I don't know if Trump will be able to turn things around. Part of me thinks he's all big talk. He certainly likes to make a lot of bold promises. Obama has pretty much pushed everything to the breaking point due to his incompetence, lack of experience, and total failure to provide a vision of an end-state. Unqualified to hold office by birth? Cant say that for a fact, I do know that he doesn't have the managerial experience.
Another thing I know is that under your Lord and Savior the middle east has blown up. Despite what you may think, no one knows if Iraq would have even survived the Arab Spring. Given the fact that Syria is Baathist as well it would probably look exactly like it. What is known is that if American soldiers were still there ISIS would never had made the inroads that it did, and they wouldn't be driving around in our HMMWVs. We can thank Obama for throwing in the towel.
There is, however, a partisan line to toe, so its all "Bush is bad", "Obama is good" despite the fact that it was Obama that screwed it up. Say what you want and blind yourself to whatever reality you choose, but Iraq was calming down under Bush. The insurgency was being defeated, and the government set up by the Coalition SURVIVED the wave of uprisings in the Middle East. There was no massive, bloody revolution like there was in Libya, Syria, Egypt, and Tunisia. I know because I was there.
