Trump: May must focus on “Islamic terrorism” in her country


The president was strongly criticized by the government of the United Kingdom, following controversial right-wing videos that he retuided.

The US president, Donald Trump, responded on Tuesday (29.11.2017) to the criticism he received from the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, following tweets from a far-right British policy that the American president shared in his account.

“Theresa May, do not worry about me, worry about the destructive Islamic radical terrorism that is taking place within the UK, we are doing well!” Said Trump in a message on his Twitter account.

Trump caused outrage in the United States and in many sectors in the United Kingdom by sharing on Twitter the three messages of Jayda Fransen, which show violent attitudes of Muslim assumptions.

Frasen, who belongs to the party without representation Britain First, published the videos with titles such as “Muslim immigrant hits a Dutch child on crutches”, “Muslim destroys statue of the Virgin Mary” and “Muslim gang launches teenager from a roof and beat him to death. ”

The Dutch authorities soon discredited one of the videos, claiming that the two children who appear are Dutch citizens.

To this, a spokesman for Downing Street responded to the president’s action by stating that “Britain First seeks to divide communities through their use of hate narratives, which spread lies and stir up tensions.”

“The British, for the most part, reject the prejudicial rhetoric of the far right, which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents: decency, tolerance and respect,” he said. He added that “it’s wrong that the president has done this.”

The White House did not want to comment on the authenticity of the videos. “I’m not talking about the nature of the video, I think they’re focusing on the wrong thing,” spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters in front of the White House.

“The threat is real and that’s what the president is talking about,” Sanders added, referring to the threat of Islamist terrorism.

Sanders added that Trump’s retweets demonstrated the importance of national security and military spending.
