Trump shocked many in Washington Saturday night with the announcement of the meetings cancellation, with many surprised that the announcement of Taliban diplomats heading to the US would come over Twitter.
The canceled meeting came less than a week after the US envoy to Afghanistan announced the framework of an agreement with Taliban negotiators that could see an end to the 18-year war in Afghanistan.
However, a Taliban-credited attack in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, that killed 11 civilians on Monday as well as one US service member was cited by Trump as the reason for the peace talks’ cancellation.
Also set to appear on CBS was former defense secretary Jim Mattis who left the administration last year after publicly clashing with Trump’s position on withdrawing troops from Syria.
Mattis is currently on a tour promoting his new book, “Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead,” which reviews have said largely does not focus on his time in the Trump administration or his interactions with Trump.
