The U.S. President Donald Trump has said the United States could win the war in Afghanistan in a week if it wanted to fight it.

Speaking during a press conference with the Romanian President Klaus Iohannis on Tuesday, Trump said “As I’ve said several times, not using nuclear, we could win that war in a week if we wanted to fight it. But I’m not looking to kill 10 million people. I’m not looking to kill 10 million Afghans, because that’s what would happen.”

Furthermore, Trump vowed to bring home the U.S. military personnel from Afghanistan emphasized that he will not withdraw all forces.

Trump further added “We’ll always have intelligence and we’ll always have someone there.”

He also added that the United States officials are engaged in negotiations with both the Taliban and the Afghan government regarding the withdrawal plans.
