This shouldn't be shocking at all really, the US used them for their bidding when they were useful to them, however now that ISIS have been driven out essentially, and with Iraq having essentially regained control of most of their territory, the US felt much less of a reason to continually support them, and will now probably put more funding/support into regimes that actually align more with their own initiatives and interests.

However, I don't really see how the result would have been different with Hillary Clinton as president, I assume she would have done essentially the same.
