Clinton to Trump: My military endorsements are bigger than yours

Trump's interview surfaced as he and Clinton continue to clash over foreign policy in the run-up to the November 8 presidential election.

As Clinton voiced staunch support for Obama's call to strengthen United Nations sanctions against the country, the Trump campaign had a different message: Clinton and Obama are not strong leaders. After Trump touted 88 retired military figures backing his campaign earlier this week, Clinton's campaign has sought to keep the upper hand, noting her growing list of endorsements.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was featured on the TV program Politicking with Larry King on the Russian government-funded television network Russia Today (RT).

The Trump campaign said on Friday that Mr Trump had done the interview only as a favour to Mr King, an old friend.

"That is what's happened to this country".

However Clinton and Trump did not come face to face at the forum as they were grilled back-to-back by the anchor.

Clinton received a question about using a personal e-mail server while she holds the position of Secretary of State and the way she handled classified information.

"That is a gift for ISIS and that is what Matt Olsen, who knows more about this than the Republicans trying to somehow muddy the waters, very clearly stated", she said. Asked if he would be prepared on Day One to be commander in chief, Trump said: "One hundred percent". "And I think I would have a very, very good relationship with Russia", Trump said at a "commander in chief" forum on the decommissioned USS Intrepid, now a floating museum, here yesterday.

"The man has very strong control over a country", said Trump.

"I did exactly what I should have done and I take it very seriously, always have, always will", she said.Trump's praise of Putin and his suggestion that the United States and Russian Federation form an alliance to defeat Islamic State militants could raise eyebrows among foreign policy experts who feel Moscow is interfering with efforts to stem the Syrian civil war.

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Thursday challenged Republicans to respond to Trump's comments lauding Putin. Hillary Clinton pledged the withdrawal of USA ground troops from Iraq, that the US would not "put ground troops into Syria".

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): Did they not tell you? Clinton, many Democrats and even some in his own Republican party balked. At a speech in Cleveland, he tagged his Democratic opponent with a new nickname - "trigger-happy Hillary" and repeated his incorrect claim that he opposed the war in Iraq "from the beginning".
