One way to fire up President Trump is to call for the murder of his 11-year old son, Barron. Pro-Islamic State channels are filled with chatter calling for the child’s assassination. Additionally, ISIS supporters are sharing the child’s personal details across their network.
According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), ISIS supporters shared the name and address of Barron Trump’s school. Terrorists are calling for their backers to find him and kill him. The messages, sent on Tuesday, included a Google Map of the school that President Trump’s son attends.
Additionally, an ISIS supporter who uses the name “Dak Al-Munafiqeen,” Arabic for “striking the hypocrites,” posted a message. Per the Free Beacon, the message reads, “Barron Trump goes to this school in Washington” The post is being shared with the hashtag, “handle the son of the mule of America.”
It’s possible that ISIS is calling for the assassination in response to President Trump calling for the death penalty for Sayfullo Saipov. Saipov drove a rented Home Depot truck down a bicycle path in Manhattan on Halloween. The attack killed eight people and injured dozens of others.
“Would love to send the NYC terrorist to Guantanamo but statistically that process takes much longer than going through the Federal system,” Trump said after the attack. “There is also something appropriate about keeping him in the home of the horrible crime he committed. Should move fast. DEATH PENALTY!”
The threat against Barron comes just days after ISIS pledged Christmas attacks on the Vatican. A picture, posted by the pro-ISIS Wafa Media Foundation, depicts a terrorist driving towards St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. The message at the top of the poster reads, “Christmas Blood.”
SITE Intelligence Group, which routinely monitors the activities of jihadists, is also confirming the talk about Barron. However, access to sensitive details are not available at this time. This is the first time ISIS has threatened the child of the U.S. president.
