Hacking collective Anonymous has vowed “total war” against Donald Trump, making a “call to arms” by summoning fellow hacktivists to unite with them in an attack against all of his websites on April Fool’s Day.
In a resurgence of its #OpTrump campaign, the group released a new video addressing the controversial Republican candidate directly.
“Dear Donald Trump, we have been watching you for a long time and what we see is deeply disturbing,” a masked figure declares in customary Anonymous fashion.
“You have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideals,” he continues.
The focus is then turned to hacktivists and citizens: “This is a call to arms…we need you to shut down his websites, research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know. We need you to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand.”
The clip ends with a message for Trump “This is not a warning, this is a declaration of total war. Donald Trump – it is too late to expect us.”
Earlier this month, Anonymous leaked some of Trump’s voicemail messages which revealed a cosy relationship between him and members of the US liberal media.
