The message was quickly taken down. A Google.com search revealed the cached website’s message as it appeared just after 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

“Team System Dz,” takes credit for the message, taking target at President Donald Trump.

“You will be held accountable Trump, you and all your people for every drop of blood flowing in Muslim countries”

The Howard County government website is down while Howard County’s IT department addresses the issue following the hack.
