ISIS Commander Calls Donald Trump ‘A Complete Maniac’ Whose Presidency Will Make Recruiting A Cinch
Half of the people who voted in the 2016 presidential election are ecstatic with the results, but it isn’t only Americans who are enthusiastic over the reality that Donald J. Trump will be the next President of the United States. ISIS is pretty fucking stoked that Trump will be the next U.S. President.
Abu Omar Khorasani, a top IS commander in Afghanistan, told Reuters that he believes the Trump presidency will work wonders for recruiting.
“This guy is a complete maniac. His utter hate towards Muslims will make our job much easier because we can recruit thousands.”
When a high-ranking leader of the Islamic State, an abhorrent terrorist group that crucified children and put a captured Jordanian pilot in a cage and burned him alive, calls you a “maniac” is that an insult or a compliment?
The Daesh leader is referencing to Trump rhetoric during the campaign trail where he called for a total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States. ISIS believes this will be a perfect propaganda tool that will make recruiting for the jihadist terror group easier.
Rudy Giuliani, who is rumored to be the leading contender to be Secretary of State in the Trump administration, told Jake Tapper that the proposed Muslim ban was changed after the President-elect proposed the policy. Giuliani told CNN that there would be no ban on Muslims, but there would be extreme vetting of immigrants from countries with high levels of radical Islamic extremism.
Trump also said that the U.S. will defeat “radical Islamic terrorism just as we won the Cold War.”
However, without Trump in the picture, terrorist groups such as ISIL, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda have recruited lone wolf attacks in the United States with the deadly onslaughts in Orlando, San Bernadino, and Fort Hood.
