The one guy who shouldn’t be making fun of other people is the dummy who failed in his terrorist suicide attempt in the New York City subways… but here he is mocking President Trump for failing to protect America’s citizens.
New York City terror suspect Akayed Ullah posted “Trump, you failed to protect your nation” on Facebook just prior to executing a botched terror bombing of the subway system.
Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi who moved to the United States on a family immigrant visa in 2011, attempted to cause major damage Monday morning with a homemade pipe bomb at a bus terminal close to Times Square, but the explosion only injured five people.
A criminal complaint filed Tuesday reveals that prior to the bombing, Ullah made a Facebook post that stated: “Trump you failed to protect your nation,” according to NBC News.
Ullah has so far been charged with material support for a terrorist organization, use of weapons of mass destruction and bombing of a public place. He was not previously known by law enforcement to have any terror ties.
Prosecutors are expected to discuss the charges more in-depth later on Tuesday.
One law enforcement source told CNN that Ullah detonated the bomb because he was upset at Israel’s recent “incursion into Gaza.”
It’s not clear exactly what Ullah meant by that comment, but over the weekend, Israel targeted Gaza with airstrikes in response to rockets fired by Hamas. Those rockets came amid President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
For their part, the animals at ISIS decided to jump in and use the failed NYC bombing in their propaganda efforts.
ISIS supporters took to propaganda channels in the wake of the attempted NYC bomb attack and declared to “recognize explosives” as the U.S. capital.
Online ISIS sympathizers shared a poster on a Telegram account after the attack that insinuated a connection between Monday’s botched bomb attempt in NYC and President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, according to PJ Media.
The poster, reported Monday by SITE Intelligence Group, depicted a hand holding an improvised bomb against an NYC backdrop with the text “The recognition of your dog ‘Trump’ Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will make us recognize explosives as the capital of your country.”

Akayed Ullah, the man suspected of attempting to bomb a New York subway station, further implied Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as a motive for his attack when he mentioned an “incursion into Gaza” to authorities after being treated for injuries he sustained in the botched detonation.
Ullah is a lawful resident of the U.S. and former cab driver who immigrated from Bangladesh with his parents in 2011 on a family immigrant visa. He reportedly strapped a homemade pipe bomb to his body and tried to blow up a New York city subway walkway during morning rush hour, which he allegedly targeted because of its Christmas ads, killing no one and injuring five people.
