Clinton claimed Sunday that foreign leaders were ready to openly endorse her candidacy to stop her Republican rival Donald Trump from winning.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton claimed Sunday that foreign leaders were ready to openly endorse her candidacy to stop her Republican rival Donald Trump from winning the presidential race.

"I am having foreign leaders ask if they can endorse me to stop Donald Trump," Clinton said at a televised event hosted by CNN in Columbus, Ohio.

The former Secretary of State declined to name any dignitaries, the US broadcaster said, although Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi previously supported her publicly.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who made an appearance together with Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, accused Trump of "inciting violence with his supporters."

The controversial US billionaire businessman said earlier he was ready to pay legal fees of the man who punched an anti-Trump protester in the face at the GOP candidate’s campaign rally in North Carolina.

"That is an outrage, and I would hope that Mr. Trump tones it down big time, and tells his supporters that violence is not acceptable in the American political process," Sanders said, as quoted by CNN.

Clinton and Sanders were speaking at CNN Town Hall on Sunday night ahead of Tuesday’s primaries.

    so they all want to join the assassination team hillary is organising to get rid of him. any self respecting politician (if there is such a thing) looking at the american options would come to the same conclusion as it appears MOST of the american people. Trump is the pick of them
  • Glamoureus
    OH Come on Hillary, thats BULLYING.

    And which World leaders would that be? None elected in EU (yes they are actually not elected), or is it Russia? Or African leaders? Maybe Saudi or Turks?
  • Thats interesting, WHO are these brainless world neocon fanatics that support this witch??? Only the the likes of Rothschilds and Rockefellers. It would only be those that back and support it, for there wars, support and funding of terrorist groups, financial manipulation, regime changing, destruction of countries sovereignty, blackmails, death threats, chemical and bio wars, surveillance and on and on!!! You only have to look at this thing with her previous UNpolitical history to seen what a abomination it is and what it will mean for the rest of the world!!! It will be over for everyone if she get that seat!!!

    I believe her hatred for Trump is obvious and the first question that should enter a thinking person's head is why does this foul woman hate Trump so much?

    The second question should be, who are these world leaders that would project their own opinions onto a political race that they have no control over let alone can vote in?

    The third question should be, what have all those who wish Trump dead got to hide from the rest of us - what is it that Trump is saying he will do that those who reject him wish not for him to disclose?

    Heaven forbid, someone would try to assassinate Trump, it will ignite a civil war in America -- the people will not stand for this.

    Hillary Clinton is an evil woman who will do any and everything to get elected, and she will start WWIII, the world as we know it, will be a wasteland for millennia to come.

    terryjohnodgers, Don't believe a word she is saying, she is liar just like the present occupant in the WH. Obama took the gold for lying--he lies without any shame.

    tonyw247, I just left a comment on the consequences of someone trying to assassinate Trump -- and it will be civil war, the people are fed-up with the current politicians who lined their pockets and the people are living paycheck to paycheck. Hillary as the rest of the candidates just want to make war, Trump is the only one that will stop that trend and that is why the witch-hunt is in full steam to stop him.
  • Elsa JVin reply toZhukov(Show commentHide comment)
    Zhukov, I second that.
  • Elsa JVin reply toMarc Nonnenkamp(Show commentHide comment)
    Marc Nonnenkamp, I agree because he will stop wasting money and start to rebuild this country that is falling apart while the government is embroiled in one war after another.

    dvdgrg09, Clinton is just evil.
  • Elsa JV
    Just remember she laughed when Mohammar Ghadafi was killed and dragged through the streets -- she is an evil woman.

    "We came, we saw, he died" . . .

    Who are these "foreign leaders" who are supporting Hillary Clinton?
    If she cannot name them, then she is probably lying.
    What foreign leader would ever support Hillary Clinton?
  • siberianhuskyin reply totonyw247(Show commentHide comment)
    tonyw247,
    Hilarious Hillary has left quite a trail of dead people behind her in her lifetime.
    Perhaps it would be smarter if she kept quiet and don't have people looking closets.
  • tonyw247
    well..one could stop paying the protesters to incite violence just as was done in Ukraine and a substantial number of other places ...too many to keep track of
  • terryjohnodgersin reply toElsa JV(Show commentHide comment)
    Elsa JV, I don't. My questions are for those who are still learning about what is now at stake.
  • seanrkearney
    Of course the so called world leaders want Trump to lose because he's not a member of the neo con "fakers club".
  • anything that comes out of her mouth is a lie !

  • Mayoh
    Well, what is a face YOU BEATCH CLINTON.... You are NOT going to be President.... that is a FACT!!!
  • citizen
    She's lying. Any leader supporting her isn't acting in their own best interest, or that of the rest of the world. The Clinton/Bush mafia is anti-Trump because he's not part of their mafia that has caused so much damage and deaths worldwide.
