Entry curbs imposed by US President Donald Trump on travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries are proof of America’s “hatred towards Muslims”, sympathisers of Islamist militant groups said according to the US-based SITE monitoring service.
It said the “Scholars of Haq” channel asked on the messaging app Telegram whether Trump’s policies meant he was currently the best “caller to Islam” -- someone who attracts new believers.
Of the first 48 users to respond, 34 (or 71 per cent) answered that he (Trump) was, according to SITE.
