U.S. Democrats candidate for presidency delivered speech against her opponent Donald Trump and the Russian leader

'Just yesterday, one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, a man named Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum to have Britain leave the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi. Farage has called for a bar on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and health services, has said women are and I quote “worth less” than men, and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race -- that’s who Donald Trump wants by his side when he is addressing an audience of American voters', Hillary Clinton, the Democrats candidate for U.S. presidency, said during her speech in Reno, Nevada, reports.

'And the grand godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is Russian President Vladimir Putin’, she said. ‘In fact, Farage regularly appears on Russian propaganda programs. Now he’s standing on the same stage as the Republican nominee. Trump himself heaps praise on Putin and embraces pro-Russian policies. He talks casually of abandoning our NATO allies, recognizing Russia’s annexation of Crimea, and of giving the Kremlin a free hand in Eastern Europe more generally'.

'American presidents from Truman to Reagan have rejected the kind of approach Trump is taking on Russia. We should, too', Clinton concluded.
