    President Donald Trump and his national security advisors meet on Friday to discuss US strategy for the war in Afghanistan.

    The 16-year conflict is the United States’ longest war, and there are 8,400 US soldiers still on the ground battling the deadly insurrection.

    Options being considered include sending more American troops, withdrawing US forces completely, or replacing them with private contractors.
