Trump said, "As far as I am concerned, they are finished for me".
Speaking to reporters at the White House on Monday, Trump said the U.S. military was already pounding Taliban positions in Afghanistan with unprecedented fire.
The Taliban "are the people who are partially responsible for our loved ones dying and other Americans dying", Riches said, but "I'd like to see it end". "We've hit the Taliban and our enemy in Afghanistan harder than we haven't over 10 years, so I'm not discussing anything right now", he said.
However, Rice also echoed widespread criticism of the president for arranging a meeting with Taliban leaders at the Camp David presidential retreat just days before the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.More news: Scottish Court Says Johnson's Suspension Of U.K. Parliament Is Illegal
Special US envoy for Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad had spent a year negotiating a peace deal with the Taliban.
He assured the American public that U.S. commanders in Afghanistan had all the authority they need to protect American forces and to prevent attacks on the homeland.
Afghan presidential spokesman Sediq Sediqqi confirmed that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had wanted to go to Washington to speak with Trump about his concerns "but I am not able to go into the details of the particular trip". It's where peace has been negotiated many, many times.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on negotiations that it is unclear if the US-Taliban talks are permanently over or only paused.
Last month Trump said he would reduce the number of USA troops in Afghanistan from 14,000 to 8,600 and didn't link the withdrawal to an agreement with the Taliban.More news: These are the first apps to take advantage of the Galaxy Fold
On Monday, the president declared that US peace talks with the Taliban are "dead".
The Taliban attack came on Thursday, when a vehicle bomb blast shook Shash Darak, a heavily fortified area adjacent to the green zone and home to several important complexes including the National Directorate of Security, the Afghan intelligence service. "That's not going to happen", McKenzie told reporters.
A big part of Trump's 2016 election victory and subsequent first term in office has been his determination to keep the United States out of what he sees as unnecessary wars in Syria and other mostly Muslim countries.
Getting out of Afghanistan, where USA troops have fought a largely fruitless battle against the Taliban over almost two decades, was a top priority.

Several Republican lawmakers concurred with the president's decision on the talks. The Taliban has said that its negotiators would have traveled to the US only after an agreement with the USA was announced and would meet only with USA officials, which rules out a summit with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. At some point in time if you want peace you have to talk to them, I don't deny that, ' said Johnson.
