    Russia Versus ISIL in Syria (618)

    Presidential hopeful Donald Trump said that "it would be a positive thing" if Russia could help the United States defeat Daesh.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump expressed hope on Sunday that Russia would help the Unites States defeat Daesh.

    "If we can have a good relationship with Russia, and if Russia would help us get rid of ISIS [Daesh], frankly, as far as I'm concerned, you're talkin' about tremendous amounts of money and lives and everything else. That would be a positive thing, not a negative," Trump told ABC News in an interview.

    Daesh, which is a militant jihadist group outlawed in many countries, including Russia, seized large parts of Syria and Iraq in 2014, putting up to 10 million people under their control, according to various estimates.
