Fox News analyst Brit Hume blasted the Trump administration’s ongoing peace talks with the Taliban in Afghanistan, saying a pullout of troops would be tantamount to losing.

“This is called losing,” Hume said. “We completely–ultimately abandoned that situation over there, partly because it’s unpopular, partly because people are frustrated with it, partly because it’s been going on so long. We are not likely to appreciate the results and the public won’t either.”

In the past week, the U.S. and Taliban negotiators finalized a preliminary peace agreement while the Taliban has also ramped up attacks on provincial communities. Hume spoke on a panel about the peace talks on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.
