Last night, President Donald Trump spoke to the nation about his new strategy in Afghanistan. The reviews were somewhat mixed. Some felt he was "wagging the dog" due to a horrendous past week as President, trying to divert attention to the world stage and away from the issue of race, bigotry and Charlottesville. Others felt he finally stepped up to the position. Still, others, particularly Breitbart followers felt he betrayed his campaign promise and is only getting American involved in greater combat and investment of American blood and treasure.
So far, the Congressional delegation’s comments about President Trump’s Afghanistan speech has been somewhat muted, although a North Louisiana Congressman freshman has issued a statement in support.
