According to a media interview with Reuters, a top Islamic State (IS) commander has expressed delight at the successful elected presidency of Donald Trump.
Abu Omar Khorasani, a commander of IS in Afghanistan, said that Trump’s anti-Muslim campaign messages have driven more anti-US sentiments in their holy war known as jihad.
“This guy is a complete maniac. His utter hate towards Muslims will make our job much easier because we can recruit thousands. Our leaders were closely following the US election but it was unexpected that the Americans will dig their own graves and they did so.”
The IS commander said that compared to Donald Trump, President Obama has a little more brain as a “moderate infidel”.
During the election campaign, Donald Trump has repeatedly said that he will ban Muslims from the Middle East until the US government has a complete solution to vet out who are the extremists and who’s not.
Another terrorist from Taliban Reuters spoke to, said that his forces have been recording each and every speeches of Donald Trump’s 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.”
Many existing enemies and foes of United States responded positively to Donald Trump’s win, including countries that were previously distrustful of Obama’s administration. China and Russia delivered congratulatory notes, with President Vladimir Putin giving Donald Trump a personal phone call over mending US-Russia ties which have soured under Obama.
According to the Russian state office, US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will cooperate to find a common solution to settle the civil war in Syria, and also to explore greater economic cooperation. China’s supreme leader Xi Jin Ping has also given Donald Trump a personal call and called for bilateral cooperation. It is believed that Donald Trump is scrapping the Trans-Pacific Pact (TPP) to deal directly with China, without the need of third-party countries like Singapore which have trade pact to the two superpowers.
