After Shocking victory of Donald Trump, Nothing his view about ISIS, Russia, Syrian war, US-backed Rebels and Syrian President Bashar al Assad, mixed reaction erupted in Syrian in social media. While according to Al- Bawaba reports supporters of Assad celebrating, trump victory has been unpleasant for Syrian opposition.

Across social media, Assad supporters have praised the election of Trump, a man who they see, potentially, as an exciting new addition to the coalition fighting against terrorists forces in Syria.

Trump has previously expressed support for Assad and his allies, indicating he would side with the Syrian Government if it helped to defeat Daesh (Islamic State, ISIS, ISIL and IS). "I don't like at all, but Assad is killing ISIS. Russia is killing ISIS and Iran is killing ISIS,” he said.

Following Trump’s victory, opposition starts attacking Trumps plans on Syria stated in campaign race for US presidential.

With Trump’s vocal support of Assad, and his tight-knit relationship with Russia, political analysts have predicted the end to US support for rebel groups in Syria, and perhaps a new US ally in the shape of Assad.

One activist write in twitter “Election of Trump: one of the consequence in Syria will probably be the end of military support to rebels.

Another says: one thing that may be impacted upon under Trump is Syria policy - more US-Russia cooperation against ISIS as focus rather than US focus on Assad removal!

And it’s not just the analysts who think so, with Assad supporters taking to twitter to praise Trump’s win as a victory for the Syrian Government and Syria:“The close relationship of Trump (US) with Putin (Russia), will be positive as it will end the kids gaming of continue conflicts, especially in Syria. They agree here”

Another says “Since Trump won. Enemies of Assad take my advice. Apologize for Assad before he takes his revenge”.

“Trump is Putin's ally, which means by the end of the year, no pig terrorists will stay in Syria.” Another activist says.

Now Trump is in charge, it seems that this approach may not last. So far he has been incredible vague on his foreign policy, in Syria and the rest of the Middle East, and it remains to be seen if and how this will change under President Trump.
