Chris Wallace, the host of FOX News Sunday, questioned President Donald Trump’s efforts to invite members of the Taliban to Camp David near the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Wallace reported that negotiations with the Taliban are “now in question after the president canceled a secret meeting at Camp David.”
“We’re coming up this week on the 18th anniversary of 9/11,” Wallace told Karl Rove, a former adviser to President George W. Bush.
“What are your thoughts about the president wanting to meet with the Taliban face to face — people with the blood of thousands of Americans on their hands — at Camp David and now calling off the meeting?” the host asked Rove.
Rove insisted that the move “would be worth it” if U.S. soldiers could be withdrawn from Afghanistan.
“I question the whole idea of holding the meeting on the anniversary of 9/11,” Wallace remarked. “All respect to Karl, he talked about this deal was going to bring peace, but it wasn’t going to bring peace.”
“There was no national cease fire,” he observed. “There was no assurance that there was going to be a deal between the Afghan government and the Taliban. There was no guarantee that they were going to protect women.”

Trump flip-flops on meeting with Iran with ‘no preconditions’– then blames it on the media
President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.
"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.
In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.
“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”
Internet fears Trump’s ‘locked and loaded’ tweet about oil field bomb means he’s gearing up for war with Iran
the largest U.S. oil producer can be brought to its knees with a drone carrying a bomb. President Donald Trump responded to intelligence that the drone didn't originate in Yemen, but rather from Iraq or Iran, by saying he was "locked and loaded."
"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.
3 out of 9 companies in one state have filed for bankruptcy since Trump promised to ‘bring back coal’
President Donald Trump's promises to coal miners have fallen along with his other broken campaign promises. Another state is facing the harsh reality that Trump is not riding in on a white horse to save them.
According to Axios, three out of the nine coal companies in the Powder River Basin in northeastern Wyoming have filed for bankruptcy and another two companies are consolidating. Kentucky coal miners have been protesting Blackjewl, which filed for bankruptcy in July, withdrawing payroll dollars from miners' accounts. Little has been heard about the Wyoming workers as those companies crumble, however.
