Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein says Donald Trump is less scary on foreign wars, because he wants to work with Russia.
JILL STEIN: It's important to look at where we are going. It's not just a moment in time, but where has the strategy of voting for the lesser evil taken us?
All these times you have been told to vote for the lesser evil because you didn't want the wars, or the meltdown of the climate, or the offshoring of our jobs, or the attack on immigrants, or the massive bailout for Wall Street, but that is actually what we have gotten. By the droves.
Because we with public interest allow ourselves to be silent, and voted for the lesser evil. But the lesser evil doesn't solve the problem.
[JILL STEIN:] I sure won't sleep well at night if Donald Trump is elected, but I sure won't sleep well at night if Hillary Clinton elected. We have another choice other than these two candidates who are both promoting lethal policies.
On the issue of war and nuclear weapons, it is actually Hillary's policies which are much scarier than Donald Trump who does not want to go to war with Russia.
He wants to seek modes of working together, which is the route that we need to follow not to go into confrontation and nuclear war with Russia.

Keeping her and Johnson out of the debates made sure that the only voice heard in contrast and contradiction to Clinton would be Donald Trump. I feel certain that Jill Stein and Gary Johnson would have so outclassed both major parties' candidates in the debates that there would have been much more to the USA's election than trying to determine which is the lesser of 2 evils.
That said, Jill Stein's warning on Hillary Clinton and nuclear war needs to be taken very seriously as Stein is not merely emoting but she is giving a critique of Clinton's policies and past performance as Secretary of State.
JILL STEIN: It is now Hillary Clinton that wants to start an air war with Russia over Syria by calling for a no fly zone.
We have 2000 nuclear missiles on hairtrigger alert. They are saying we are closer to a nuclear war than we have ever been.
Under Hillary Clinton, we could slide into nuclear war very quickly from her declared policy in Syria.

Did anyone go look up what this dangerous policy of Clinton's would be? I did. There's two parts:
* NO American ground troops.
* Enforce a no-fly zone.
That's it. Period.
Perhaps Dr. Stein can explain more clearly how not allowing American ground troops into Syria and enforcing a no-fly zone with our allies starts a nuclear war.
