ONLINE ‘HACKTIVIST’ GROUP Anonymous has revealed its plans to scale up its movement against presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

In its most recent video, the group has said that it will be re-engaging its ‘#OpTrump’ campaign and will be aiming to bring down, a property website operated by the tycoon, on 1 April

In the video the group say that this is a “declaration of total war”.

“Your inconsistent and hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States of America, you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideas,” it says.

“You say what your current audience wants to hear but in reality you don’t stand for anything except for your personal greed and power.

This is a call to arms.

The group first announced its campaign the Republican hopeful towards the end of 2015 after Trump’s comments that he would like to see all Muslims barred from the United States.

The group encourages “every able person with a computer” to now get involved.

Despite receiving widespread coverage, the hacktivists attacks on the self-declared billionaire last year had little impact on his popularity as a candidate.
