Afghan Ambassador’s STUNNING Answer to Difference Between Trump and Obama
President Donald Trump had a meeting with the Afghanistan ambassador.
According to IJR, during this Q and A, the Afghan ambassador was asked about the current American administration and how the people of Afghanistan viewed President Trump. Those listening were stunned at his answer.
The ambassador gave a candid response, that provided insight into two very different men.
His full response to the question:
“I’ve personally met with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago and the president has had two phone conversations with President Ghani [The president of Afghanistan]. One call was after he won the election and one after [Trump] became president. Before the calls, we were advised to keep conversations short because, we were told, Trump will not be interested in the details of the call and does not have a long attention span, so it would be pointless to have a long call.
One has to wonder who gave the Afghans their intel on Trump? CNN? As the next part of his response suggest, they couldn’t be more wrong about President Trump:
However, we were pleasantly surprised at how much time President Trump spent asking very informed questions. The first time the presidents spoke, the questions Trump asked impressed us. “How can you win in this fight [against terrorism]?” he asked. “What do you need to become financially independent?” and “How can American business invest in Afghanistan? How can we develop businesses and mining in your country?”
You can bet these are questions Obama wasn’t equipped to ask.
However, a businessman like President Trump showed keen interest in helping Afghanistan realize its potential.
Trump would listen intently after each question, often asking follow-ups. Trump’s second call with our president was even longer than the first. Asking these types of questions for our country is something the Obama administration never did. The Obama administration was the most academic administration we have ever had to deal with but the Trump administration has been the most thoughtful and intelligent.
Trump continually asked “How can you win? What does Afghanistan need to win?” in reference to our fight with terrorism. Trump wants to win. Sincerely. All the Obama administration wanted to do was not lose.
Interesting how he characterized Obama. His summation reminds me of how Obama reports unemployment. He reports the statistics in a way to “not lose.” Obama doesn’t win at anything; because he doesn’t know how to win. He does know how to not lose. Nevertheless, Obama knows how to play the optics.
The Afghan ambassador continued,
The Obama administration was hesitant with us. The enemy could sense that. When the Obama administration announced its plans to pull troops out of the region, they announced the exact date they would do it. All our enemies had to do was wait [Obama] out. They knew the date they had to hang on until — which gave them the will to fight. They used that time to recruit and build up resources.
Again, Obama was more concerned about optics than helping Afghanistan
To bring real reform, we must be able to defeat enemies outside our country and inside. We must overthrow the Afghan warlords who are profiteering off the war. Every time we tried to remove one of them from power, [Secretary John] Kerry would say “no” because it would potentially make it unstable and require more troops be brought in. The entire Obama administration was too cautious, but Kerry was the most cautious. Perhaps the Obama administration was fatigued by the time we assumed power. [President Ghani assumed power in September of 2014.] But Trump is very different from Obama in this way.
The last statement was the most powerful of all. “But Trump is very different from Obama in this way.”
Trump is very different from Obama in just about every way.
