The Anonymous Group Ghost Squad Hackers Took Down Trumps Websites. “#opTrump – Anonymous Declared War against Donald Trump.” Hacktivist collective Anonymous has threatened to take down 2016 presidential hopeful Donald Trump, this time declaring “Total War” on the GOP frontrunner. Anonymous’ war plan against Trump includes dismantling the candidate’s online presence and digging for dirt on the business tycoon in an attempt to destroy his brand.
According to a video posted on YouTube on March 4th, this plan of attack includes a specific timeline. April 1 was the takedown date for TrumpChicago.com, and Anonymous recruited and still recruiting supporters to aid in its attack.
“Donald Trump, think twice before you speak anything,“ Said a masked member of Anonymous in a video at the time. “You have been warned.”
In that video, the Anonymous representative makes clear that the group is welcoming all willing participants to join in the group’s so-called war on Trump — with or without hacking experience. “This is a call to protect our future, our freedom and our very way of life,” Reads the hacktivist group member during the video.
Talking to HACKAGON, A member of Ghost Squad Hackers, an Anonymous-Affiliated Group that hacked Ethiopian websites in response to the killing of protesting students, told that the group took down Donald Trump‘s 2 websites “Trump.com” and “trumphotelcollection.com” hosted on CloudFlare and flooded it with DDoS Attacks.

Anonymous’ words for Donald Trump: “Dear Donald Trump, we have been watching you for a long time and what we see is deeply disturbing, Your inconsistent and the hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States of America, you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideas.”
Additionally, the group is also aiming to hack some US-based websites — including some famous universities — to send a message to Donald Trump. The hacker told, “The reason we choose universities is, to let the generation know what they are up against and what kind of leader will lead them,”.
It would appear that Anonymous is now ready to scale up its efforts to dismantle Trump’s candidacy, this time with a clearer plan of attack. Watch the group’s most recent video on Trump here at HACKAGON and follow the conversation across social media at #OpTrump.
