And don't give me Trump accomplished the stock market, or jobs. He didn't -- the USA did.

THe tax cuts weren't significant i=enough for individuals, and while corporations talk great tax cuts it has not caused a surge in investment.

The continued growth is from 10 years of recovery. You will see jobs added when you have 10 years of recovery. There has been no surge in job growth....or GDP. Just a constant growth ---or recovery -- for 10 years.

If Trump is responsible for the 7 and a half years before ---please tell me how.

Most of us see the Taliban for what it is, but we don't see why we should be the ones to fix that problem.

We have forgotten lessons learned. You can't go in and bomb people, kill grand pa and all his goats, and then expect the survivors to like you. They will never like you as long as you stay.

You have a choice. Go in and annihilate your enemy and then leave, or just dont bother with it.

This is one !@#$"d up administration
So why didn't he invite them to Maralago for a beautiful piece of chocolate cake?

This guy is terrible at making deals. The Taliban at Camp David--unbelievable.

The week of 9/11 you invite the leaders of the Taliban to Camp David. It is just wrong.

Pompeo is saying that the USA has killed a thousand Taliban recently. Really -- that's how you approach peace talks...oh okay.

But then you call them off because of a Taliban attack...one of some 50 recently.

I'm thinking that the optics of the meeting with the Taliban at CAmp David was suddenly realized to be not a good thing -- especially this week. So the Trump admin. jumped on an excuse to cancel.

What a mess.

Trump is incapable of doing anything involved with foreign affairs...or domestic, for that matter.

Where is the NK Deal? I would think condo on the beach would be being built by now!

Iran deal - they are now enriching. Almost certain they will go nuke - but, worse yet, they won't be our partners in any way (Russia, China and Europe will deal).

China "deal" - just chaos, we keep hearing "we'll start the talks again". That's now how things work.

Afghanistan - more of the same (I admit this one is tough for anyone - but if Trump is so great, he should just admit we got Bin Laden and pull out and say "you folks deal with the mess").

Syria - Ties into the whole deal....bottom like, more Muslim radicals than ever before almost everywhere - including Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, etc.

Israeli-Palestinian - oh, yeah, Jared was gonna "make a deal". So was the Trump org lawyer who just quit the Administration

The "New" Nafta - (pretty much same as the old...with regular tweaks). NOT RATIFIED...may never be.

We could go on but that covers a large part of the world so no need to.

Default Mike Pompeo says we killed 1000 Taliban in last 10 days but...

He says Taliban killed one American soldier and now Trump says all talks are off?

I'm a bit confused and when did we start meeting with terrorists?


1000 (even) Taliban to 1 American Soldier in 10 days? Why does this sound fishy and like complete campaigning on Trumps part?

Bingo. The old Vietnam body count propaganda. There is no clear information about the Afghanistan war status available to the public. Smoke and mirrors from the Trump Administration.

Exactly. 1000 people in 10 days just sounds way too bizarre and like a Trump puppet show.
