AFTER TRUMP: “Rejoice, he will show America’s ugly face,” ISIS TWEETS

daesh-trump-isis“I am optimistic about Trump’s victory because he is a stupid, arrogant, hubristic bull who is dumber than (George W) Bush,” said another.

“Trump’s vulgarity will embarrass (Arab) tyrants and enlarge the field of jihad,” one poster wrote on an Internet chat forum used by IS supporters.


Both candidates, Trump and Clinton, had “committed themselves to the Jewish state and the war on Islam”, the group said in a pre-election English-language article released by its Al-Hayat propaganda arm on social media.

Clinton was “more skilled in ‘political correctness’ giving her leverage in the sorcery of hypocrisy”.

On the other hand, Trump — who has said he wants to “bomb the shit out of them” — was “impulsive and unpredictable”, the article said.

Some IS supporters found the whole idea of celebrating either candidate’s victory scandalous.

“If Trump wins, it’s in our favour,” one wrote on a pro-IS chat group as the results were coming in, prompting condemnation from offended fellow Islamists.

“They’re both tyrants and we just want to cut off their heads,” another user, whose account profile features a scimitar, responded.

Extremists also celebrated news of anti-Trump protests in US cities.

“Praise God, may He increase this,” read one comment about a video apparently showing Trump opponents assaulting a supporter of the president-elect.

“If we can inflame the dissension and troubles in their countries maybe they’ll withdraw” from the self-styled IS caliphate in Iraq and Syria, he wrote.

Al-Qaeda ideologue Abu Mohammed al-Maqdisi, who is based in Jordan, played up the division in American society over Trump’s victory.

“Trump’s rule may be the beginning of a split in the United States and the era of its disintegration,” he wrote on Twitter.
