Somali militant group al Shabaab uses Donald Trump in video to recruit new US followers



Donald Trump has continued to dominate the airwaves in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination — but the GOP frontrunner might not be thrilled with the latest outlet to publicize his controversial speech calling for a ban on Muslims entering the US.


The Somali militant group al Shabaab used footage from Trump's speech in documentary-style video aimed at recruiting American Muslims to their cause.
Trump's appearance in the 51-minute video released on Friday is preceded by old clips of Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical US-born cleric and prominent al Qaeda figurehead who was killed by a US drone strike in Yemen in 2011. "There are ominous clouds gathering in your horizon," al-Awlaki warns American Muslims.
