NEW PLAN

Report: Trump to Send Up to 3,900 More Troops to Afghanistan

Up to 3,900 additional U.S. troops will be sent to Afghanistan under the Trump administration’s new strategy to stabilize the country’s government, the Associated Press reported Tuesday, citing senior officials. The report comes a day after President Trump said during a primetime address that his administration would not “telegraph” a specific strategy and would not set an arbitrary timetable for withdrawal. Trump did not say how many additional troops would be sent to Afghanistan, but the AP reports the number is around 3,900.
