Donald Trump has retweeted three anti-Muslim videos posted by the deputy leader of far-right group Britain First.

The President posted the clips from the account of Jayda Fransen, who was convicted of religiously aggravated harassment in November 2016 after abusing a woman wearing a hijab.


One video titled ‘Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death’ is four years old.

A second titled ‘Muslim destroys a statue of Virgin Mary’ is two years old.


Fransen was arrested again earlier this month following comments she made during a speech in Belfast and taken to Northern Ireland for questioning. She was charged with using “threatening, abusive or insulting words or behavior”.

Paul Golding, the leader of Britain First, told Yahoo News UK that Mr Trump’s retweets are a reaction to Fransen’s arrest by the President.

‘Free speech is dead in this country. President Trump has seen the facts and this is the result.

‘To retweet her three times consecutively shows he has heard about her plight and is disgusted by it,’ said Mr Golding.

‘I think this information has made its way to the White House and the President is sharing his disgust about this Micky Mouse nonsense stopping her free speech.’

One of the videos was shared by Ann Coulter, a U.S. conservative commentator whom Mr Trump follows on twitter.

Britain First is known for posting inflammatory and unverified videos on social media that they claim show the ‘Islamification of the UK’.

The group responded to The President’s actions with a tweet saying: ‘THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DONALD TRUMP, HAS RETWEETED THREE OF DEPUTY LEADER JAYDA FRANSEN’S TWITTER VIDEOS!

‘DONALD TRUMP HIMSELF HAS RETWEETED THESE VIDEOS AND HAS AROUND 44 MILLION FOLLOWERS!

‘GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP! GOD BLESS AMERICA!’
