So OP, how are those reconstruction efforts in Syria and Iraq doing? Does Trump even care? Do you?

Uhm, but the US hasn't defeated ISIS.
ISIS were defeated in Iraq by the Iraqi army with support from American and British forces.
ISIS were defeated in Syria by Syrian and Kurdish forces with Russian support.
And ISIS haven't really been 'defeated' anyway, they've just melted away into the population to wait for their next opportunity.

That we are aware of, thankfully the Russians did come assist their old ally that kind of forced our hand in dealing with ISIS.
Then Trump did what he promised, bombed them and sent more ground troops in to assist, its not a solo trump victory but it certainly helped make a difference.
