Four years in, Trump has plenty of unfinished business
Oct 24, 2020 1 min, 46 secs

When Trump took over the White House, the number of U.S.

forces in Afghanistan stood at about 8,400, and there were about 6,800 troops in Iraq.

Within a year, the number of troops in Afghanistan climbed to about 15,000.

Trump approved commanders’ requests for additional troops to reverse setbacks in the training of Afghan forces, fight an increasingly dangerous Islamic State group and put enough pressure on the Taliban to force it to the peace table.

With an eye toward the election, Trump has accelerated his push to bring troops home, teasing that all U.S.

troops could be out of Afghanistan by the end of the year.

Pentagon officials said the number of troops in Afghanistan will drop to 4,500 in November.

But defense officials insist there are no plans to have all troops home from Afghanistan by the end of the year.

officials also say there currently is no approved plan to reduce the number to 2,500 by early next year.

During his 2016 primary run, Trump sought to mark his ground as a hard-line immigration enforcer who would build “a great, great wall on our southern border.”.

“And I will make Mexico pay for that wall,” Trump said as he launched his run for the White House in June 2015.

Nearly four years later, Trump still has work to do completing his wall and much that has been completed has been paid by U.S.

Mexico has steadfastly refused to pay for the border wall, though Trump earlier this year suggested that the wall is being paid, in part, by remittances from Mexican immigrants working in the U.S.

In his 2016 victory speech, Trump said he would rebuild the nation’s highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools and hospitals, making American infrastructure “second to none” and putting millions to work in the process.

On the debate stage four year ago, Trump said his federal income taxes were “under a routine audit” but promised they would be released as soon as the IRS finished

Four years later, Trump says the IRS still hasn’t completed its work, and the president has yet to fulfill his promise to release his tax returns
