Over the past 18 years 2,300 U.S troops have died in Afghanistan in a fight against the Taliban. New questions arise after Russia might have put a bounty over U.S troops heads in attempt to encourage more killings of U.S troops by the Taliban. This information was informed to President Donald Trump in March. However, in a tweet the President denied ever being given the information and then claimed the NY Times as being fake news. According to the president, the Trump administration has been the toughest administration to Russia. Military officials have claimed that Russia is an enemy of the United States but is treated as an ally.
