Hillary Clinton "We Came, We Saw, He Died Hahaha" (Gaddafi) and you sick women destroyed Libya!!!VS- WAR CRIMINALS for Regime change : Clinton, Bush, 0bama - and Trump? stay strong man
Trump destroyed the ISIS caliphate in 8 months (with the help of the Russians). Trump has thus fulfilled his promise.

While Hillary was at the helm, the tension with Russia had already increased.
