I know it’s an unpopular thought, but what if Donald Trump has the right idea?

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he has negotiated a deal with President Assad of Syria that involves a fully democratic election, after all.

So, if Trump mends America’s bridges with Russia, and they jointly hammer the fake-Muslim fanatics, it’s possible – just remotely possible – that everyone will get what they want?

That’s good business. Right?

President-elect Donald Trump has reaffirmed his campaign trail position that assisting the Syrian government in fighting Isis should be the US’ main objective in Syria, despite appeals from rebels for continued help in their fight against President Bashar al-Assad.

“I’ve had an opposite view of many people regarding Syria. My attitude was you’re fighting Syria, Syria is fighting Isis, and you have to get rid of Isis,” he said in a wide-ranging interview with the Wall Street Journal on Friday.

Mr Trump has stated that while he “did not like [Mr Assad] at all”, shoring up his regime is the best way to stem the extremism that has flourished in the chaos of the civil war and threatens the US.

He has also been emphatic about mending ties with Russia, Syria’s long-standing ally and military backer in the conflict.
