“The president has not made a determination to drawdown US military presence in Afghanistan and he has not directed the Department of Defense to begin the process of withdrawing US personnel from Afghanistan,” Garrett Marquis, a spokesman for the National Security Council, said in an emailed statement on Friday.

If it is up to Trump he would have requested all US troops stationed abroad to return home. Withdrawing troops from Afghanistan would leave a vacuum that can easily be filled by others in that region making the situation a lot more worse than it is right now.
