On a sweltering Washington summer day, U.S. President Donald Trump's motorcade pulled up to the Pentagon for a meeting largely billed as a briefing on the Afghanistan conflict and the fight against Daesh (ISIS). There, in the windowless meeting room known as "The Tank," Trump was to be briefed on the state of America's longest-running war as he and his top aides plotted ways ahead. In the weeks since the briefing in the Tank, Trump has split with top adviser Steve Bannon, the engine of many of his nationalist, isolationist policies.Trump emerged and declared it a "very good meeting".White House aides have readied a crash course for Trump as he prepares for the General Assembly, in part necessitated because the president has delayed some of his preparations, choosing instead to focus on the federal government's response to a pair of massive hurricanes and, to a lesser extent in recent days, his dealings with Democrats on immigration issues, according to the officials and advisers.
