Washington : Warning of catastrophic consequences if Hillary Clinton was elected as President, Donald Trump has asserted that her policies as president to address the Syrian conflict would lead to World War III, further stating that the Democratic nominee would draw the United States into armed confrontation with Russia, Syria and Iran, reports ANI.

“What we should do is focus on ISIS. We should not be focusing on Syria. You’re going to end up in World War III over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton. You’re not fighting Syria anymore, you’re fighting Syria, Russia and Iran, all right? Russia is a nuclear country, but a country where the nukes work as opposed to other countries that talk,” Trump told news agencies in an interview, reports CNN.

However, Trump himself has not laid out a clear strategy for combating ISIS or addressing the globally destabilizing conflict in Syria, which has killed hundreds of thousands and pushed millions more to flee their homes. But he has focused on joining forces with Russia which has aided the Syrian regime in the bombing of civilians and US-allied rebels to combat ISIS.

Powell snubs Trump, says will vote for Hillary

Snubbing his Republican colleague and presidential nominee Donald Trump, former secretary of state Colin Powell said that he would instead vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, reports PTI.

 With this Clinton has earned the rare endorsement of a top Republican leader.

Powell had served in the administration of President Ronald Reagan and was secretary of state in George W Bush’s first term as president. Powell’s announcement that he would vote for Clinton and not Trump came during a Long Island group luncheon.
