Former US Defence Secretary Powell backs Hillary Clinton

Senior Republican and former US Secretary of State Colin Powell has announced to vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential elections against Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump.

Powell harshly criticized Trump, saying that he has become a shame for US.

 Although he is a longtime Republican, Powell’s decision to endorse a Democrat is not shocking. He also backed Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012, and in each of those cases made his announcement right around this time of year, in mid- to late-October. Nor is it altogether surprising that he would oppose Trump.

On the other hand, Trump criticized his rival Hillary Clinton saying that due to the Hillary’s conceived foreign policy regarding Syria there could be third World War.

Trump said that the US instead of pressuring Syrian President Assad to resign must concentrate on defeating the terrorist outfit Daesh.
