The terrorist who was arrested for detonating a pipe bomb inside a pedestrian subway tunnel in New York City had sent a mocking message the White House’s way on Facebook that read: “Trump you failed.”
The full text of the message spoke of Trump’s so-called failure to protect America from terrorists.
Akayed Ullah, 27, now faces a slew of federal and state terrorism charges.
Here’s more on his background:
The fact his social media posts show he thinks his attack is just a game shows the pure evil of the radicalized Islam mind.
The man accused of blowing up a homemade explosive in a pedestrian subway tunnel in the heart of New York posted on Facebook earlier in the day, saying, “Trump you failed to protect your nation,” according to a criminal complaint.
Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi man, faces a number of federal and state terrorism charges after he allegedly detonated a device made of a battery, wires, metal screws and a Christmas tree lightbulb during the busy morning commute on Monday.
Five people were treated for minor injuries at area hospitals, while the suspect was said to be seriously injured.
In an interview with investigators, Ullah admitted that he built and detonated the device and said he was inspired to do so by ISIS.
“I did it for the Islamic State,” Ullah told investigators, according to the federal complaint.
He faces five federal terrorism-related charges and three state terrorism-related charges, according to court documents.
