    According to Donald Trump, Clinton's support for regime change in Syria urged Daesh to carry out terrorist attacks in the West.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The decision of former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to support regime change in Syria has urged Daesh to carry out terrorist attacks in the West, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Wednesday.

    "Hillary Clinton’s support for violent regime change in Syria has thrown the country into one of the bloodiest civil wars anyone has ever seen — while giving ISIS [Daesh] a launching pad for terrorism against the West," Trump stated as quoted by Politico.

    The candidate added that the invasion of Libya supported by Clinton has also “handed” the country to Daesh.

    "ISIS [Daesh] threatens us today because of the decisions Hillary Clinton has made," Trump concluded.

    Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad fighting a number of opposition factions and extremist groups, such as Daesh, which is outlawed in many countries, including Russia.
