Anonymous have sent a stark message to Donald Trump

Anonymous have a message for Donald Trump in the wake of his US election victory.

The internet hacktivism group issued a plea for peace and unity to Trump and other world leaders after he won the race to become the planet's most powerful political figure.

It's not the first time the paths of the US president-elect and the global hacktivist collective's paths have crossed.

The FBI were investigating Anonymous over a online leak of Trump's mobile phone and social security numbers during the presidential race.

But now the Republican nominee swept to victory over Hillary Clinton and is set to become the President of the United States of America, Anonymous have put out a video message directed at him.

The video, which has already been viewed more than two million times, opens with Ronald Reagan's famous 1964 speech 'A Time For Choosing' along with images of terror attacks including 9/11 and the Boston bombings.

Then it cuts to an Anonymous figure who directs a message at the POTUS-elect calling for unity and an end to conflict which it claims will lead to a third world war.

''Greetings, world. We are Anonymous. Message to Donald Trump and our world leaders. How many more wars? How many more people have to die? Enough is enough, these strategic war games need to cease.

''This isn’t a game and there are no winners, your proxy wars are over, end this now. If you fail to heed this message a third world war is inevitable.

''Millions will die and every single one of their deaths will be by your incompetence as so-called ‘leaders.’

''This is a call to every peace-seeker, to every valuer of truth and honesty, to every being of unity and progress. You are the ones that must stand together and rise in the face of conflict.

''We can stand united and show that we will not allow ourselves to be used as pawns in a never-ending game of lies and adversity. The future of this species relies on the choices we make right now.

''The outcome of our actions will have a lasting impact on generations to come. Do not come to regret the future you created for your children and their children.

''This is your opportunity to make a difference and put peace above self-interests. To change and redesign the status quo. This is your chance to create something truly magnificent. We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.''
