Trump's "Cease Fire" BS

Pathological liar and con man Donald "Rump" Trump yesterday, during his photo op trip to Afghanistan, speaking about the Taliban:
“They didn’t want to do a cease-fire, but now they do want to do a cease-fire, I believe, and it will probably work out that way. And we’ll see what happens.” (our emphasis)
Suhail Shaheen, a member of the Taliban's negotiating team, shortly after Trump's brag:
“The Americans walked away from the negotiating table, and now the ball is in their side — it is up to them to come back if they want to solve this and get the document to signing and to the stage of implementation. Our positions remain the same.” (our emphasis)
The Taliban's position is "no cease fire."  Trump's "we'll see what happens" is his usual tell for "I'm lying, because I don't expect (fill in the blank) to happen."

Trump's Thanksgiving trip= publicity stunt/distraction/ego stroke.

Trump fans will claim he was being presidential, giving up his holiday to fly into danger and try to make a peace deal. it's all a sham.

donnah -- Trump's speech to the troops was, of course, all about himself and how we should be thankful for him. Despicable.
