In 2017, President Donald Trump began taking meetings with enlisted US service members who deployed to Afghanistan in order to get a better understanding of America’s longest war.
“I want to sit down with some enlisted guys that have been there,” Trump told advisers, according to the national-security journalist Peter Bergen’s latest book, “Trump and His Generals: The Cost of Chaos.”
“I don’t want any generals in here. I don’t want any officers,” Trump added. “I just want enlisted guys.”
One of the first group of Afghanistan veterans to speak with Trump were US Navy SEALs who spoke critically of the war.
“It’s unwinnable. NATO’s a joke. Nobody knows what they’re doing,” the SEALs said to Trump. “We don’t fight to win. The morale is terrible. It’s totally corrupt.”
