ISIS has used a 10-year-old American boy to issue a threat to Donald Trump as the group seeks to inspire terror attacks around the world, according to the Independent.
The boy, named in the propaganda video as Yusuf, appeared in footage ISIS claimed was filmed in its de-facto capital of Raqqa, which is surrounded by advancing US-backed forces.
“My message to Trump, the puppet of the Jews,” he said, staring into the camera.
“Allah has promised this victory and he has promised you defeat. This battle is not going to end in Raqqa or Mosul, it is going to end in your lands.
“By the law of Allah we will have victory, so get ready for the fighting has just begun.”
Appearing to be reading from a script, Yusuf said he moved to the so-called Islamic State two years ago from the US with his mother, and claimed his father was an American soldier who had served in Iraq.
He called his home country a state of “non-believers” and claimed ISIS terrorists had “established the rule of Allah”.
