‘The Five’ reacts to Trump, Taliban peace talks breaking down


THIS IS “THE FIVE” .” ♪ ♪>>Dana: PEACE TALKS WITH THE TALIBAN ARE CANCELED. TRUMP CANCELED. TRUMP, PULLING THE PLUG AFTER TALIBAN LEADERS CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY FOR AN ATTACK THAT KILLED A U.S. SOLDIER AND 11 OTHERS. THE TALLY BAND, RESPONDING TO THE PRESIDENT’S MOVE BY THREATENING MORE AMERICANS WILL DIE AS A RESULT. LET’S WATCH.>>IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE PRESIDENT TREATING FOREIGN POLICY LOOK AT SOME KIND OF GAME SHOW.>>DONALD TRUMP IS NOT AFRAID TO WALK AWAY FROM A BAD DEAL.>>THIS IS THE WORST PRESIDENT WHEN IT COMES TO NEGOTIATING. IT’S MORE OF HIS ERRATIC BEHAVIOR THAT PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF.>>I THINK THE PRESIDENT WAS RIGHT TO CANCEL THE MEETING. I THINK WHAT HE’S TRYING TO DO IS FULFILL A CAMPAIGN PROMISE.>>FOR THE U.S. TO MEET WITH THE TALIBAN AND NOT HAVE THE LEADER OF AFGHANISTAN TO MEET WITH THE TALIBAN AM, IT’S SOMETHING THAT’S DOOMED TO FAILURE.>>Dana: PRESIDENT TRUMP, CALLING OFF FUTURE TALKS WITH THE TALIBAN, AND DEFENDED TRYING TO HAVE THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE.>>President Trump: THEY THOUGHT THAT THEY HAD TO KILL PEOPLE TO PUT THEMSELVES IN A LITTLE BETTER NEGOTIATING POSITION. YOU CAN’T DO THAT. YOU CAN’T DO THAT WITH ME. THAT’S IT AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED. I LIKE THE IDEA OF MEETING. I’VE MET WITH A LOT OF BAD PEOPLE AND A LOT OF GOOD PEOPLE DURING THE COURSE OF THE LAST ALMOST THREE YEARS. I THINK MEETING IS A GREAT THING. I THINK THAT MEETING WITH, YOU KNOW, YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT WAR. THERE ARE MEETINGS WITH WAR OTHERWISE WARS WOULD NEVER END. YOU’D HAVE THEM GO ON FOREVER. WE HAVE A MEETING SCHEDULED. IT WAS MY IDEA AND IT WAS MY IDEA TO TERMINATE IT.>>Dana: HE IS THE DECIDER. THE TELE- BAND WAS SET UP FOR AN INCREDIBLE PROPAGANDA OPPORTUNITY AT CAMP DAVID. THEY BLEW IT. SO THEIR ARROGANCE MIGHT HAVE DONE THEM IN, BUT MAYBE THAT’S GOOD.>>A COUPLE OF THINGS. THE ATTACKS WERE HAPPENING AT A PRETTY STEADY BASIS. WE WERE ATTACKING THEM TOO. WE CAN MOVE ABOUT A THOUSAND PEOPLE OVER THE LAST MONTH. I THINK THE TALIBAN WAS GETTING A LITTLE BELLIGERENT. THE PRESIDENT SAID THAT HE WANTED TO MEET WITH THE TALIBAN. THEY WANTED TO GO HAVE A CEREMONY, SAYING, HEY, LOOK WHAT I DID. THE PRESIDENT SAID, HEY I DON’T WANT A CELEBRATION. I WANT TO LOOK THESE GUYS IN THE EYE AND SEE IF THEY ARE SERIOUS ABOUT TAKING THE NEXT STEP. IT WAS HIS IDEA TO GO TO CAMP DAVID. IT WAS POMPEO WHO PUT THE TALKS TOGETHER. THEY ARE NOT READY TO TALK PEAC PEACE. THEY WERE ALREADY SUCCESSFUL. THAT WAS THE TALK IN BETWEEN SESSIONS. CLEARLY THEY DID.