Always a tweet.

President Donald Trump announced this weekend that he scrapped plans to meet with Taliban leaders at Camp David the week of the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The cancellation came after the fundamentalist political movement took credit for killing 12 people, including an American soldier, in an attack on Kabul.


Fewer people praised Trump for calling off the meeting than those who criticized him for allowing the Taliban on United States soil to begin with—to Camp David on the week of 9/11, no less. The Taliban sheltered al Qaeda leader and 9/11 orchestrator Osama bin Laden for a number of years, as well as refused to assist in shuttering al Qaeda bases.

One of the loudest voices against Donald Trump's decision to meet with the Taliban is turning out to be Donald Trump himself, pre-presidency.

We know there's always a tweet, but in this case, there are several condemning then-President Obama's efforts to reach a deal with the Taliban.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insists that the United States has made significant strides towards peace talks, but even some of Trump's allies within the Republican party are criticizing the decision to bring terrorists into Camp David.

Former Republican Congressman and challenger to Trump in 2020, Joe Walsh criticized the decision as well.

Virtually no one thought this was a good idea to begin with.

Rather than negotiating peace talks with a brutal regime, Trump is now more in his element: insulting John Legend and Chrissy Teigen on Twitter.
