POTUS Offers New Strategy with Little Specifics on Afghanistan

Andrew Desiderio, Congressional Reporter for The Daily Beast, discusses President Trump's prime time address to the nation on how the U.S. will be moving forward in Afghanistan. The president's remarks offered what was in many ways a reversal on his campaign rhetoric promising to pull out of the country completely. Instead Trump sounded similar in tone to President Bush and President Obama when it came to the war-torn nation. We talk about how Trump's remarks may have been a distraction, so the Administration could turn attention away from the chaos surrounding the president's response to Charlottesville. We also dig into the town hall Paul Ryan hosted right after POTUS' Afghanistan speech, and whether he was tough enough on President Trump when asked about his handling of Charlottesville.
