Ex-CIA Director Hayden Says Trump Helping ISIS Recruit Jihadists

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may believe his campaign against Muslims is helping to make America safer, but according to a senior government defense and intelligence, his violent anti- Muslim rhetoric is likely having the opposite effect.

According to former NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden, Trump’s negative campaign against Muslims is only leading to a boost in the recruitment of jihadists. In a recent interview with the Guardian, Hayden argued that Trump is actually doing ISIS a big favor with his proposed “ban on Muslims” in the U.S.

He says that this kind of obvious bigotry against Muslims by an American political leader just confirms the propaganda put out by ISIS that all Westerners hate and want to destroy the Islamic World.
