President Donald Trump announced that the peace talks of the US with the Taliban are over and that the US military has dramatically scaled up attacks on the insurrectionary in Afghanistan.

Trump commented on the long-term negotiations that were going on between the US and Taliban and to extricate US troops from the country after 18 years, in the White House, saying:

“They are dead. As far as I am concerned, they are dead to me”.

Trump had a secret plan of flying the leader of the Taliban in for the direct talks at the Camp David presidential retreat over the weekend, but after his announcement in the White House, he canceled that plan too.

Driving another nail in the coffin of what had appeared to be nearly completers negotiations, Trump said that a US military onslaught on the guerrillas was now at its fiercest in a decade.

He said in a tweet:

“Over the last four days, we have been hitting our enemy harder than at any time in the last ten years!”

“We have killed over a thousand Taliban in just the last 10 days”, said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, on Sunday.

Trump stubbornly denied that the stroke of his sudden shifts on Afghanistan was causing turmoil.

Until this weekend there was hope that this Afghan US negotiations will somehow take a turn and will miraculously get solved and the US troops will return to the US from Afghanistan.

In return, the Taliban would offer security guarantees to keep extremist groups out.

But, then on Sunday Trump said that he has canceled a meeting between himself and Taliban at the Camp David, near Washington.

He said this is because of the killing of a US soldier by the Taliban last week.

The cancellation was announced on Twitter and it was the first time most of the American learned about the dramatic change in the plans.

Many people in Washington were shocked at this revelation that the Taliban were at the point of visiting the presidential retreat on the eve of the anniversary of the September 11 terrorists attack.

But the people are well aware of Trump’s unpredictable manner of negotiating.

But Trump denied all these allegations, and accused a journalist of trying “to create the look of turmoil in the White House, of which there is none.”

He tweeted:

“A lot of fake news is being reported that I overruled the VP and various advisors on a potential Camp David meeting with the Taliban. This story is False! I always think it is good to meet and talk, but in this, I decided not to”.
