The president had disappointed many Americans with his failure to end the conflict in Afghanistan, Macgregor told Fox News.
The interviewer highlighted the number of lives lost, the billions of dollars wasted and lack of strategy in Afghanistan before underlining a troop withdrawal.

Macgregor rejected the argument that there must be a pullout strategy so that the US did not lose its footing in the region.
