Independent Maine Senator Angus King is “hopeful” President Trump’s Afghanistan strategy could help stabilize the region.
King says President Trump has no good options when it comes to Afghanistan and the war on terrorism. He says withdrawing U.S. troops would have disastrous consequences.
“No central government and an absolute free reign for Al-Qaida, ISIS, the Taliban and probably a half dozen other terrorist organizations,” King says. “That’s a threat to us.”