>>Dana: JUSTLY, THERE ARE TWO NARRATIVES. THIS WAR HAS GONE ON TOO LONG. WE THINK THIS IS THE WAY FORWARD. THE TALIBAN WAS BASICALLY SAYING, WE HAVE RUN OFF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. AREN’T WE GREAT. THOSE TWO THINGS WERE NEVER GOING TO BE ABLE TO REMAIN WITHOUT COLLIDING AT SOME POINT.>>Jesse: I DON’T LIKE THE SYMBOLISM OF THE TALIBAN COMING TO CAMP DAVID. IT’S HALLOWED GROUND. THESE PEOPLE ARE BARBARIC. THEY MAKE KIM JONG UN LOOK TAME. THEY PERSONALLY COMMIT ATROCITIES. THEY PERSONALLY DO HORRIBLE HORRIBLE THINGS. YOU CAN’T EVEN SAY THEM HERE ON TELEVISION. SO TO GIVE THEM THAT CAMP DAVID PLATFORM I THINK WAS A BAD IDEA AND I’M GLAD THE PRESIDENT CANCELED IT. WE HAVE HAD BAD GUYS AT CAMP DAVID BEFORE. I UNDERSTAND THE PRESIDENT WANTING TO WITHDRAW FROM AFGHANISTAN. ALL POWERS EVENTUALLY FIGHT THERE AND THEN THEY LEAVE. WE JUST WANT TO LEAVE ON HER OWN TERMS AND I BELIEVE HIS STRATEGISTS WERE TRYING TO LOCK THOSE TERMS IN SO THEY COULD LEAVE WITH SOME SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT. BUT ALSO, NOT JUST LEAVE AFGHANISTAN FOR TERRORISTS TO RECONSTITUTE THEMSELVES AND MAKE ATTACKS HERE. WANT TO BE A LONG PROCESS AND WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING TO END THIS WAR AND SPENT THE TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT WE ARE SPENDING THERE, HAVE IT SPENT HERE.>>Dana: ONE OF THE THINGS, IS THAT THEY REFUSED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE TALIBAN WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR 9/11.>>Juan: WE HAVEN’T SET IT, BUT THIS WEEK IS THE ANNIVERSAR ANNIVERSARY. I THINK IT’S NOW AT 18 YEARS SINCE 9/11. THE IDEA THAT THE PRESIDENT WOULD INVITE THESE PEOPLE, WHO WERE THE HOST FOR THE TERRORISTS WHO ATTACKED TO COME TO THIS COUNTRY. I FIND THAT INCREDIBLE. I DON’T THINK THAT WAS POMPEO. IT WAS THE PRESIDENT. NO. I THINK YOU ARE SAYING, HEY, WAIT. THERE WERE OTHER PEOPLE PUTTING THINGS TOGETHER. I THINK HE’S THE GUY. HE’S THE GUY. HE APPROVED OF THIS IDEA, WHICH I FIND — ‘S BEFORE THERE WAS A HUGE OUTRAGE AGAINST THAT. I DON’T THINK PEOPLE ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS WAS NOT THE RIGHT TIME.>>Juan: BOOK, I JUST THINK THERE’S A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SAYING, WE ARE GOING TO PUT PEOPLE ON TRIAL, VERSUS WHAT WE SAW HERE, WHICH IS BRING THEM IN.>>Jesse: I AGREE. I DON’T THINK IT WAS THE RIGHT PLACE TO DO IT. I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT US OVER. I THINK TRUMP HAS THE RIGHT INSTINCT THERE. BUT WHEN YOU STOP AND THINK ABOUT THE IDEA THAT YOU ARE GIVING CREDIBILITY TO PEOPLE FOR TERRORISTS AND THEY DON’T EVEN HAVE A DEAL WITH THE GOVERNMENT. THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT. YOU SAW WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE SOVIETS PULLED BACK. IT JUST LED TO CHAOS AND MORE TERRORISTS TAKING ROOT THERE. HOW CAN WE INVITE THESE GUYS WHEN WE ARE SAYING TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE FLEEING THE BAHAMAS AND THE DEVASTATION, OH, YOU CAN’T COME HERE. THAT’S AN OUTRAGE.