The only thing goofier than believing that a bunch of Russians literally came over and voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election wearing their MAGA hats is claiming Trump decided to go to Iraq after he caught a bunch of crap from his haters on Twitter for not going. Imagine being such an angry, irrational person that this in any way makes sense to you. Also, one would have to be incredibly self-centered to think they could in any way influence the president to do a damn thing.
Former Secret Service agent, Dan Bongino perhaps said it best:
Presidential trips to conflict zones are NOT scheduled days in advance. They’re scheduled weeks in advance w/advance teams on the ground up to 1-2 weeks prior. Your dopey suggestion that Trump took this Iraq trip in response to your criticisms this week is just dumb.

We especially like how he said, ‘Dear Libs’. He’s so considerate, right? Dopey suggestion, indeed.
And Sharyl Attkisson’s ‘assist’ is gold:
I just said this. That's been my experience from learning about trips made by presidents in the past. They aren't spur of the moment. They aren't planned at the last minute but they can be cancelled last minute if it's determined to unsafe. Like if snipers were shooting at us. https://t.co/PtmFEbVXla
