The incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump promised to stop wars even after he leaves office. This is reported on the website of the White House.
According to Trump, he will always strive to stop “endless wars”. The president noted that at the moment, the presence of U.S. Armed Forces in Afghanistan is at its lowest level in 19 years. He added that the situation is the same in Iraq and Syria.
The head of state also stressed that he was able to rebuild the U.S. Armed Forces and support U.S. soldiers. He said that $2.5 trillion was invested in “beautiful new equipment” that was made in the United States.
In early November 2020, there were media reports that Trump was going to withdraw troops from Afghanistan before he left office. To this end, he is believed to have resigned Pentagon chief Mark Esper, who had opposed such a decision.
