"Hope our Government responds firmly and reminds America that since 2004, India has built extensive roads, dams in Afghanistan and pledged over $3 billion in assistance", he said.

Modi has been "constantly telling me he built a library in Afghanistan", Trump said.

"I think most scholars would agree that Afghanistan was a contributing factor in the Soviet collapse, but I don't think anyone would go so far as to pin sole blame for the collapse on Afghanistan or to say that the Soviets went 'bankrupt fighting in Afghanistan, ' " said Sarah Cameron, a historian who studies Russian Federation and the Soviet Union at the University of Maryland. "You know, living - think of this - living in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I guess they considered a nice mansion, I don't know, I've seen nicer", he said, referring to bin Laden and his former compound in Abbottabad.

"Dear Mr Trump, stop mocking India's PM". The US recently asked Pakistan to help bring the Afghan Taliban to the negotiation table. And so, there is little wonder that Donald Trump - who spread his business empire through hotels, casinos and luxury residences - recently downplayed India's role in funding a library in war-torn Afghanistan. Mr Mohid is the first official of Afghanistan to visit India in the new year even as the US continues to push ahead with a dialogue with the Taliban representatives. "We are talking to a lot of different people".

India on Thursday reminded the United States that it does not send soldiers overseas but for U.N. Peacekeeping Operations. "They were right to be there", Trump told reporters at the White House.

India is considering supplying additional military hardware to Afghanistan to help it combat terrorists, according to people aware of the matter. They should be fighting.
