In Bagram, Trump held talks with the Afghan president, during which they discussed the issue of reaching an agreement with the Taliban on the declaration of a ceasefire in the country. Trump also met with the US military serving at Bagram, where he distributed Thanksgiving food. In a speech from the military base, Trump said the United States was continuing negotiations with the Taliban, which he said "wants to reach a deal" on a ceasefire. He stressed that: "We are meeting with them and telling them that a ceasefire must be declared. They did not want to do it but now, in my opinion, they want to reach it. I think that will work. ” He also stressed that the United States is "significantly reducing" the number of troops deployed in Afghanistan. This is the first visit by a US president to Afghanistan since 2014, when Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, visited the country.
