    US Presidential candidate Donald Trump expressed hope to improve relations between the United States and Russia, which have deteriorated in recent years.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Unlike most of his Republican rivals, who have criticized Russia over the crisis in Ukraine and the anti-terrorist campaign in Syria, Trump said last September that he would "get along with" Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    "Wouldn’t it be nice if actually we could get along with Russia, we could get along with foreign countries," Trump said during a Republican presidential debate broadcast on the Fox News television channel late on Thursday.

    The United States is holding a presidential election this year. Twelve US states held primaries and caucuses on March 1, known as Super Tuesday.

    Trump, a media and real estate mogul, claimed victories in seven of the 11 states where Republican contests were held.

      Well, for one thing he is not part of the "Wallstreet mafia", so he can´t be really all that bad.

      Dear Mr. Trump, let us hope indeed that you have the courage to go against the wishes of the shadow government, and prove yourself to be warm-blooded and not a puppet. Any sane person knows improving relations with Russia is the right thing to do.

      As things stand, it's either you improve your relations with Russia, or you improve your relations with Al-qaeda/al Nusra. But then again, whoever heard of such a thing as improving relations with terrorists?! Only a demented mind could come up with such a thing!

      Btw, it's nice to know that you carry such hopes. Alas! The word ‘Hope’ has been thrown around very carelessly these many years. Will you prove yourself to be different?

      President Trump is highly likely unpredictable one! Some of his actions would be civilized ones but a few ones would be very scary to the entire world.

      If anyone thinks Trump will be scary, ponder "President Hillary" for 8 years. That should get your heart pounding with real fear.

      The vilification of Donald Trump during the vicious interrogation of the Republican Debate in Detroit was painful to watch, yet in many ways he stood his ground. It reminds me of the neocons vilifying Putin. Trump still won the debate by a huge majority, according to the polls, with support of 65-78% of voters, compared to back-runners Cruz and Rubio, both at single digits. An analysis of Trump's performance and the neocon elite trying to destroy him:
