In response to Campbell Campbell-Jack: Trump deserves praise not contempt for standing firm on Iran, Debs wrote:
Trump deserves praise on a range of things. He has appointed some very sound and proactive people. Nobody is really looking at the Trump doctrine. He has joined-up policies but people just want to bash him. I don’t see much praise on the BBC for the advances in Syria and the virtual defeat of the so-called Caliphate. Trump said he would not discuss his plans on the media and has stuck to it. But it’s much easier to refer to him as a madman/idiot.
