A new video message released by ISIS explicitly identifies President Donald Trump. On Tuesday, ISIS spokesman Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajir said the United States has “drowned” and is “being run by an idiot.”
It’s been a staple in Trump’s campaign and rhetoric that defeating ISIS would be a top priority for his administration.
A few days after being sworn in as the nation’s 45th president, Trump signed a memorandum to enhance efforts to destroy the terror group.
Following is the full commentary in the video message, which was released via the app, Telegram:
“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. 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.”
Currently, U.S. forces are leading attacks on Mosul in order to reclaim the Iraqi city from the Islamic State.
