US losing ground in Afghanistan

US losing ground in Afghanistan: 

Trump’s first and only policy speech last August was on South Asia and Afghanistan in which he chided Pakistan for giving the US ‘only deceit and lies’ and praised India for its great developmental assistance and pledged to win the war. But despite US efforts, Pakistan has not budged. Even pressure by US Defence Secretary Lieutenant General Jim Mattis, of the ‘last chance to Pakistan’ fame, to get Pakistan to act against the Afghan Taliban and Haqqani network, has not worked.
