Donald Trump to hold town hall meeting in Scranton, Pa.

SCRANTON, Pa. (WPVI) -- As the Democratic National Convention continues in Philadelphia, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will make a campaign appearance a short distance away, in Scranton.

Trump will hold a town hall meeting at Lackawanna College Wednesday afternoon.

Wednesday morning he spoke in Doral, Florida at one of his golf courses.

The GOP candidate has been criticizing the Democrats for not talking specifically about ISIS during the DNC.

Trump is also dismissing claims made by Democrats that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee emails to benefit Trump's campaign.

Responding to questions over whether Russia's President Vladimir Putin might favor a Trump presidency, Trump told reporters he "never met Putin, I don't know who Putin is."

The Republican presidential nominee said the incident with the hacked emails demonstrates that Putin and other world leaders no longer respect the United States.

He said he's never spoken to Putin and knows nothing about him "except that he'll respect me."

He said that it may not even be Russia behind the email breach and suggested China may be the culprit.

The emails revealed that DNC officials favored Hillary Clinton over her rival Bernie Sanders. The revelation that led to the resignation of the DNC chief, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
