Trump, Pence Deny White House 'Turmoil' After Canceled Camp David Meeting With Taliban
WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 10th September, 2019) President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence both denied on Monday that they had a split over whether or not to hold negotiations with the Taliban at the presidential retreat Camp David.
"A lot of Fake news is being reported that I overruled the VP [vice president] and various advisers on a potential Camp David meeting with the Taliban," Trump said in a Twitter message. "This Story is False! I always think it is good to meet and talk, but in this case I decided not to."
Trump accused the US media of being "dishonest" and "corrupt" and of trying to misrepresent his administration as deeply divided on the issue when it was not.
"The Dishonest Media likes to create .
"That's Absolutely Right Mr. President. More Fake News! The Dishonest Media never contacted our office before running with this story and if they had, we would have told them I FULLY support your decision," he said.
