Donald Trump Says US Should Be Fighting ISIS With Russia

Donald Trump said he “disagreed” with his vice presidential pick Mike Pence over US intervention against the Syrian government.

Trumps running mate had called for bombing Syrian government targets, but the GOP nominee said that instead, the US should work together with Russia against ISIS.

RT reports:

“He and I haven’t spoken and I disagree,” Trump said during Sunday’s presidential debate, when asked whether he agreed with Pence’s calls for bombing Syria.

During the presidential debates on Tuesday Pence had said that the US should be ready to strike the Syrian army if Russia continues to be involved in what he called“barbaric actions” in Aleppo.

Both Trump and Clinton were asked what would they do about the situation in Aleppo, which the question – asked via Facebook – compared to the Holocaust.

Clinton blamed the situation in Aleppo on the Syrian government and Russia, accusing Moscow of not paying “any attention to ISIS” but only being “interested in keeping Assad in charge.”

“We need some leverage with he Russians because they’re not going to come to the negotiation table without leverage,” Clinton said, repeating her calls for establishing a no-fly zone and arming the Kurds, but acknowledging that sending US troops on the ground would not work.

“I would not use American ground forces in Syria, I think that would be a very serious mistake,” Clinton said.

“She talks rebels, but she doesn’t know who the rebels are.” Trump replied. “Almost everything she’s done in foreign policy, it’s been a mistake and it’s been a disaster.”

Trump took issue with Clinton’s claim that Russia was not fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

“Assad is killing ISIS. Russia is killing ISIS. Iran is killing ISIS. And those three have now lined up together because of our weak policy,” he said.

“I think it would be great if we got along with Russia. We could fight ISIS together,” Trump had said earlier in the evening.

What would happen if Aleppo falls, asked ABC’s Martha Raddatz.

“Aleppo… I think that it basically has fallen,” Trump replied.

The Republican nominee also repeated his criticism of the US military announcing an attack on IS in Mosul, thus sacrificing the element of surprise, ending with declaring that “Generals George Patton and Douglas McArthur are spinning in their graves at our stupidity in the Middle East.”

    I agree with Trump “US should work together with Russia against ISIS” because our goal is mutual and even leads to cordial relationships with each other. This is the opposite what is happening right now, where Russia has become our enemy & WW3 is threatened. What is Obama & John Kerry doing to our great country ? Looking to kill us all & ruin the world ?
    VOTE for Trump, because Killary loves war & will be the first to order to push the button (NWO lover)

    The enemy of this country when it was being founded, hated the roll Russia play in the revolutionary war.. When the Tsar of Russia heard that the colonies where going war with England the Tsar said- You are going to revolt against England, that’s sensational, its about time you took your land and decided to become a free people- I love it! As a matter of fact, we’ll come help you if you want- Anyone who stands up against those bunch of cut-throat murdering British Royalty We’ll Help! So the Tsar Help Americans, Then latter the Tsar help Lincoln and so on.. The Tsar had also blocked a plan set up by Rothschild- look it up. So the powerful people in the world were not at all pleased with Russia.. The Tsar was also one of the richest families in the world and that drives the other families nuts- they can’t stand seeing other people with more money than them, they can’t get over it, it keeps them up at night. so when the opportunity came Rothschild went to king George the 5th and said we want to steal the Tsar dough- and George the 5th said, I’m game. So through Jacob Schiff and the banks in New York that’s what they did, and murdered the Tsar and his whole family and set up the Russian Revolution and the money went to Kuhn-Loeb and others and some of the money actually was used to buy the bonds for the Federal Reserve.. After that came the Bolsheviks, Leninist and Stalin and so on, millions and millions of Russians died. Russia is different now and is well aware of the history and has kicked the Rothschild out and the things the powerful people hate etc. That’s the long and short of it why the US is always bitching about Russians under the bed..
