The president's statement came as the American nation is preparing for the Thanksgiving.
President Trump's unannounced Thanksgiving visit to Afghanistan and the USA contingent there indeed came as a surprise for many, with First Daughter Ivanka being among the many who lauded POTUS' cozy joint celebration with the military.
But while the USA envoy, Zalmay Khalilzad, claimed the Americans and the Taliban were close to reaching "a deal in principle", there is no sign of calm on Afghan soil. We will continue to review our processes and, if required, take further action.
This time, Grisham said the White House made arrangements to ensure continuity in the president's Twitter account, which posted happy Thanksgiving tweets as he was in the air, including one thanking the military.
There are now about 13,000 American troops in Afghanistan, and the US has already scaled back and pulled at least 2,000 troops out within the past year, the Times reported. "That editor chose to have a reporter write a new story on Trump's surprise trip to Afghanistan, and neglected to update Kwong's original piece in a timely manner".
"We just had a nice Thanksgiving dinner", Trump said amid chants of "U-S-A" during his speech at the Bagram base.
Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. both weighed in on the story on social media. Trump Jr. said in a tweet with a screen capture of Newsweek's original headline.
Kwong did not respond to a request for comment.
