US Republican presidential nominee DONALD TRUMP has showered the President of Russia, VLADIMIR PUTIN with praise as he and rival HILLARY CLINTON took pointed questions from military veterans.
TRUMP told the forum the Russian president “has been a leader far more than US President, BARACK OBAMA has been”.
It came on the same day the Chief of the Pentagon accused Russia of sowing the seeds of global instability.
Meanwhile, Mrs CLINTON defended her judgment despite her email scandal.
The White House candidates appeared back to back on stage in half-hour segments at the Intrepid Air and Sea Museum in New York yesterday night.
