The Prime Minister of Britain Theresa May on Wednesday lashed out at President Trump for retweeting anti Muslim videos on Twitter. She condemned the act of President Trump’s decision to share violent acts by Muslims.
Donald Trump retweeted three videos that were first sent out by the leader of an ultranationalist political party in Great Britain, Britain First, who was once convicted of harassing a Muslim.
Theresa May’s spokesperson told the Nbc News. “Britain First seeks to divide communities in their use of hateful narratives which pedal lies and stoke tensions,”
“This causes anxiety to law abiding people. British people overwhelming reject the prejudice rhetoric of the far-right, which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents; decency, tolerance and respect. It is wrong for the president to have done this.”
Trump has a long history of anti Muslim rhetoric, and he, during his campaign talked about barring Muslims from entering the country, faced widespread criticism after retweeting the videos. Though some muslims are indulging in violence in the name of God and religion, it does not mean that all Muslims are radicals.
One of the videos appears to show a man beating another young man holding crutches, while another shows a group of people kicking a man after he was thrown off a building.
According to BBC News, The videos were originally tweeted by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First. Fransen was arrested earlier this month over a speech she gave this summer at a Northern Ireland Against Terrorism rally in Belfast,
