Trump, Afghan President Contradict One Another on Situation There

Trump, Afghan President Contradict One Another on Situation There: 

When Ghani spoke, he told reporters that the increased number of U.S. troops already has produced “an immense change on the ground" that he described as a “difference of day and night.”

"Victory is within our sights," Ghani boldly declared, according to a pool report.

In late August, Trump ended a months-long White House-Pentagon review by hiking the American military presence there to around 12,000. He also used his first prime-time address as president to announce a revised strategy that features a larger focus on counterterrorism operations and putting more pressure on Pakistan, where U.S. foes often flee for safe haven.
