US Senator Rand Paul on Wednesday called for his country's troops to be pulled out of Afghanistan.

The call comes following media reports last month that US President Donald Trump was considering withdrawing half of American troops from Afghanistan.

“I agree with Donald Trump. It’s time to declare victory in Afghanistan and bring our troops home,” Paul tweeted. “We spend $46 BILLION a year in Afghanistan! How about we take that money and build roads and bridges and strengthen border security here in America?”

US has 14,000 troops in Afghanistan, where its war has become the longest.
