The world renown hacker group Anonymous has declared a “total war” on Donald Trump with the release of a new video campaigning support against the U.S. presidential candidate and urging “anyone with a computer” to join the anti-Trump campaign.
In the video, which was released on March 4, Anonymous refers to the movement as #OpTrump and aims to sabotage his campaign for president and his overall brand. He states that Trump’s words and actions are “deeply disturbing” and refers to his campaign as “hateful” declaring a cyber war against him.
Your inconsistent and hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States of America, you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideas. You don’t stand for anything except for your personal greed and power. This is a call to arms.
The Mirror reports that the man in the video, disguised with a mask and robotic voice, goes on to announce the group’s plans to attack Trump by targeting his official website trumpchicago.com on April 1 and threatens Trump by declaring that their actions are not a warning but “total war.”
This is not a warning. This is a declaration of total war. Operation Trump engaged. We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forgive. We will not forget. Donald Trump, it is too late to expect us
According to Voice of America, this is not the first time Anonymous has attacked Trump. Amidst Trump’s call for a ban on Muslims entering the United States last December, the hackers crashed the Trump Tower New York website and reportedly leaked voicemails to a major newspaper.
Whether this renewed effort by Anonymous will have a greater impact on Trump and his campaign for the U.S. presidential elections is unclear. Trump’s representatives and the man himself have not immediately commented. We will have to wait for April 1 to see what happens.
