President-elect Donald Trump's ongoing rhetoric connecting Muslim to ISIS is in itself a vehicle that will inspire more terrorist attacks, according to Time.

In other words, Trump will cause more attacks, Time says.

Just Wednesday, Trump said the attacks in Berlin and Turkey proved that he was right about clamping down on Muslim immigration to the U.S.

By lumping all Muslims in with those terrorist attacks, Trump's words will alienate and create a feeding ground for ISIS in places within the Muslim community that might not have been there in the first place, Time writes.

"We will see violence by people who aren't specifically recruited by ISIS but who just feel events are too horrible to go unanswered," Daniel Benjamin, a former counter-terrorism chief at the State Department, told Time.

Time says Trump would be wise to tamp down the "Us vs. Muslims" rhetoric and halt framing Islam as a religion of terror. If America turns its backs on the majority of Muslims because of a fanatic minority that has hijacked the religion for political causes, who will be there to accept and embrace them?

Trump "is a complete maniac," said Abu Omar Khorasani, a top ISIS commander in Afghanistan told Reuters after the election. "His utter hate towards Muslims will make our job much easier because we can recruit thousands."
