Trump Slammed By ISIS: US 'Being Run By An Idiot'

The United States is “being run by an idiot,” an Islamic State spokesman declared Tuesday, according to Reuters.

“America, you have drowned and there is no savior, and you have become prey for the soldiers of the caliphate in every part of the Earth,” the terror group’s Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer said in an audio he uploaded Tuesday. “You are bankrupt and the signs of your demise are evident to every eye. “There is no more evidence than you (are) being run by an idiot who does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is. Die of spite America, die of spite, a nation where both young and old are racing to die in the name of God will not be defeated.”

Reuters noted that ISIS had not previously attacked Trump, despite his frequent vows on the campaign trail to destroy the militants. In recent weeks, a U.S.-led coalition has claimed victories in its efforts to retake territory from ISIS in the Middle East. Troops are battling the insurgents in Mosul, Iraq; and Raqqa, Syria.

The Daily Mail reported that the day before ISIS posted its anti-U.S. message, the hacking collective called the United Cyber Caliphate unveiled a “kill list” that included Trump. The hackers targeted 8,786 American citizens, according to the SITE Intelligence Group. “Kill them wherever you find them,” stated a UCC video that appeared online during the weekend.

Al-Muhajer began his statement: “We have a message to the people of the U.S. and most importantly your President Trump. Know that we continue to wage war against you. Know that your counterattacks only make us stronger. The UCC will start a new step in this war against you.”

Last year, alleged Afghanistan terrorist Abu Omar Khorasani reacted to Trump’s election victory by telling Reuters that the president-elect was a “complete maniac.” Khorasani predicted that Trump’s anti-ISIS rhetoric would help the group attract followers in the United States and Europe. “His utter hate towards Muslims will make our job much easier because we can recruit thousands,” he said.
