Hey, Americans, vote Trump or face nuclear war! That’s what an ally to Russian President Putin said yesterday to Reuters, and added that Trump is the only person who can ease the tensions between the U.S. and the Kremlin. Flamboyant politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky also said he believes that Hillary Clinton could kick off World War III.
