Donald Trump retweets anti-Muslim videos, sparks outrage
WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump has ignited online outrage after he retweeted three anti-Muslim videos on his account having 43.6 million followers, purportedly showing violence by Muslim migrants.
The videos were originally posted by far-right Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen.
The first retweet was a video titled, “Muslim migrant beating up a Dutch boy on crutches,” while the second, “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!,” and the third and most gruesome, “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”
Fransen’s Twitter account has a video pinned to the top of it in which she marches down the streets of Luton, England carrying a white cross.
The video is captioned, “The Muslims of Luton claim they’ve taken our country from us! It seems my Christian cross really offends them!”
Fransen responded to Trump sharing her videos to 44 million followers by tweeting “GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP! GOD BLESS YOU AMERICA!”
Trump slammed for ‘supporting bigots’
