Reaction to Donald Trump's admission that he had scheduled -- then canceled -- a secret meeting with the Taliban at Camp David was greeted on Twitter with equal measures of incredulity, scorn and mockery on Sunday morning with many questioning why he didn't keep it to himself.


In a multi-part tweet on Saturday night, the president bragged about canceling a meeting no one knew existed writing, "Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President of Afghanistan, were going to secretly meet with me at Camp David on Sunday. They were coming to the United States tonight. "

That led one commenter to bluntly point out, "I like presidents who don't invite the terrorists who planned & committed the 9/11 attack on the anniversary of the attack."

That was the general tenor of the comments, see below:
