Al-Shabaab uses republican presidential candidate Donald Trump footage for a recruitment video

The terrorist group Al-Shabaab released a video featuring United States Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

 

The roughly fifty one minute video, “The Path to Paradise” which encourages young African Americans in the US to convert to Islam and join the terror organization includes a clip of Trump calling for a “shutdown” to Muslims entering the United States.

 

Video footage show Trump saying, “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the bleep is going on”. The terrorist group bleeped out the word “hell”.

 

Footage proceeds to show old clips taken from American born terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki discussing the west turning on Muslims and racism in the US.

 

On December 19 during the Democratic debate Hillary Clinton said about Trump, “He is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter. They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists”.

 

Until the release of this video footage by the Al Qaeda affiliate group in Somalia, no such video created by the Islamic State group or any other terrorist organization featuring Donald Trump existed.
