President Donald Trump Retweets Britain First Deputy Leader Jayda Fransen

U.S. President Donald Trump was criticized by the British government on Wednesday after sharing a series of videos with his Twitter followers showing Muslims committing acts of violence.

All three videos were originally posted to Twitter by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of the nationalist group Britain First.

In one video, labeled as “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches,” a Muslim youth attacks a Dutch teenager with mobility issues, who is on crutches. The Dutch teenager was punched repeatedly until he fell to the ground and then was viciously kicked several times.

The Dutch embassy in Washington tweeted Wednesday afternoon that the Muslim perpetrator in the video was not a migrant, but was born and raised in the Netherlands.

The second of Fransen’s videos retweeted by Trump features a bearded man shattering a statue of the Virgin Mary.

In the third, a group of men, including one carrying a black flag, attacks another group, beating them as they fall from a ledge.
