McCain slams Trump over Afghanistan, unveils his strategy to win war

‘Senator John McCain has blasted President Donald Trump over a lack of strategy in America’s 17-year war in Afghanistan, and filed his own plan for the Senate to vote on. It involves more troops, more bombing and an enduring US presence in the country. “Now, nearly seven months into President Trump’s administration, we’ve had no strategy at all as conditions on the ground have steadily worsened,” McCain, who is the chairman of the Senate’s Armed Services Committee, said in a statement Thursday. “The thousands of Americans putting their lives on the line in Afghanistan deserve better from their commander-in-chief.” “We must face facts: We are losing in Afghanistan and time is of the essence if we intend to turn the tide,” he said. McCain has filed his plan to win the war as a proposed amendment to the annual defense bill.
