“I condemn the despicable car bombing attack in Kabul today that has left scores of innocent civilians dead and hundreds injured,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “This murderous attack renews our resolve and that of our Afghan partners. The Taliban’s cruelty will not prevail.”
A member of the Taliban drove an ambulance packed with explosives onto a crowded Kabul street Saturday, detonating a blast that killed at least 95 people and injured 158 others. The attack within a week after militants killed 22 at a hotel in Kabul.
The president said the U.S. is “committed to a secure Afghanistan that is free from terrorists who would target Americans, our allies, and anyone who does not share their wicked ideology.”
