NEWS DESK: US President Donald Trump has said that the US has inflicted massive losses on the Afghan Taliban in recent days than in many years.

“Over the last four days, we have been hitting our Enemy harder than at any time in the last ten years!” said the US president on Twitter on Monday night.

“We have been serving as policemen in Afghanistan, and that was not meant to be the job of our Great Soldiers, the finest on earth,” he added.

The statement comes a day after Trump cancelled peace talks with the Afghan Taliban, citing last week’s attack in Kabul where 12 people, including a US soldier, were killed.

Hours after the US president unexpectedly cancelled the secret talks, the Taliban issued a statement saying: “President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel Afghan peace talks will cost more American lives.”
