Trump to announce new strategy for U.S. in Afghanistan

Earlier on Sunday, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters that Trump had made a decision on the U.S. strategy, though he declined to provide any further details.

Trump, who returned to his golf course in Bedminister, N.J., later that day, posted Saturday on Twitter: "Important day spent at Camp David with our very talented generals and military leaders".

The war veteran has been consistently disapproving of President Donald Trump's lack of a master plan for Afghanistan.

U.S. President Donald Trump made no decision on committing more U.S. troops to Afghanistan after reviewing options presented by his national security advisers on August 18, the White House said. "As he said, he wants to be the one to announce it to the American people", Mattis said, as quoted by Reuters.

Friday's meeting was the most recent in a series of high-level talks on a broader security strategy for Afghanistan and the greater South Asia region.

In June, Mattis told a Senate panel: "We are not winning in Afghanistan".

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster and other advisers favored accepting Nicholson's request for some 4000 additional U.S. forces.

The White House said Friday that Trump was "studying and considering his options" for a new approach to the regions.

Residents can also mosquito-proof their home by installing or repairing screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out. As of Friday, West Nile virus has been detected in 31 of California's 58 counties, with 22 human cases statewide.

"The reason we had to get back together was he [President Trump] kept asking questions on all of them [options] and wanting more and more depth on it". Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain presented one that would involve an increase in U.S. troops and further airstrikes, while Erik Prince - the founder of the security company Blackwater - pressed the United States to move its strategy largely over to the private sector. Except for the Americans - who do go after terrorists if and when the Afghan forces ask for it - the rest have been busy in the "train, advise and assist" mission since 2015.

According to numerous USA intelligence agencies, even a modest increase in troops from the US and its allies would not keep the conditions in Afghanistan from deteriorating, Reuters reported.

But in past tweets, Trump's pushed for a "speedy withdrawal".

One reason the White House decision has taken so long, two officials who participated in the discussions said on Sunday, is that it was hard to get Trump to accept the need for a broader regional strategy that included USA policy toward Pakistan before making a decision on whether to send additional forces to Afghanistan. "GREAT meeting on National Security, the Border and the Military", he wrote. And he said that substituting paid contractors for US troops would be a formula for continuing the war, rather than completing it. Mr Trump, like the wider American public, has expressed his fatigue over the longest foreign war in American history and the inability of two presidents before him to achieve a decisive win against the Taliban.

"The losses and injuries our families have already suffered from the ongoing wars in the Middle East have not been addressed and there is no end in sight for them", said Pat Alviso, whose son has been deployed to Afghanistan for the sixth time. More than 2,000 United States soldiers have died in Afghanistan and the civilian death toll has well surpassed the 31,000 figure, according to figures from Brown University.

In the wake of the September 11 attacks, the U.S. led an invasion of the country to topple the Taliban from power and eliminate a "safe haven" for al Qaeda.

"There are also concerns about rival nations filling the void or major refugee flows if Afghanistan collapsed". The commission has urged Trump to reverse his position. The majority of American military fatalities took place under former President Barack Obama's watch.
