Trump cracks media jokes to reporters' kids during Halloween Oval Office trip
Yesterday was a momentous day in the White House with the President welcoming the children of the press pool. Perhaps the biggest treat of all: That they got to do so in the Oval Office, with President Trump himself.

Logar Governor Saleem Saleh told Anadolu Agency the helicopter crashed after taking off from Kharwar area where the US and Afghan forces conducted an operation against the Taliban militants.

As the war in Afghanistan continues to grow more violent, and the Taliban introduces deadlier tactics, the Afghan security forces have borne the brunt of the attacks, suffering losses some Afghan and Western officials fear they may struggle to sustain.

The group claimed the chopper was part of a commando operation with the Afghan military and was heading to Kharwar district, located in the province of Logar, where the operation was to take place.
