British PM Theresa May Rips Trump’s Retweeting Anti-Muslim Videos: ‘Wrong…To Have Done This’
The press office for 10 Downing Street is condemning President Trump for retweeting three Islamophobic videos posted by a British ultranationalist fringe leader.
The president set the Twitterverse ablaze again today when he used his account to circulate unverified propaganda from an anti-Islam activist who was previously arrested for “religiously aggravated harassment” against Muslims. In light of the current commotion, a spokesperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May released a statement where she also criticized the president.

“British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudice of the far-right, which it is the antithesis of the values that this country represents: decency tolerance and respect,” the statement reads. “It is wrong for the President to have done this.”
Various British political figures have slammed Trump for his retweets already, and they were especially condemned when they were brought up during discussions in Parliament.
