Al-Shabab uses Trump video for recruitment




Somali militant group al-Shabaab has released a new recruitment video.

The video targets African-Americans and Muslims living in the United States, and, disturbingly, uses a video of American presidential candidate Donald Trump to try and depict the US as a racist society.

Trump has had a very controversial campaign. One of his most inflammatory comments was when he called for a complete ban on Muslims entering the United States.

Previously, Hillary Clinton has warned that extremist groups would use Trump’s rhetoric as a means to try and recruit more fighters. Trump dismissed that claim.
