Focus on Radical Islamic Terrorism in UK, Not Me, Trump Tweets to May

WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday a message in response to British Prime Minister Theresa May after she criticized him for retweeting videos posted by a British far-right politician.

“Theresa @theresamay, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom,” Trump said on his Twitter account, adding “We are doing just fine!”

On Wednesday, Trump triggered a backlash from the British government and many other sectors in the United Kingdom and the US after he retweeted three messages posted by a far-right British politician, which contained videos of alleged Muslims and their violent attitudes.

The British politician from the Britain First party, Jayda Fransen, published videos with titles such as “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches,” “Muslim destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary” and “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”

Dutch authorities criticized on Wednesday one of the three videos, saying that the two children in the video are both Dutch citizens.

A spokesperson for the British government said that “British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right which is the antithesis of the values this country represents, decency, tolerance and respect.”

The spokesperson also pointed out that “Britain First seeks to divide communities by their use of hateful narratives that peddle lies and stoke tensions.”
