US threatens Afghan leadership with $1B aid cut

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo went to Afghanistan to meet with President Ashraf Ghani and opposition leader Abdullah Abdullah. The US may punish the two men for their failure to form a unity government with the Taliban by cutting its annual aid package to the country, according to reports. Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof shares his expertise. Reports claim that the Trump Administration will use the Defense Production Act (DPA) to obtain more than 60,000 coronavirus test kits.
