Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday said that Hillary Clinton's policy plan for Syria could result in a Third World War. The billionaire also said that the United States' emphasis should be defeating ISIS in the war-ravaged regions, instead of attempting to remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
"You're going to end up in World War Three 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 said.
The former US Secretary of State, in her plans for Syria, has proposed a no-fly zone in the region. Russian jets frequently conduct airstrikes in the region to battle Syrian rebels, and considering this, the top US military chief has also said that Clinton's plan could cause a conflict with Russia.
Trump has repeatedly made admiring remarks about Russian President Vladimir Putin, ignoring the rising tensions between the US and Russia. He had also announced a week ago that he would like to meet Putin before taking the presidential oath if he wins the US elections.
The Republican nominee added that after Clinton's heavy criticism of the Russian President, it would be difficult for her to hold talks with him. "How she is going to go back and negotiate with this man who she has made to be so evil," Trump said.
The Republican candidate also attacked the Republican Party for not uniting and backing his presidential candidacy.
"If we had party unity, we couldn't lose this election to Hillary Clinton," Trump was quoted as saying by Reuters.
Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton are the final nominees for the US presidential elections on November 8.
