This Was the Taliban’s Reaction to Trump’s Speech

Like everyone else the Taliban were left confused by President Trumps address.

While Afghanistan’s government was impressed with President Trump’s speech on the U.S.’s strategy in the country going forward, with the Afghan ambassador to the U.S. calling the remarks a “10 out of 10,” the Taliban found it “old” and “unclear.”

Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban, said the president’s “whole speech was old,” adding that the policy outline was also “unclear.”
