Donald Trump retweets anti-Muslim videos

Published

on

Displaying his full resentment against the Muslims, President Donald Trump on Wednesday shared videos portraying Muslims committing acts of violence on Twitter, images that are likely to fuel anti-Islam sentiments. The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the videos. Trump did not offer any explanation for why he retweeted the videos.

Donald Trump titled the videos such as  “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!” “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!” and “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off the roof and beats him to death!” It is extremely rare to see the President of America push out this type of content on such a powerful social media platform.

Taking a shot at CNN, Trump praised his administration for a strong stock market in other Twitter posts on Wednesday morning. He retweeted the video posts from an ultra-nationalist British party leader, Jayda Fransen, who has previously been charged in the UK with “religious aggravated harassment,” according to news reports.

Videos retweeted by Trump describes his views about Islam. He didn’t hesitate during his 2016 presidential campaign days when he said, “Islam hates us” and called for a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims coming to the US. It was unclear on Wednesday morning whether the perpetrators in the videos were Muslim, as Fransen suggested. Trump is not among Fransen’s Twitter followers.

But the president does follow a conservative commentator, Ann Coulter, who on Tuesday retweeted the video purporting to show a Muslim migrant beating a Dutch boy. Fransen is the deputy of the far-right party Britain First, which was co-founded by a man who later supported Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and was part of the efforts to spread the anti-Clinton news on social media. British politicians were quick to condemn Trump’s tacit endorsement of the videos.
