A video reportedly released by the Islamic State (ISIS) which claims responsibility for the terrorist attack in Brussels on March 22nd, features Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The bombastic hotel magnate is now starring in a pro-ISIS propaganda film by the group Al Battar. Trump is seen in the video calling Brussels a “horror show” after the attacks which ISIS has claimed credit for.
“Brussels was one of the great cities, one of the most beautiful cities of the world 20 years ago, and it was amazing actually and safe, and now it’s a horror show, it’s an absolute horror show,” Trump says in the video titled “Brussels Attacks.”
The video then plays a song, repeating the lyrics: “Brothers rise up, claim your victory, let’s go for jihad.”

Terrorism expert Malcolm Nance, the head of the Terrorism Asymmetrics Project and a veteran of Navy intelligence, said just this week that the GOP front-runner is doing the propaganda work for ISIS.
“Good God, they’re probably cutting videos of this right now,” Nance said on MSNBC regarding Trump’s comments.
“Donald Trump right now is validating the cartoonish view that they tell their operatives…that America is a racist nation, xenophobic, anti-Muslim, and that that’s why you must carry out terrorist attacks against them…It’s irresponsible and it needs to stop,” Nance added.
In January, Trump was featured in a recruitment video from the terrorist group Al-Shabab. As a shock to no one ever, Trump’s ‘ban Muslims’ proposal was given a prominent role in that video.
Donald Trump’s recent and past remarks touting torture, and even going beyond that, proves to our enemies that we aren’t a civilized society. Who saw this coming? Besides everyone, I mean. Of course, Conservatives voting for Trump will see this as a good thing somehow.
