Hillary: I Won’t Say What I’ll Do With Afghanistan If Elected

Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that while she agrees with President Obama’s decision to delay the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, “I will not sit here today and say what I would do upon taking office” in an interview broadcast on Friday’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” on CNN.

Hillary said, “I think what you’re seeing with President Obama is a perfect example of a leader ,who has strong convictions about what he would like to see happen, but also pays attention to what’s going on in the real world, and his decision is one that I agree with. I will not sit here today and say what I would do upon taking office because, again, we want to bring our troops home. We certainly don’t want them engaged in on the ground combat. We want them to help support and train the Afghan Army, and we want them to continue to work with the government of Afghanistan to try to help strengthen security for them. So, I can’t predict where things will be in January of 2017, but I support the president’s decision.”
