Trump makes surprise Afghanistan visit

United States President Donald Trump arrived in Afghanistan on Thursday for an unannounced visit to American troops serving in the country for Thanksgiving Day.

The president visited Bagram airbase and met with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. "The Taliban wants to make a deal. We'll see if they want to make a deal. It's got to be a real deal, but we'll see. But they want to make a deal," he said in his address to the troops.

Last Christmas, Trump paid a surprise visit to US troops stationed in Iraq. His trip to Afghanistan comes after Trump called off talks with the Taliban in early September.
