New Delhi, Jan 21: During his swearing-in ceremony speech on Friday, the 45th US President Donald Trump sent a strong warning to the dreaded terrorist group--Islamic State. As a part of his 'top' foreign policy goal, Trump (70) wants to 'defeat' Islamic terrorism from its roots.
Minutes after the presidential address, several social media groups--having IS and al-Qaeda affiliations--decided to react to Trump's 'cautionary note'.
In fact, it was Rita Katz, executive director and founder of SITE Intelligence Group, a non-governmental counterterrorism organisation based in Maryland, US, who brought to notice about what these pro-terrorist groups had to say about Trump's 'warning'.
"Both the AQ and the IS supporters calling Trump's vow to eradicate Islamic terrorism as more fuel to the West's war against Islam," tweeted Katz.
She added that online supporters of terrorism stated that the IS was prepared to turn Trump's hair 'grey'.
The reaction from pro-IS and AQ groups indicate that terrorists want to give the new American president some tough time. However, they didn't reveal anything about their plans to cause worries to the Trump's administration.
Trump has always maintained a tough stand against Islamic terrorism. Earlier, he said that he would bomb the s**** out of the IS.
The IS, on its part looks desperate, after it has lost nearly a quarter of its territory in Iraq and Syria last year.
While the shrinking of the IS' primary territorial base is a good news, there is also a likelihood of rise in attacks in various European cities, orchestrated by the terrorist outfit.
Of late, the IS, on several occasions said that the group has plans to attack various European and American cities. The Paris and Nice attacks are examples of the IS' plans to kill people across the West.
According to figures, since the IS declared its plans to create its own Caliphate, the terrorist organisation has conducted and inspired more than 140 attacks in 29 countries, other than in Iraq and Syria. According to CNN, these attacks have claimed at least 2,043 lives.
