Trump is not going to be doing any “nation building” anytime soon, says a former Green Beret

(INTELLIHUB) On Tuesday, Lt. Col. Michael Waltz told Fox News anchor Bret Bayer that he is “proud of our president” in regards to Donald Trump’s recent announcements on the deployment of 4000 troops to Afghanistan and said that we are not going to see any “nation building” over there anytime soon.

“You are also not going to see a bunch of arbitrary timelines,” Waltz said, before taking a proverbial stab at Obama for his botched timeline.

The former Green Beret pointed out how it’s going to take the U.S. some time to train the Afghan Army to take care of themselves and that this is most likely what U.S. forces will be doing.

Waltz believes that the U.S. will make it tougher for other countries like Pakistan who support radical Islamic terror.
