President Donald Trump speaks at Fort Myer in Arlington Va., Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, during a Presidential Address to the Nation about a strategy he believes will best position the U.S. to eventually declare victory in Afghanistan.

A roundup of editorials from the Left on Tuesday includes a look at President Donald Trump’s fitness to serve; the opinion that he now “owns” the Afghan war and what the federal government can do about the Ku Klux Klan.

From USA Today: The commitment to end a 16-year war might persist through President Donald Trump’s presidency and beyond.

From The Guardian: Congress passed legislation to kill the Klan once before, and they should do it again.

From The Atlantic: Is the president unfit to lead if he backs a surge into Afghanistan? It seems he lacks the consistency to stay the course he’s charted, according to The Atlantic.
