Esper:

By the end of November, US cut its troops in Afghanistan to 4000

The United States plans to cut its troop levels in Afghanistan to “a number less than 5,000” by the end of November, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said in his fresh interview.

He added detail to draw down plans U.S. President Donald Trump announced earlier this week.

The United States currently has about 8,600 troops in Afghanistan.

Trump said in an interview released Monday by Axios that the United States planned to lower that number to about 4,000.

Esper announced the lower troop levels in a Fox News interview.
