    US President Donald Trump made a speech about his policy regarding the US War in Afghanistan, which will turn 16 years old this October - the longest running war in US history.

    Trump's speech was maligned on several sides. His base objected to his announcement of an indefinite conflict until US objectives were met (as he had run on a platform of not involving the US in pointless wars), while establishment Republicans were more positive, but disliked how it took seven months for Trump to announce a key policy that was only marginally different from his predecessors.

    Liberals hated the speech too, but you don't need us to tell you that.
