“Hours after the US and the Taliban signed a landmark agreement aimed at ending America’s war in Afghanistan, President Donald Trump said that he plans to start pulling troops out of Afghanistan immediately.

‘Everybody’s tired of war,’ Trump said at a White House press briefing Saturday afternoon [2/29/2020], adding that the 18-year conflict in Afghanistan, America’s longest-running war, has ‘been a particularly long and gruesome one.’

The US and the Taliban signed a conditional peace agreement Saturday morning.”
