President Donald Trump said that he could win the war in Afghanistan in a week if the country was "wiped off the face of the Earth."


Trump made the remarks on Monday during a meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, according to a White House pool report.

“I could win that war in a week," Trump reportedly said. "I don’t want to kill 10 million people. Afghanistan could be wiped off the face of the Earth. I don’t want to go that route.”
