President Trump has given Defense Secretary Jim Mattis the authority to deploy more troops. However, Mattis said that this authority does not include a delegation of strategy-making.
 
The president's top aides Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner both favor a plan to use private military contractors to mentor the Afghan military, according to The American Conservative.
 
On Monday, the US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson said National Security Council has already had three sessions “exploring a full range of options for Afghanistan .”
 
“And when I say a full range of options, I mean the entire landscape. And I think it's reflective of the deliberations that we want to undertake,” Tillerson said.
