CLEVELAND (Sputnik) — He added that if Trump becomes president, "we are going to see cooperation with Russia, and once that happens I think we are going to start winning the war on terror."

"I believe that Trump will reduce tensions with Russia," Black said.

In June, Donald Trump said he would be inclined to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to Washington if he became president. He also emphasized how cooperation between the United States and Russia could have led to the destruction of the Islamic State terror group, which is outlawed in both countries.

"[Trump] is willing to cooperate in ways that make some people very nervous," Black explained. "Trump has made it clear that he does not see a reason for all the tension and conflict with Russia, and I agree with that."

The United States is more likely to wind down its conflicts abroad under President Trump, Black asserted.

"I think he is going to bring peace, and I think [Democratic presidential hopeful] Hillary Clinton will double-down on the Neo-conservative approach to making war every place under the sun," he said.

Senator Richard Black recently made headlines when he visited Syria and met with President Bashar Assad.

Tensions between Washington and Moscow erupted in 2014 in the wake of the Ukrainian crisis and reunification of Crimea with Russia.
