USA Today: Islamic State celebrates Donald Trump election victory

Extremists celebrated President–elect Donald Trump’s stunning victory at the polls

According to the U.S.-based SITE Intelligence Group, the al-Minbar Jihadi Media network, which is related to the Islamic State said “Rejoice with support from Allah, and find glad tidings in the imminent demise of America at the hands of Trump,”.

This news was brought to the attention of US citizens by the newspaper USA Today, which published the story with a title “Islamic State celebrates Donald Trump election victory” today.

“Trump’s win of the American presidency will bring hostility of Muslims against America as a result of his reckless actions, which show the overt and hidden hatred against them,” the al- Minbar Jihadi Media network continued.

The newspaper explains that Trump has said he will give his generals 30 days after he takes office to come up with a plan to defeat the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, which has seized swaths of Syria and Iraq.

“I’m going to bomb the s— out of them,” the president-elect said last year.

The Afghan Taliban urged Trump to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan and to “not pursue American interests at the expense of other countries,” SITE reported.

SITE director Rita Katz reported that white supremacists called Trump’s win a “victory for nationalism” and supporters of al-Qaeda and ISIL said his win exposed America’s “hatred of Muslims” and will contribute to the West’s downfall, likening it to Brexit – Britain’s exit from the European Union.

The United Kingdom voted to leave the 28-member bloc at a referendum in June.
