The reason the USA would not be in Iraq if Donald Trump was elected President instead of Al Gore, was because Iraq was never a problem with September 11, 2001. The thought of invading a country that had nothing to do with September 11th won't occur.

Al Gore would not have invaded Iraq either. There was no reason to do it.

Iraq's oil is what was coveted. Dick Cheney needed to end the lawsuit filed against him by Halliburton. Halliburton received the contracts and there was no long litigable reason to pursue Cheney.

Imagine that, no Daesh, no instability.

Saddam would have been removed through effort by the UN to stand trial for the deaths of 50 thousand Shia and mass graves of Kurds. But, it would not need a war to extract him to the Hague or simply exile him from Iraq.
