“If you had told me, by the end of 2016, everything would be almost a year in the trump era of the Caliphate-but-beaten, without something, what is far worse, what is happening in the middle East, I was surprised and satisfied,” Douthat wrote in a column with the title “A war trump Won.”

Douthat wrote that the Islamic state militants in Syria and Iraq – he calls them “the Definition of a foreign policy disaster of the Barack Obama ‘s second term” – have been effectively redirected from Trump, without the need for a massive ground troop invasion and a war with Russia or the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

Trump takes credit for the success in the fight against ISIS

“This is a press error, a case where the media is not sufficiently reporting a major success, because it does not fit into the narrative of Trumpian disaster, our journalistic entities to invest,” he wrote.

Earlier this month, in Iraq, the war against the Islamic state of hostilities was declared after more than three years, the extremist fighters drove from all the territories they once held.

“Trump has avoided the temptation often suffers Republican Super-hawks in which we are supposed to fight all of the bad actors on 16 fronts at once. Instead of that he wrote to slow his radical militaris went tables instincts on Iran, Assad tolerated and avoided dial-in tensions with Russia,” Douthat.

He wrote: “And the trump strategy on Israel and the Palestinians, the butt of many Jared Kushner jokes, it seems … not that great?”

“The relatively mild reaction to the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, can fall a case-study in the expert-consensus behind the facts; the Arab world has to move other things to worry about, as even in 1995, and Trump, has helped to clarify, to change that.”

Douthat, the article ended: “So very tentatively, credit belongs where it is due — our soldiers and diplomats, Yes, but our President.”
