Rep. Justin Amash Blasts Trump Over Taliban Invitation

Politico reports:

Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.) on Sunday denounced President Trump for inviting Taliban leaders to Camp David for peace talks just days before the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

“How about we end the war without inviting the Taliban to dinner on the week of 9/11?” Amash, an Independent who left the GOP earlier this year, said on Twitter after Trump announced that he’d canceled secret meetings with leaders of the Taliban and Afghanistan’s president.

Democratic and Republican lawmakers have ripped Trump over the planned meeting, with many expressing dismay over the timing. The 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks is on Wednesday.
