Trump says he would leave ‘strong intelligence’ in Afghanistan | The Hill

President Trump said Monday he would leave an intelligence presence in Afghanistan, though he has long hoped for a full withdrawal of U.S. military presence from the country.

“I would leave very strong intelligence there,” Trump told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson in a wide-ranging interview that aired Monday night.

Trump said he’d like to “get out” of Afghanistan but added that it is a country with “a lot of good hiding places” and needs to be watched.

His comments follow reports of the Taliban pushing to rewrite a draft agreement under which the U.S. would withdraw troops from Afghanistan in exchange for pledges that Taliban leaders would help combat terrorism.
