Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is featured in a new terrorist recruitment video, according to multiple news reports.

In the new video produced by al-Shabab, al-Qaida's affiliate in Somalia, a clip of Trump telling rallygoers in December he was calling for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on," is used. The expletive is bleeped out.

Prior to the clip of Trump, former al-Qaida leader Anwar al-Awlaki, who died in a U.S. airstrike in 2011, is seen telling "Muslims of the West" to "learn from the lessons of history," CBS News reports. 

"There are ominous clouds gathering in your horizon," al-Awlaki says. "Yesterday, America was a land of slavery, segregation, lynching, and Ku Klux Klan. And tomorrow it will be a land of religious discrimination and concentration camps."

After Trump's quote, al-Awlaki is seen saying, "The West will eventually turn against its Muslim citizens."

The video was revealed  just two weeks after Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton called him the Islamic State's (ISIS) "best recruiter." 

Back in December, fact checkers were critical of Clinton after she said in a Democratic debate that ISIS is " going to people showing them videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists."

No such recruitment videos existed that anyone in the West was aware of, according to various media outlets. Clinton's campaign responded that she had never said there were official recruitment videos using Trump's words.
