U.S. will end up in World War III if Clinton is elected: Trump

Washington D.C.,[US] Oct. 26 : 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.

"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.
