Fox News’ Juan Williams Calls Trump’s Surprise Visit To Afghanistan A “Photo-Op”


President Trump spent his Thanksgiving Day visiting our nation’s soldiers in Afghanistan – a selfless, honorable act that somehow is still earning him criticism from his haters.

See, according to Juan Williams of Fox News, Trump’s surprise trip was nothing more than a “photo-op.”

Speaking to Chris Wallace on Sunday, Williams said of Trump’s visit:

The other part of the political spin is that with Trump, it seemed —and I think this is why you had the thought, I certainly had it, it looks like a photo op. Remember, he hadn’t gone to visit any war zone until last year. He was criticized for it. This is his first visit to Afghanistan, our longest war, 2,000 plus Americans dead. He had no preparation. He e talked about a cease-fire, but his military people said we know nothing about any cease-fire with the Taliban, and the Taliban said they know nothing about a cease-fire.

Breitbart has more:

On this week’s broadcast of  “Fox News Sunday,” panelist  Juan Williams said President Donald Trump’s Thanksgiving trip to visit U.S. troops in Afghanistan looked like a “photo-op.”

Williams said, “The other part of the political spin is that with Trump, it seemed —and I think this is why you had the thought, I certainly had it, it looks like a photo op. Remember, he had gone to visit any war zone until last year. He was criticized for it. This is his first visit to Afghanistan, our longest war, 2,000 plus Americans dead. He had no preparation. He e talked about a cease-fire, but his military people said we know nothing about any cease-fire with the Taliban, and the Taliban said they know nothing about a cease-fire.”

The Daily Caller added:

Williams answered in part, saying that the visit “looks like a photo-op.”

 

“Remember, he hadn’t gone to visit any war zone until last year, he was criticized for it. This is the first visit to Afghanistan, our longest war, 2,000 plus Americans dead. He had no preparation,” Williams added. “He talked about a ceasefire but his military people said, ‘We know nothing about a ceasefire with the Taliban.’ And, the Taliban said they know nothing about a ceasefire.”

 

“He then talked about negotiations with the Taliban. And again, his own diplomats said we know nothing about any ongoing talks with the Taliban. The president canceled talks with the Taliban last September if you recall after they were engaged in a violent incident.”

  

Williams has been a longtime Trump critic on Fox News. In May, he called Trump an “idiot” and has previously suggested that the president finds it “valuable” to “attack people of color.” 

 

Last year, he called Trump’s rhetoric on the migrant caravan “lowball politics.”
