What the anti-trumpers on this forum cannot seem to grasp is that there is a possibility that Trump is not controlled by the same people who controlled Clinton, Bush & Obama. That the possibly remains that Trump might just be trying to keep his campaign promises. On the domestic front Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do, why do you think he's lying about his foreign policy? All I am pointing out is that Trump said he would intervene in the Middle East to "knock out" ISIS. Once ISIS is defeated Trump said he would leave other nations alone to manage their own affairs. This is a drastically better policy than we had under Bush and Obama who were never seriously fighting either Al Qaeda or ISIS and were instead using these CIA trained and funded groups to increase the defense budget and frighten Americans into giving up more and more of their liberties. Trump is a Statist-Nationalist and we should call him out when he's wrong (cop worship, trillion dollar infrastructure projects, universal health insurance, drug prohibition, the wall, Hamiltonian American System crap, etc) and give him credit when he is right.
ISIS was funded and trained by CIA/M16/Mossad/Saudis. ISIS is committing Christian Genocide in Syria. Trump has switch US support from ISIS to forces aligned with the legitimate Assad Regime in Syria who is protecting Christians. M16/Mossad/Saudis have not switched their support and are still funding ISIS. ISIS is still killing innocent people and the U.S. has blood on its hands. I understand why someone would want to intervene to right a wrong of a previous Administration. I don't agree with it but I understand it.
So far Trump has kept his word. Once ISIS is defeated we will see if he does the same in foreign policy.
