On Trump's "Library" Barb, Congress Leaders Defend PM Modi

On Trump's

Musharraf has publicly said that "India should remain out" of Afghanistan, which Pakistan sees as its area of influence.

Trump last month moved to pull all 2,000 United States troops out of Syria and cut by half the 14,000-strong force in Afghanistan, calling for less spending overseas. In his letter of resignation, Mattis said that he left due to disagreements with Donald Trump, and also because of the withdrawal of the US forces from Syria. If I was asking on exam for some of the reasons for the collapse of the Soviet Union, and a student stated it was because of the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan I might give a few pity points, but the notion that Afghanistan "bankrupted" the Soviet Union, and that is why it is now Russian Federation is just ridiculous. In the past Trump has called Modi a "fantastic man" before going on to slam India's policies, and the Washington Post even reported that the USA president "has been known to affect an Indian accent and imitate" Modi. "But when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, fighting also started in northern Afghanistan like other parts", Tanai told Daily Times from Kabul on Friday. But if Pakistan would help us, we could get Taliban to the table and end the war in Afghanistan. "They can do what they want there, frankly", he said.

At a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Trump addressed his planned withdrawal of USA troops from Syria, which he abruptly announced a couple weeks back.

He referred to Prime Minister Modi as an example of how world leaders were talking about their contributions that were nowhere near the billions of dollars the USA was spending. "I'm not happy with what he's done in Afghanistan and I shouldn't be happy", Trump said.

And this, in short, is why India is not militarily involved in the country, since attempting to intervene would only draw Pakistan further into the conflict, when the broader Indian foreign policy goal is to let Afghans decide their own future for themselves. "India does not send its armed forces overseas except under the specific mandate of United Nations peacekeeping operations", a government source said.

Kevin Hart says he’s reconsidering decision to step down as Oscars host
The celebrated daytime host is an advocate and member of the LGBT community -- and has hosted the Academy Awards herself twice. She can not forgive Hart for what he has said, because she was no affected by it in the same way.


India slammed the comments with top govt sources tell WION, "India firmly believes in the critical role that developmental assistance can play in transforming human lives".

India encourages private investment in Afghanistan besides community development projects including in education, health, agriculture, irrigation, drinking water, renewable energy, flood control, micro-hydropower, sports infrastructure and administrative infrastructure. Now, the Prime Minister (Modi), who I think is a fantastic man, called me the other day and said we are lowering it to 50 per cent.

Washington's Pew Research Centre, which conducts annual surveys of USA public opinions on Afghanistan, reported recently that by the end of 2018 the Afghan war had become very unpopular.

"Dear Mr. Trump, Stop mocking India's PM". In 1980, President Jimmy Carter announced that the USA would boycott the Olympics that year taking place in Moscow in response to the Soviet presence in Afghanistan.

In this vein, Trump mocked Modi for funding a library in Afghanistan under Indian aid and bragging about it repeatedly in private conversations.
