Gradual pullout would have been best, definitely (I agree the US etc. should never have been there, or Iraq).  ISIS is very much an idealogy.  if not the physical ISIS then something else replaces it (see Taliban and Al Quaida).  It's natural progression for the anti-west and the US rapidly pulling out increases the chance that something resurfaces.  A Russian/Turkish backed Muslim Alliance is not unthinkable - the world is a strange place.

Legalizing Industrial hemp and the Justice Bill should have been huge Christmas wins for Trump, but he managed to negate that (in the short term) over a wall and a ham-fisted withdrawal of troops (and subsequent Mattis resignation).  The whole pending mess with Jerome Powell isn't gonna help either (Bet he wishes he kept Yellen on now)
