"It isn't impossible for us to have victory there," he added. The president's decision to escalate the war against the Taliban, which has made modest gains... [Read More]

"My original instinct was to pull out -- and, historically, I like following my instincts," Trump said. "But all my life I've heard that decisions are much different when you sit behind the desk in the Oval... [Read More]

"The consequences of a rapid withdraw are both predictable and unacceptable," President Trump said. Retired Air Force General Rob Givens applauded the president's plan to continue to fight in...

This wasn't, after all, delivered from the Oval Office, but from the Army base at nearby Fort Myer, Va. [Read More]
