We made Middle East more chaotic than ever before - Trump

Fresh from the sweep of five Eastern states on Tuesday, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has outlined the contours of his foreign policy vision. He criticized president Barack Obama and democratic contender Hillary Clinton over Middle East policies.
Speaking in Washington, DC on Wednesday, the billionaire businessman said "America first" would be the vision of his presidency.
His policy would “replace randomness with purpose, ideology with strategy, and chaos with peace,” Trump said.
Arguing that America had "saved the world" from Nazism in the 1940s and then from Communism during the Cold War, Trump said the US foreign policy "veered badly off-course” after 1990, and began to make less and less sense.
"Logic was replaced with foolishness and arrogance, which led to one foreign policy disaster after another," he said, culminating with the "dangerous idea” that the US could remake the countries of the Middle East into western-style democracies. This has led to “horribly wasted” lives and trillions of dollars.
“Our actions in Iraq and Syria have helped unleash ISIS,” Trump said, while the US has “done nothing to help the Christians, and we should be ashamed.”
"We made Middle East more chaotic than ever before," Trump said.
