Daesh and Taliban recruiters welcome Trump's White House win

Taliban commanders and Daesh supporters say Trump's campaign trail rhetoric against Muslims - at one point calling for a total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States - will play into their recruitment efforts perfectly, especially when it comes to signing up disaffected youth in the West.

Trump has talked tough against militant groups on the campaign trail, promising to defeat "radical Islamic terrorism just as we won the Cold War."

The president-elect later toned down his call for a total ban on Muslim entry to say he would temporarily suspend immigration from countries that have "a history of exporting terrorism."

But he has offered few details on his plans to combat various radical groups, including Daesh (ISIS), the Taliban and al Qaeda, which represent a wide spectrum of political views.
"He does not differentiate between extremist and moderate Islamist trends and, at the same time, he overlooks (the fact) that his extremism will generate extremism in return," Iraq's powerful Shi'ite Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr said in a statement.

Sadr's political reform movement, which commands thousands of followers, is a staunch opponent of the radical takfiri Wahhabi Daesh (IS) and al Qaeda, and unlike them has not waged or promoted attacks in the West.
"Our leaders were closely following the US election but it was unexpected that the Americans will dig their own graves and they did so," said IS's Khorasani, who described President Barack Obama as a moderate infidel with at least a little brain in comparison to Trump.
Al Qaeda, which has proven resilient more than 15 years after launching the September 11 attacks on New York and the Pentagon, has yet to comment on Trump's victory.

The militant group will likely respond after Trump's first speeches as president, anticipating they will be able to exploit his comments to win support, said Hisham al Hashemi, who advises the Iraqi government on militants.

"Al Qaeda is known for its recruitment strategy that heavily quotes speeches of the White House and other Western officials," he said.
Propaganda machine

Trump's office did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the statements from the militants.

Even if Trump tones down his anti-Muslim comments when he takes office in January, analysts say his statements during the campaign trail were enough to fuel the militants' propaganda machine.

"Militants will still use those quotes," said Matthew Henman, head of IHS Jane's Terrorism and Insurgency Centre.

"This guy is a complete maniac. His utter hate towards Muslims will make our job much easier because we can recruit thousands," Abu Omar Khorasani, a top Daesh commander in Afghanistan, said
