President Donald Trump has reached a decision on American troop levels in Afghanistan, Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters Sunday on his way to Jordan. Mattis declined to reveal the president’s decision, adding the review process was “sufficiently rigorous” and Trump wants to announce it to the American people himself. Trump is reportedly expected to announce a surge of a few thousand troops in the country where the U.S. has been fighting for more than 15 years.
