HOLY SMOKES! POTUS Trump DESTROYS UK PM Theresa May For Condemning Retweets of Right-Wing Activist
President Trump set off a firestorm for retweeting three videos showing alleged violent attacks by Muslims, posted by Britain First’s Jayda Fransen.
In case you missed them, here they are.
Theresa May’s spokesman issued the following statement in respect to the retweets: “Britain First seeks to divide communities by their use of hateful narratives that peddle lies and stoke tensions. They cause anxiety to law-abiding people. British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right which is the antithesis of the values this country represents, decency, tolerance and respect.”
NEW: Downing Street on Pres. Trump's retweets of anti-Muslim videos tweeted by figure from extremist British group: "It is wrong for the President to have done this." https://t.co/Bdz3O40csK pic.twitter.com/Ttsiikh34Z

In a Wednesday evening tweet, President Trump torched May over her statement.
“.@Theresa_May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!”
