Reuters News Service has intercepted a new message from the propaganda wing of the Islamic State. At first glance, you would think that the message was in fact sent by the Democrat Party. In the new message sent out on the messaging app “Telegram”, the group’s first message targeting President Trump said: “the U.S. has “drowned” and the country is “being run by an idiot.””
Reuters reported the message goes on to say: “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, you are bankrupt and the signs of your demise are evident to every eye,” Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer, a spokesman for the terror group said.
“There is no more evidence than the fact that you are being run by an idiot who does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is,” he added.
Trump said during his presidential campaign that defeating ISIS was a priority and since he took office, he has dramatically increased the number of air strikes against the terrorist group. Ther President signed a memorandum just days into his presidency focusing on strengthening efforts to defeat the terror group. In addition, this past weekend it was announced that 200 combat troops had been dispatched to area around the Syrian stronghold of the terrorist state. These troops are in addition to the U.S.-led coalition which is currently fighting to retake Mosul from the Islamic State in Iraq and Raqqa, the terror group’s de facto capital, in Syria. Both losses would deal a major blow to the militant group. U.S. and Iraqi officials are preparing for smaller skirmishes around Mosul as coalition forces attempt to recapture the city.
The White House was unavailable for comment on the ISIS statement.
