Donald Trump's rhetoric about Muslims and Syrian refugees is at the center of a new terrorist recruitment video put out by the Somalian jihadist group al Shabaab. Trump's guest appearance is preceded by an old clip of U.S.-born al Qaeda cleric Anwar al Awlaki warning that the West will 'become the land of 'religious discrimination and concentration camps.' It then cuts to Trump reading his promise to stop Muslim immigration aloud at a campaign rally. 'And so remember this, so listen: Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the [expletive] is going on,' Trump says to a cheering grown. The video cuts again to Awlaki, who was killed by a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2011. 'The West will eventually turn against its Muslim citizens,' he warns.
