Donald Trump News: More losses to the US: Says Taliban

The Taliban has condemned US President Donald Trump's decision to suspend the ongoing talks with the group to end the 18-year war in Afghanistan as an "anti-peace" move.

"Now that US President Trump has announced the suspension of negotiations... this would not harm anyone else but the Americans themselves," the group said in a statement on Sunday.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, Trump said he was calling off secret meetings scheduled for Sunday with Taliban representatives and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at Camp David in Maryland, US.

Citing a Taliban attack in Kabul last week in which 12 people, including a US soldier, were killed as the reason, Trump also cancelled the US-Taliban negotiations ongoing in Qatar for nearly a year.

The Taliban said the cancellation of talks would "lead to more losses for the US", "harm its credibility" and "show their anti-peace stance in [a] more clear way".

Trump calls out John Legend, Chrissy Teigen on Twitter, gets vulgar response:

President Trump late Sunday took to Twitter to identify his own success in criminal justice reform and called out celebrities for not acknowledging his efforts, namely singer John Legend and his "filthy mouthed wife" Chrissy Teigen.

Trump blasted the singer and his wife “for talking now about how great” the reform is, but not playing a role when it mattered.  Trump signed the First Step Act into law last year that reduces mandatory minimum sentences in certain instances and gives judges more discretion. More than 3,100 inmates will be released under the act, which has been praised by both Republicans and Democrats.

Legend responded to Trump’s tweet by appealing to the First Lady.

“Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody—ANYBODY—will praise you. Melania, please praise this man.  He needs you,” he tweeted. A minute later he tweeted, “Your country needs you, Melania.”

Teigen called the president a “p***y a** b***h” for tagging “everyone” but her in his tweet. Legend, in a  tongue-in-cheek appeal, requested that followers not to retweet the vulgar comment as a hashtag.

Legend, 40, and his wife have been fierce critics of the president. The Grammy-winner called Trump a “piece of s***” and a canker sore on the country after the president’s criticism of Baltimore.

In an interview with USA Today, Teigen said, "I've actually been a big Donald Trump hater [or a long time]. I've been trolling him for about five to seven years now," she said. "I've been doing this forever, and I take pride in that." Fox
