    Donald Trump said the United States could team up with Russia to crush Daesh together.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) — Russia can assist the United States in the fight against the Daesh terror group, US President-elect Donald Trump told reporters during a press conference in New York City on Wednesday.

    "Russia can help us fight ISIS [Daesh], which by the way is number one tricky, I mean if you look, this [Obama] administration created ISIS by leaving at the wrong time," Trump stated. "The void was created, ISIS was formed."
