Not that specifically. With his child-like fascination of boootiful chocolate cake and vewy powerful submarines, Trump doesn't really come across as an inter-dimensional backgammon genius, which is what we are being asked to believe by the post-deplorable Trump-firsters.
Trump also said that if Putin had not helped out in Syria then Assad would have fallen within the week and everything would be fine. Only a simpleton or a liar would say something so ridiculous.
... I agree with most solid Trumpists, that the attack on the Assad airstrip
is an anomaly. It is very hard to make sense of it ... I can only assume that
there is something we don't understand about Assad and the civil war ... and
that the intelligence services (with infinite spying power) convinced Trump to
take a course which will both destroy ISIS, etc., AND unseat ASSAD.

"Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words,
a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing
should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts.
This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid
all detail and treat his subject only in outline, but that every word tell." WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS:
