WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Sending ground troops to fight against the Daesh is not a possibility under a Hillary Clinton administration, the Democratic presidential candidate said at a rally in Scranton, Pennsylvania on Monday.
"Donald's [Trump] been all over the place on ISIS [Islamic State]… he's talked about sending ground troops, American ground troops," Clinton stated. "Well, that is off the table as far as I am concerned.
Her Republican rival Donald Trump has harshly criticized Clinton’s foreign policy of military interventions and subverting legitimate governments such as in Libya and Syria, as disastrous, leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths and significant material destruction.
Moreover, Trump has criticized Clinton and President Barack Obama as effectively being the creators of the Islamic State terror group, which sprung after the vacuum created by the US interventionist foreign policy.
A US-led coalition of more than 60 nations has been conducting airstrikes against the Daesh in Syria and Iraq since the summer of 2014.
The terror group Daesh is outlawed in Russia and numerous other countries.
