President Trump is committed to winning in the Middle East and ending terrorism.
During a dinner in Washington last week, Trump told Afghanistan’s ambassador to the United States that he was willing to work with him to end terrorism.
Ambassador Hamdullah Mohib spoke with Trump about the current crisis in the Middle East.
“However, we were pleasantly surprised at how much time President Trump spent asking very informed questions,” Mohib revealed during the dinner, as reported by Independent Journal Review. “The first time the presidents spoke, the questions Trump asked impressed us.”
“Trump wants to win,” Mohib continued. “Sincerely. All the Obama administration wanted to do was not lose.”
According to Mohib, former President Barack Obama was incredibly indecisive and seemed ineffective at dealing with terrorism.
“When the Obama administration announced its plans to pull troops out of the region, they announced the exact date they would do it,” Mohib said. “All our enemies had to do was wait (Obama) out. They knew the date they had to hang on until — which gave them the will to fight. They used that time to recruit and build up resources.”
“The entire Obama administration was too cautious, but Kerry was the most cautious,” Mohib stated. “Perhaps the Obama administration was fatigued by the time we assumed power (in 2014) … But Trump is very different from Obama in this way. This is good, for the future of Afghanistan.”
Other critics agreed that Obama was far too cautious.
“President Obama’s approach was extraordinarily naive in the Middle East,” Nile Gardiner, a former aide to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, said in a statement to The Washington Times.
