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.

Listening to the so-called experts is a double-edged sword.  Of course they know more than Trump, a squashed raisin knows more than Trump, but these are the guys that have lied every step of the way to bring about more war for their own financial gain.  These are the "experts" who said there were WMDs in Iraq and all this other nonsense.  Don't you get that military people want perpetual war?  It's in their best interests.  They don't give a fuck about the safety of the country or the lives of the soldiers and certainly not the lives of the civilians in the countries that we've invaded and occupied.  I have no problem with a President telling all these guys to fuck off and just withdrawing troops. We have accomplished next to nothing in these countries for 20 years.  Terrorist organizations get replaced by other terrorist organizations and we prop up some at the expense of others until we decide to prop up a new one at the expense of the one we just got tired of propping up.  We don't belong there, period.
