The number 2 leader of Shiite Iran narco-terrorist proxy Hezbollah, echoing other jihadist groups, has denounced President-elect Donald Trump as “racist.”

In an interview with Iran’s state-run Tasnim News Agency, Sheikh Naim Qassem, Hezbollah’s second-in-command, noted that the protests against Trump show the United States in a “real crisis.”

“The demonstrations will change equations in the U.S., and the new president might withdraw from implementation of some of his decisions,” he added.

The leader of Hezbollah, based in Lebanon, argued that Trump’s plans for the United States would spell trouble for everyone.

Trump has vowed to take a stronger stance against Hezbollah’s benefactor Iran and Islamic terrorist organizations.

Qassem suggested that whoever becomes president in Iran, the Islamic Republic will continue to provide funding to the terrorist group Hezbollah.

The United States has officially designated the Shiite group a terrorist organization.

Qassem’s accusation that Trump is “racist” is consistent with comments by other radical Islamic terrorist groups, such as al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), in response to the results of the U.S. presidential election.

MB, which has been praised by Democrats President Barack Obama and presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, denounced “racist” Trump’s victory over the former secretary of state as a “disaster” for the Arab and Muslim world.

Al-Qaeda-linked Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, a jihadist who has nearly 60,000 followers on Twitter, gloated about Trump’s victory over the Democrats, suggesting that it “may be the beginning of America’s fragmentation and the era of its breakup.”

He also tweeted that the the election of Trump “reveals the true mentality of the Americans, and their racism toward Muslims and Arabs and everything. He reveals what his predecessors used to conceal. So his victory further exposes America and its appendages.”

Moreover, a Yemen-based newspaper affiliated with al-Qaeda, Al Masra, has accused Trump’s choice for White House strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, of being racist.

Bannon is the the former executive chairman of Breitbart News and host of Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125.

“He has already published racist titles against women, Jews, and Muslims. Bannon has changed Breitbart website into far-right forum for Neo-Nazis groups who believes in the white race supremacy and anti-Semitism,” reported al-Qaeda’s newspaper, warning that Bannon would bring “white race supremacy” into the White House.

Some Democrats have also accused Trump and his team of being racist.

The Foreign Desk reported that the al-Qaeda publication in Yemen approvingly cited criticism of Bannon from a number of “Democratic senators and organizations.”
