President-elect Donald Trump has been called "a complete maniac" by a top Isis commander in Afghanistan. The Isis commander went on to say that his "utter hate towards Muslims" will make it "much easier" to recruit thousands of more supporters for Isis.
After the Paris attacks in 2015, Trump had stated that Muslims should be temporarily banned from the country until they figured out "what the hell was going on". Trump has always said that the safety of Americans was paramount and it was not about religious discrimination. Now that he is the President-Elect, he said that he would suspend immigration from countries which have "a history of exporting terrorism."
Abu Omar Khorasani, a top Isis commander in Afghanistan, told Reuters, "This guy is a complete maniac. His utter hate towards Muslims will make our job much easier because we can recruit thousands."
He added, "Our leaders were closely following the US election but it was unexpected that the Americans will dig their own graves and they did so." According to him, Obama was moderate infidel with slightly more intelligence than Trump.
According to a senior Taliban commander in Afghanistan, the group had kept a track of Donald Trump's speeches and anti-Muslim comments. "If he does what he warned in his election campaign, I am sure it will provoke Muslim Ummah (community) across the world and jihadi organisations can exploit it."
But Hisham al Hashemi, an adviser to the Iraqi government on Sunni jihadist movements, stated to Reuters that "Al Qaeda is known for its recruitment strategy that heavily quotes speeches of the White House and other Western officials."
Meanwhile, Iraq's Shia Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr said in a statement, "Donald Trump does not differentiate between extremist and moderate Islamist trends and, at the same time, he overlooks (the fact) that his extremism will generate extremism in return."
