Maybe he should have staggered the withdrawal or had some sort of written agreement that the Kurds are not to be harmed. 

Okay, not a military mastermind, but how can ISIS possibly make headway in Syria now that Assad pretty much has the civil war wrapped up? Also, Russia is influential in Syria. I jut don't buy this narrative that ISIS is going to have. resurgence in Syria. 

Between the pullout, the deregulations, tax cut, and the First Step Act, Trump pretty much will win at least 70% of Gary Johnson's voters.

Full disclosure, I hate Trump.
We had to pull out of Syria eventually.  The issue I have the way he did it.  He makes decisions and has no mindfulness, no thought to the consequences of his actions.
The truth of the matter is no president is a military mastermind.  Certainly no one since probably Eisenhower.  But, these former presidents assemble a staff of these guys.  This guy has a revolving door in his cabinet because he's doesn't listen to anyone.  Unless you blindly agree with him.  And that's some North Korea shit when it comes to international diplomacy.
