"Now Hillary wants to start a shooting war in Syria, conflict with a nuclear power — Russia — which could very well lead to World War III," Trump told his cheering supporters in Springfield, Ohio. "The way she talks about (Russian President, Vladimir) Putin. She's always said she has no idea, but she's always saying — WikiLeak, it's Russia, and Donald Trump — I have nothing to do with Russia. She said may be Donald Trump is involved in projects with the Russians. The answer's no," he said.

"Look, look, she speaks so badly of Putin, nuclear country, she speaks so badly, and she uses it to keep trying to get votes. I said to myself you know, how do you speak so badly of somebody, I mean how are they going to ever get along? Wouldn't it be great if we actually got along with Russia and other countries?" he told his supporters amidst applause.

"We together went after IS and knocked the hell out of them? Wouldn't that be a good thing?" he said indicating that he would collaborate with Russia to defeat IS.

A Trump Administration, he said will change America's foreign policy. "Hillary Clinton's policies in Iraq, Syria, Libya threw the Middle East into total turmoil. We're spending USD6 trillion on wars in the Middle East while our own country falls into total disrepair," he said. Trump said as part of his plan to bring back American jobs he will lower taxes on businesses from 35 per cent down to 15 per cent.
