Donald Trump has been learning and evolving on the campaign trail. Take ISIS, for example:

November 13: “I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me.”

So Trump must have a plan of his own for defeating ISIS? Yes indeed, but he wants to keep it a secret:

May 27: “All I can tell you is that it is a foolproof way of winning.”

Oh come on, Donald, tell us the plan:

Today: “I am also going to convene my top generals and give them a simple instruction: They will have 30 days to submit to the Oval Office a plan for defeating ISIS.”

I guess the generals have gotten smarter in the past few months. Good work, Obama!
