Anonymous Declares War On Donald Trump — #OpTrump

Anonymous Declares War On Donald Trump

After targeting the Islamic State (ISIS) group in the wake of Deadly terror attacks in Paris, hacktivist group Anonymous has now turned its attention to controversial US presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The hacktivist group has declared war against Donald Trump following his recent radical speech stating he wanted to ban Muslims from entering the United States.

Anonymous vs. Donald Trump

On Wednesday, Anonymous slams Trump by posting a YouTube video in which a man in a Guy Fawkes mask says:

“Donald Trump, it has come to our attention that you wish to ban all muslims from entering the United States. Muslims and Islam are not the problem. This policy will have grave impact and will serve only to fuel the emotions that ISIS uses to recruit muslims. Certainly ISIS will use this to their advantage in their social media campaigns. Instead of focusing on the innocent, the focus should be set on ways to protect them from the radicalized individuals they flee. Donald Trump, think twice before you speak. This policy is one that cannot be accepted. Denying people of opportunity to escape hardship is not a solution of a future world leader. If anything, this solution will only bear more conflict. We cannot sit idle with the possibilty of detrimental consequences. Should this policy be pursued any further, we will have no choice but to take action.”

Anonymous Takes Down Donald Trump Website

Moreover, the group started #OpTrump hacking campaign against Donald Trump on Wednesday night and took down the website for New York City’s Trump Towers (www.trumptowerny.com) by hitting it withDistributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks.

The website was reportedly down for hours. However, it appears to be operational now.
While the online hacktivist group has yet to officially claim responsibility for the DDOS attack on Trump’s website, Twitter users showed their full support to Anonymous and its #OpTrump campaign.

This is not the first time the group has targeted Trump. Few months ago, Anonymous broke into Trump.com in an effort to deliver Jon Stewart a message as he was about to leave The Daily Show.

As we await Anonymous’s next move, the group has already declared Friday to be a day to troll ISIS, urging Twitter users to troll ISIS using the #Daeshbags hashtag.
