One of Trump's major campaign promises was a new plan to be produced by his generals within 30 days of taking office, but that never happened. These are the kinds of promises that would be easy to keep since it's not like the opposition can block him.

The danger is that he can get a reputation for making policy off the cuff and not taking it seriously. This is one of those times when he should learn that his credibility is at stake.

OK, so what about the agenda?

“One of the things I did ask is, ‘Why did President Obama sign that agreement with Iran?’"

Which Iran: the one instrumental in helping Iraq defeat IS, or the GOP bogeyman?

I think it is very generous of you to still consider that Trump has any credibility left to lose.

“One of the things I did ask is, ‘Why did President Obama sign that agreement with Iran?’"

Yes, the agreement signed along with Britain, France and Russia amongst others. Foolish really to seek a peaceful solution when it was so much easier to have another war.

The Iraqi PM even told a joke - when Trump was asked about being wire-tapped, the Iraqi PM took a pre-emptive strike by telling Trump:

"We had nothing to do with the wiretap.”

Because he knew that with Trump even targeting an ally like the UK, it's probably only a matter of time till Iraq gets blamed for the alleged wiretap too, lol
