The Islamic State group, which celebrated when Donald Trump won the U.S. general election in November, appeared to like the president even more a month into his term. The Republican commander-in-chief's popularity among ISIS members has grown since he took office, according to a story published Wednesday in Politico Magazine.

Simply, the fighters said they liked Trump's honesty.

Unlike his predecessors, Trump has proven to be "direct," with "no hidden agendas or behind-the-scenes plots," a Canadian member of ISIS told Politico. "He is clear and everyone, even the kuffar, know that he hates Muslims," the extremist added, using an Arabic term for nonbeliever.

Trump signed a slew of policies into place during his first few weeks in the White House, including a Jan. 27 executive order that temporarily forbid people from seven majority-Muslim countries from coming into the U.S. Though federal judges later blocked the travel ban, Trump has vowed to fight for it amid rumors that his administration may issue revised guidelines.

Actions like this have convinced some ISIS fighters that Trump is voicing Americans' long-held secret hate of Muslims, even though an Ipsos/Reuters poll taken after Trump's travel ban found that 41 percent of people disagreed with the measure.

The extremists told Politico they wanted Muslims in the U.S. to embrace ISIS and similar organizations as a way to respond to the animosity. Their stances echoed statements ISIS has previously made about Trump's victory.

"His utter hate towards Muslims will make our job much easier because we can recruit thousands," Abu Omar Khorasani, of ISIS in Afghanistan, told Reuters after the election. "Our leaders were closely following the U.S. election but it was unexpected that the Americans will dig their own graves and they did so."

Trump, meanwhile, indicated Tuesday night he was moving full speed ahead on his intent to take down the extremist organization. In touting his accomplishments in a joint address to Congress, Trump said he'd kept a campaign promise and asked the Department of Defense to come up with a plan to demolish ISIS, "a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs."

"We will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet," he added.
