I want to look them in the eye. The withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan was a key campaign pledge for Trump, and one his team has worked hard to achieve over the past two years.
Trump made the remark to reporters at the White House on Monday.
"We've been policemen there for a long time, and the government's going to have to take responsibility", Trump said.
The Taliban's statement came hours after Trump told reporters that the USA was walking away from negotiations after almost a year of talks that aimed to pave the way for an American withdrawal from Afghanistan following 18 years of war.
In a thread of tweets explaining his decision to cancel the meeting, Trump wrote, "if they can not agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don't have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway".
Nine rounds of talks had already taken place between the USA and Taliban representatives in Doha, the capital of the Gulf state of Qatar.
You can only have meaningful peace talks with an insurgency if they think they are losing and want to win through talks at least some concessions before they go down completely. I think there are multiple indications of that from what USA officials are saying.
These and other news outlets agree that the maneuvering highlighted the divisions between Mike Pompeo, the secretary of State, and John Bolton, the national security adviser. It is no a secret that many Afghan civilians have been killed by both the Taliban and the U.S. military and its Afghan allies while negotiations were taking place.
Mr Trump said he called off negotiations because of a recent Taliban bombing in Kabul that killed a USA service member, even though nine other Americans have died since June 25 in Taliban-orchestrated violence.
In an unexpected move, Mr Trump had arranged to meet with senior Taliban leaders and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at the Maryland retreat.
Bringing U.S. troops home from Afghanistan has been one of Trump's main foreign policy objectives, and the Republican president said his administration was still thinking about a drawdown of the 14,000 U.S. soldiers in the country. "Not soldiers or innocent victims of terrorism", said Jim Riches, a retired NY deputy fire chief who responded to the terror 2001 attacks and lost his son, Jimmy, a fellow firefighter.
The Taliban have refused to negotiate with the Afghan government it sees as illegitimate and a puppet of the West.

Special US envoy for Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad had spent a year negotiating a peace deal with the Taliban.
Tallon wants USA troops home, and she really wants the US government to do more to probe allegations, which she and others have raised in a lawsuit, that Saudi government employees knowingly assisting the hijacking plot. "I've watched the Taliban do things and say things they've not been permitted to do before".
"It's very, very likely at this point that there will be a deal between the Americans and the Taliban." .
The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private deliberations. The group's hardline position of bringing guns to the negotiating table is inconsistent with the goal of peace and has justifiably angered the USA administration. In return, the Taliban would have to provide assurances that it would follow the constitution of democratic Afghanistan - including the rights of women - and wouldn't allow the country's soil to be used for launching terrorist attacks against others. Neither China, nor any other major regional power, wants to fill the void that a USA withdrawal would create in Afghanistan.
But problems quickly emerged.
On Sunday, U.S. congresswoman Liz Cheney commented on the idea that the Taliban would be invited to Camp David, tweeting, "Camp David is where America's leaders met to plan our response after al Qaeda, supported by the Taliban, killed 3000 Americans on 9/11".
Meanwhile, in neighboring Pakistan, officials are bracing for more browbeating now that the talks are off. Pakistan, which is widely believed to host the Taliban leadership in the garrison town of Quetta, had helped facilitate negotiations, and its assistance was seen as key to rehabilitating relations with Washington. He has since been recalled to Washington.
BOWMAN: The details in the deal were pretty closely held, but, essentially, the USA would cut troops if the Taliban renounced al-Qaida and agree to an intra-Afghan meeting. For Pakistan, the good thing is that there still exists an interest in restoring the peace process from the USA side.
In the statement, Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid also accused the United States of lacking maturity and experience, after pulling out of talks over one incident.
Afghan government officials greeted Trump's decision to scrap the Camp David meeting with relief. That date was to be either November 2020, the same month of the USA presidential election, or January 2021, he said. I want to talk to these Taliban negotiators. Untold numbers of Afghans have been victims, too.
He also said that the Taliban and the Afghan government had agreed to talks on 23 September.
"After nine months of talks, there is no result", Hadi lamented.
