Trump says Taliban talks back on in surprise Afghanistan visit

President Trump made a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Thanksgiving and announced that he has re-opened peace talks with the Taliban. ’The Taliban wants to make a deal and we’re meeting with them,’ Trump said during a meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. The visit for Thanksgiving comes after a prisoner swap with the Taliban aimed at resuming peace negotiations.
