Partly the Hawk vs Dove conflict and partly anti interventionist in Syria

From what I read from Trump supporters. The first one is simply we don't want to start a conflict with a major superpower and get into unnessary wars. Hence they may not like Putin regime they are afraid of antagonising a superpower and be drawn into war where no one will win from the conflict. Hence a dove mentality
Second is the belief that the reason why Isis is a problem is because of US meddling overthrowing secular dictatorship which create a power vacuum which leads to empowered religious fundamentalist to gain power and cause mass problems. Hence they agree with Russia in backing the Assad regime as the lesser of the two evils.
I have no idea whether any of those proposition is right as I'm not an expert in foreign affairs but that's the gist of the argument
