TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS HOST: American forces are still fighting in Afghanistan, it's been 17 years since we first sent troops there to topple the Taliban government. We still have thousands of Americans in the country.
So far this year, eight of them have been killed. President Trump hates this. We happened to know, he has often complained to people around him about the quagmire that Afghanistan has become.
You remember that when he ran for President, one of Trump's central promises was to keep America out of pointless foreign wars like this one. Washington despised him for saying that because it implicated them and their failures, but voters appreciated hearing it. And yet somehow the war in Afghanistan has continued to this day fruitlessly. That's thanks almost entirely to bullying from our thoroughly discredited foreign policy establishment. They are happy to keep things the way they are.
