Al Qaeda’s bend in Somalia expelled a recruitment video on Friday that criticized injustice and anti-Muslim view in a United States and contained footage of a Republican presidential claimant Donald J. Trump announcing his offer to bar Muslims from entering a United States.

The video, expelled by a belligerent organisation Shabab, seemed to be a initial time that Mr. Trump was featured in jihadist recruitment material. During a Democratic presidential discuss final month, Hillary Clinton pronounced that Mr. Trump had been used in a recruitment video for a Islamic State, a explain that was after debunked.

Al Qaeda and a Islamic State are opposition jihadist groups that contest for recruits and income among radicalized Muslims.

Representatives for a Trump discuss did not respond to requests for criticism on Friday.

The video was partial of a array dedicated to Somali-American jihadists from Minnesota and one Canadian who died on a terrain in Somalia. The video was real by a SITE Intelligence Group, that studies jihadist propaganda, and it seemed to be directed during a African-American community.

Citing “historical injustices” opposite African-Americans, including military savagery and secular profiling, a video urged them to modify to Islam and rivet in jihad during home or abroad.

Using footage of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American member of a Qaeda associate who was killed in an American worker conflict in 2011, a video also pronounced a United States was gripped by a “malignant hatred” of Islam. It warned American Muslims that “there are meaningful clouds entertainment in your horizon.”

The video includes footage of Mr. Trump in front of a print temperament his discuss slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

“So remember this, so listen, Donald J. Trump is job for a sum and finish shutdown of Muslims entering a United States until a country’s member can figure out what a ruin is going on,” Mr. Trump said.
