Reporters are blind to context. I heard Trump give a contrast of where Iraq is now to where it was when Saddam was running it. Trump made it clear that Saddam was a bad guy, but at least Saddam wasn't letting Iraq be used for a terrorist training ground. Now, it is a terrorist training ground. There was no praise of Saddam except to say that he didn't allow terrorists to breed there. I drive a VW, does that mean I am praising Hitler because he started VW? Not quite. The media is using this to beat on Trump because they don't like him.
