President Trump spoke with a high-ranking Taliban official over the phone on Tuesday, being the first U.S. president to do so. Republican officials have begun to call for a change in plans after the peace deal that was signed on Saturday that called for all U.S. troops to be out of the country by the end of 14 months. Many Republicans are urging President Trump to keep a small force of troops in Afghanistan, or else the progress made will collapse. Many do not trust that the Taliban has true intentions for peace and will ravage the war-torn country once the U.S. is out of the picture. Leaving a small force in Afghanistan would go against the agreement however, where the Taliban have agreed that they will not “use the soil of Afghanistan to threaten the security of the United States and its allies.”
