President Donald Trump vowed on the 2016 campaign trail that his administration would wipe radical Islamic terrorists off the face of the earth.
When Trump took office, he gave military generals the green light to utterly destroy terror groups such as the Islamic State — and they are pretty much all dead or in hiding today.
While America is winning the battle in the Middle East, the president has been warning that these terrorist will try to infiltrate the U.S. and carry out attacks on our soil.
And the president was proven correct again this week after an ISIS thug was arrested and hauled off to prison for a very long time.
An ISIS fanatic dubbed “The Dentist” stockpiled weapons and a pocket chainsaw in his Bronx, New York, apartment has been jailed for 22 years.
At only 26-years-old, Sajmir Alimehmet was already identified as a fanatic.
He reportedly “hoped to behead people with a pocket chainsaw,” and now he’s being locked up for over two decades.
United States District Judge Paul Englemayer declared Alimehmeti a “ticking time bomb” who had a stockpile of “weapons that would be used to restrain, gut, or decapitate a human body.”
Additionally, reports indicate that Alimehmeti confessed to watching ISIS beheading videos and helping a terrorist recruit — something that should alarm everyone, especially given his U.S. residence.
They included a military-grade survival knife with a five-inch blade, three tactical knives with four-inch blades, two credit-card-sized folding knives, a commando wire pocket saw, a 24-inch pocket chainsaw, a rucksack designed for tactical combat, a tactical ski mask and handcuffs.
Judge Englemayer said it was impossible to conceive of a benign reason for Alimehmeti to stockpile weapons that would be used to restrain, gut, or decapitate a human body.
Alimehmeti reportedly used coded language when referring to places he wanted to travel to “brush his teeth.”
Prosecutors also said that he claimed he watched ISIS beheading videos to keep himself motivated while exercising.
He allegedly initially tried to travel to the Middle East to join ISIS twice in 2014 but was stopped by British authorities both times.
He is accused of being stopped at Manchester Airport in October 2014 when security found nunchucks and camouflage clothing in his luggage.
And he is accused of trying to get to the Middle East again in December that year but was stopped by security at Heathrow Airport in London when they found images of ISIS fighters and improvised explosive devices on his cellphone.
UK authorities then informed the FBI who began an investigation into Alimehmeti.

Defense attorney Susan Kellman made excuses for Alimehmeti, claiming in court that he had struggled to fit in after moving to the U.S. from Albania when he was six-years-old.
Kellman claimed Alimehmeti was radicalized as a teenager during a stint for robbery in the Fishkill Correctional Facility by Mohamed Mamdouh, one of the masterminds behind a foiled plot to blow up a Manhattan synagogue in 2011.
As the offensive continues against foreign terror cells in the Middle East and elsewhere, going after terrorism here at home is just as crucial.
Trump witnessed the 9/11 terror attacks with his own eyes and is working hard to avoid another one ever happening again on the home front.
