A top ISIS commander has branded Donald Trump a ‘complete maniac’.
We wouldn’t expect any member of Daesh to give a democratically elected a ringing endorsement, but this is something else.
Abu Omar Khorasani said:
‘This guy is a complete maniac. His utter hate towards Muslims will make our job much easier because we can recruit thousands.’
‘Our leaders were closely following the U.S. election but it was unexpected that the Americans will dig their own graves and they did so.’
And showing that he has some respect for President Barack Obama, he said he was a moderate infidel with at least a little brain in comparison to Trump.
His thoughts echo those of the Taliban who say Trump’s campaign trail rhetoric against Muslims (including THAT idea to close the borders to them) plays perfectly for them. It makes recruitment that much easier, particularly for disaffected youth in the West.
Trump has talked tough against militant groups on the campaign trail, promising to defeat ‘radical Islamic terrorism just as we won the Cold War.’
The president-elect later toned down his call for a total ban on Muslim entry to say he would temporarily suspend immigration from countries that have ‘a history of exporting terrorism.’
