President Donald Trump is facing backlash, including from members of his own party, after announcing he planned to hold a secret meeting with the Taliban at Camp David this weekend.
Camp David is where America’s leaders met to plan our response after al Qaeda, supported by the Taliban, killed 3000 Americans on 9/11.
No member of the Taliban should set foot there. Ever.
The Taliban still harbors al Qaeda.
The President is right to end the talks.

Never should leaders of a terrorist organization that hasn’t renounced 9/11 and continues in evil be allowed in our great country. NEVER. Full stop. https://t.co/pagnRFuFtc

How about we end the war without inviting the Taliban to dinner on the week of 9/11? https://t.co/5SC1mAmYlg

While @BarackObama is slashing the military, he is also negotiating with our sworn enemy the Taliban–who facilitated 9/11.
