The United States and the Taliban previously agreed to draft a peace agreement under which Washington would withdraw thousands of troops from Afghanistan. In return, the rebel group pledged not to turn the country into a base to deploy attacks on the United States and its allies. Trump planned to hold talks with the Taliban in the United States in September, but canceled after the militant group bombed and killed 12 people, including one US soldier. Only 2 months left before the US presidential election season will kick off with preliminary elections in the states. While some polls show President Trump is behind some of the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential candidates, many political observers think Trump is more likely to win. .
