WASHINGTON DC: 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.  

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.

Clinton has called for establishing a no-fly zone over Syria to help bring the five-year civil war to an end, and addressing those concerns in the final presidential debate, she argued that it would "save lives and hasten the end of the conflict," while cautioning that "this would not be done just on the first day."
