The hacking group known as Anonymous claimed that they were able to hack the private information of GOP front-runner Donald Trump on Thursday afternoon.
The group took to YouTube to upload a video showcasing their latest work. The video is entitled Anonymous – #OpWhiteRose.
The man in the video greeted the citizens of the world and said that the time has come to “battle the forces of evil,” noting that bigotry and fascism have been at the forefront 2016 presidential campaigns. This is an obvious dig at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The masked speaker in the video continued to say that they are waging the “war” against the business mogul for the people who still have morale and would not let their votes be bought. The man added that the right to resist, even if one’s freedom and life are taken, is the center of their movement.
Furthermore, the video paints Donald Trump as someone who has set his ambitions on the White House in order to “promote an agenda of fascism and xenophobia as well as the religious persecution of Muslims through totalitarian policies.”

It could be remembered that the New York-based businessman did offer a solution to terrorism in the wake of the Paris attacks and the San Bernardino mass shooting. He went on to say that Muslims should be banned from coming into the United States and that a database should be set up to track their activities and whereabouts at all times.
The Republican presidential front-runner also made comments on Mexicans saying that they are responsible for bringing in bad people into the country. The masked man in the video brought up the issue, saying that the U.S. actually stole a great deal of land from Mexicans through the use of violence, and that the people from the other side of the boundary “did not cross the border, the border crossed them.”

With regard to terrorism, the Anonymous video continued to condemn the presidential hopeful for suggesting that terrorism can be deterred by assassinating the family members of terrorists. However, the group pointed out that the proposed solution is also a form of terrorism, which will only lead to more violence.
The masked man also reminded everyone Donald Trump studied the speeches of notorious Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler, as well as the Ku Klux Klan.

The most recent Trump-related news was also mentioned in the video regarding his promotion of violence against “peaceful protesters.” It was reported recently that a man in North Carolina punched a protester while he was being escorted out the venue of the Trump rally. The businessman has publicly confirmed that he asked his team to look into assisting the North Carolina supporter for his legal fees if he ever faces assault charges.
Along with the video, the hacking organization claimed that they have Donald Trump’s Social Security number, a mobile number which is said to belong to the presidential candidate, his birth date, his children’s names, and a company address. His personal agent and legal representative’s phone numbers were also allegedly posted by Anonymous.

The video comes two days after the hacktivist group declared “total war” on the Republican candidate. They released a threat claiming that on April 1, all of the websites of Donald Trump will be hacked in an attempt to dismantle his campaign and “sabotage his brand.”