>>Dana: THOSE ARE TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS. I WANT TO ASK ABOUT THE INVESTMENT AND RETURN ON INVESTMENT THAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED OVER THE LAST 18 YEARS. THE ABILITY FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN TO BE ABLE TO GO TO SCHOOL AND NOT BE AFRAID FOR THEIR LIVES, EVEN THOUGH THAT’S NOT TRUE ACROSS THE BOARD. AND ALSO, TO BE ABLE TO PREVENT AL QAEDA FROM BEING ABLE TO ATTACK US FROM THERE. THAT HAS PAID OFFENSE SOME WAY. BECAUSE IF YOU PULL OFF OF AFGHANISTAN, YOU EXPOSE THE U.S. PART OF IT MAY BE TO ACCEPT THE FIGHT AGAINST ISLAMIC TERRORISM WOULD BE A MULTIGENERATIONAL STRUGGLE AROUND THE WORLD. BETTER TO STAY ON OFFENSE THEN TO RETREAT TO PLAYING DEFENSE ON AMERICA’S. FAR BETTER TO HAVE MUSLIM ALLIES ON OUR SIDE. MISSILE ATTACKS DO NOT STOP AL QAEDA. TO JESSE’S POINT, I KNOW A LOT OF AMERICANS PROBABLY WENT, “OH HELL NO.”>>ALL THE PRESIDENT HAS TO DO IS SAY, I’M GOING TO DRAW DOWN, BUT I CAN’T PULL OUT, BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED IN IRAQ. I FINISH IT IN 2017. I GOT ASKED TO BECOME SECRETARY OF DEFENSE. HE SAID, THEY TOLD VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN AND HIS DIGNITARIES, THEY SAID, IF YOU PULL OUT, THERE’S AN AL QAEDA GROUP READY TO MOVE IN. THEY PULLED OUT ANYWAY. WHEN THE PRESIDENT PULLS OUT, HE’S NOT NOT SAYING I WANT TO DUMB TAKE OVER THE COUNTRY. THAT GIVES US AN IDEA OF WHAT’S HAPPENING ON THE GROUND LOVE AL QAEDA AND ALL THE TERRORIST ACTIVITIES THAT ARE GOING ACROSS THE PAKISTAN AFGHANI BORDER. IF YOU WANT TO GET MORE ALLIES INVOLVED, ABSOLUTELY. BUT THE PRESIDENT JUST EXPLAINED THAT IT’S NOT ABOUT AFGHANISTAN. IT’S ABOUT A SPYGLASS INTO THE TERROR NETWORKS THAT ARE EXISTING AND THRIVING THERE. WE GET COUNTLESS BENEFITS FROM BEING THERE AND UNDERSTANDING HOW THEY OPERATE.>>Jesse: THAT’S AN IMPORTANT POINT IS THAT YOU WERE LEAVING A COUNTER TERRORIST IN THERE TO LAUNCH OPERATIONS AND ALSO GAIN INTELLIGENCE. BUT ALSO, MAYBE LEAVE SOME SMART PEOPLE. MAYBE WE COULD GET PAID BACK FOR ALL THE WORK.>>Juan: 18 YEARS. 18 YEARS WE’VE BEEN THERE. 18 YEARS, THREE PRESIDENTS. I THINK WE’VE GOT 2300 AMERICANS DEAD. 3500, IF YOU INCLUDE THE ALLIED FORCES. I THINK IT’S TIME FOR US TO THINK ABOUT HOW WE HANDLE THIS, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT THERE TO STAY FOREVER.>>I KNOW THESE ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS, BUT WE’VE HAD TROOPS IN EUROPE SINCE THE END

