Elementary school age Barron Trump’s life was turned upside-down when his non-politician father Donald was elected president.
Barron has now been thrust in the middle of world-changing events and still attempting to lead a somewhat normal life.
However it appears that the First Son is under threat from ISIS, if intelligence obtained through monitoring a social media app widely used by terrorists can be believed.
The Middle East Media Research Institute have been following activity on an app called Telegram, and revealed to reporters that one message posted on November by an ISIS affiliate “called for the assassination of Barron Trump, and shared the name of the school that Barron attends along with a Google map pinpointing its location.”
Said Barry Spielman, who runs the internet surveillance company Sixgill, “Our intelligence suggests that these threats are to be taken seriously.” He explained just how popular this app has become with terrorists, stating, “We have seen both official and non-offical ISIS channels move over to Telegram. We used to just track the Dark Web and Deep Web. But now we are tracking Telegram.”
According to MEMRI, the Telegram user “Dak Al-Munafiqeen” added as a hashtage to his post the phrase “handle the son of the mule of America.” MEMRI added, “The post was followed by a photo of Barron Trump.” Do you think the White House needs to take this threat seriously?
