US being run by an idiot

The terror group ISIS in new audio released Tuesday called President Donald Trump an Arabic term that means "idiot" and said he doesn't know anything about Islam, according to various translations.

But, Business Insider points out, ISIS commonly targets USA presidents with its propaganda, using Obama-centric messaging to promote its ideas and goals as well.

"America, you have drowned, and there is no savior", Islamic State spokesman Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer said in a recording posted on the Telegraph messaging network.

Trump has pledged to "totally obliterate ISIS", and the White House in January had said the Trump adminstration is taking decisive steps to "defeat and destroy" the Islamic State.

US-powered forces are trying to reclaim the Islamic State's two biggest hubs, Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria.

Trump has placed fighting IS as a priority of his administration's agenda, recently issuing a presidential memorandum that instructed the government to "develop a comprehensive plan to defeat IS".

The United Nations said on Tuesday it was expanding camps for people fleeing Mosul, as air strikes resumed on Islamic State positions in Iraq's second largest city.

Last year Iraqi military forces, supported by the coalition, waged successful battles to oust IS from a string of cities in the run-up to the Mosul fight.

The statement was released just one day after Trump topped a "kill-list" released by a pro-ISIS hacker group. The group's previous spokesperson Abu Muhammad al-Adnani was killed in an USA airstrike in Syria a year ago, the Pentagon had said. Some local media recalled that during the war in the east, and after breaking into the campus of the University of Mosul, Iraqi generals stated that they had evidenced that IE was using several labs at such a university for chemical weapons production. The UCC will start a new step in this war against you. Among those killed were commanders in charge of booby traps, of Arab suicide fighters and child recruitment, the statement added, without identifying them by name.

"This guy is a complete maniac", Khorasani told Reuters.