  1. So here is Trump playing with dictator countries and these countries are laughing at him,in the meantime we are loosing all of our allies because they know what this game is all about,Trump is playing with fire and the US is the one getting burned,this is a dangerous game for the US 😡

  2. tRUMP is a con man, not a successful "dealmaker". The problem is that there are so many losers in this country that aspire to be like him. They think cheating on their wives with porn stars and running some shady business is being successful. Pathetic losers.

  3. Lindsey Grahams feelings about Trump 3 years ago summed it up beautifly,Trump is Shallow,says the worst things possible about Imagrants,doesn't know how laws work,he's a race baiting xenophobic,religious bigot,jackass 👍

  4. Trump knows Iran is a bad deal! Liberals are so evil they don’t care if the military or innocent people die! Go Trump!
    Vote Trump in 2020!!!

  5. I respect and admire my President but the second I heard he wanted to bring those dirtbags to Camp David, I jumped from my chair. NO F'ING WAY!!!

  6. bin Laden supposedly attacked because we wouldn't leave Saudi Arabia. So we stay overseas so they won't attack us, on their land… again. Man, rich people are dumb as dogshit.

  7. Democrat liberal socialist are stuck with the nothingburger. They were foaming at the mouth either way. Now the Goebbels machine be is in full melt down. The lies the liberal spread are growing.

  8. Oh – for God's Sake – they killed an American soldier while the US President was calling for conciliation – they can come back to the table once they have suffered for every American life they take – American servicemen's lives are not cheap – they are real people with families and loved ones…

  9. He can't even give the correct weather forecast provided by international meteorologists. Much less any political action. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤡

  10. Trump does everything Putin tells him to because they bankrolled Trump businesses. When Satan 45 loses in 2020, Trump goes bankrupt (again) and sent to prison (finally). ANY FUNCTIONING ADULT 2020 🇺🇸

  11. Trump is doing good, at least he is honest and tries to do what is right for USA and for the world. And he can say NO to the deep state war party OWO imperialists.

  12. Keep these radicals out of the United States, permanently, they can't be trusted or the other fact is that they read and follow the handbook of evil called the Quran.

  13. Fox is all cool… now that it's not happening. No calling out the president for having such a dumb idea in the first place. That too in September!! Where is the line Fox news?

  14. Mr.President what are you trying accomplish to meet with bad people,terrorists,dictators and oppressive regime leaders?You can’t simply accomplish anything with these kind of people.I am really disappointed at you now.

  15. Takes a real stable genius to even consider sitting down with bloody religious fanatics at Camp David and giving them the world stage. When will you wake up to the fact that the man is unfit for the job.

  16. You guys work for Trump so make a better effort at venerating and adulating his every reprehensible actions, tweets, lies, sharpie lies, nepotism, corruption and crimes. Trump is a pathetic moron and his supporters, are endorsing his every move. Fox News, as the Trump propaganda / re-election campaign, you have a lot of work to do and be prepared to torch the very little integrity you had. Actually, Fox News you have no integrity so it will be very easily to support the most vile US president in history at no cost to you conscience. History will remember that Fox News and the Murdocks supported the destruction of everything that the US ever stood for. Trump's America is a joke on the world stage and no one Trust the US anymore as Trump lies all the time, is completely unstable, and is using the US and its institution like his own toys. NOAA, make sure you lie for Trump so that you do not hurt his pathetic ego.

  17. 🔴👍YES TRUMP 2020👍🔴
    This President knows how to play chess to WIN!!
    🔴👍YES TRUMP 2020👍🔴

  18. Of course Juan as usual has no plan. None of the left ever do. All they have is criticism. The wars in the middle east have done nothing but suck the lives of American soldiers and money from American taxpayers. So when someone tries to do something about it, they get major criticism. Why is that? Well, it's an easy answer. Follow the money. Who is profiting from the middle eastern wars? Not you, not me, not the families of the American soldiers who die there. Our President is trying to put an end to it, and it is an Herculean task. I would think he would get more support in this effort. But no, except among the more intelligent, the real thinkers, he gets criticism. Oh, and the profiteers making money off the wars in Afghanistan and the middle east. And his political opposition, of course.

  19. no one on the right or left wants us to leave Afghanistan especially our great CIA Secretary of State pompeo since God only knows how much money he's also making off of the heroin trade

  20. MOAB and call it a day. At this point, thats the only end I see. I'd imagine our president has to be narrowing down options. I'm for it at this point as well.

  21. How dumb are you all? Trump is trying to get the american troops back from Afghanistan. But beofre he does that he needs reassurances from all sides they will keep peace and collaborate with their own government. Nothing wrong with it. Afghanistan should go it alone and not expect the Americans to send their troops. Good move from Trump.

  22. This is nothing more than a failed attempt by trump to get media attention for himself for the 2020 elections. American voters KNOW it is just another trump SCAM by the LIAR IN CHIEF!!!!

  23. Everybody , EVENTUALLY , need's to sit down and stop the war , Trump at least TRIED to have talk's , otherwise you will be in afghanistan forever !!!

  24. Why are we just thinking about talking to terrorists? If I thought we were going on the same page with all the kids and the best part of this team is going to be expecting a call from the school 😀 so much more 😁 than 😬 I have been 😑 for the transportation like to 😭 it is so hard for us to make sure that we can afford to get together with our friends and family in society. Uh what if we don't have to negotiate? With terrorists..

  25. Trump thinks he can "wing it" when it comes to foreign policy negotiations – another example of just how stupid he is – got spanked by North Korea in the same way.
