What a twit! Trump told stay away from Bognor after he mistakenly tweets Theresa May from the town

The videos shared by the US President were originally posted by far-right politician Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First, an anti-Muslim "ultranationalist" group formed in 2011 by former members of the hard-right British National Party.

Mr Trump sparked worldwide outrage after retweeting to his 43.6m followers three posts by far-right activist Jayda Fransen, including unverified footage purporting to show Muslims committing crimes.

The Daily Beast also reports that Fransen has been convicted of religiously aggravated harassment after abusing a woman wearing a headscarf during an anti-Islam rally and "Christian patrol" in London.

The first video is captioned "Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches", and shows one man kicking another to the ground. As we know Donald Trump stands for free speech. Donald Trump himself has retweeted these videos and has around 44million followers!

Taiwan blasts Lee's conviction in China
Lee and Peng indicated in court that they accepted the verdict and sentence, and said they had no plans to appeal. Taiwan's presidential office and the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) called the verdict "unacceptable".

Muslim American leaders gathered on Capitol Hill to condemn President Trump's sharing of videos purporting to show Muslims committing violent acts just hours after he posted the images to his Twitter feed.

Trump's spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, declared that the facts did not matter, and that even if the description of the video being disseminated by right-wing extremists and Trump was false, "the threat is real".

Trump's retort to the PM, which he first addressed to the wrong Theresa May Twitter account, "has led to renewed calls for Mr Trump's planned state visit to the United Kingdom to be cancelled, although Downing Street said on Wednesday that the invitation still stood", the BBC reports.

"It is wrong for the president to have done this", said a spokesperson from the office of Theresa May, adding that Britain First is a group that spins "hate-filled narratives to peddle lies and stoke tensions". "He received and completed his sentence under Dutch law".

"It is wrong for the president to have done this". Trump's retweets of the clips have sparked outrage.

After Trump's Twitter-frenzy the Washington-insider news website Politico quoted two unnamed White House aides as voicing concern that that Twitter, "allowed the president to continue accessing fringe websites and viewing racist videos simply by scanning his "mentions".

Mrs May delivered the surprise invitation during a visit to the White House shortly after Mr Trump's inauguration.

Trump, on the other hand, tweeted out to May on Wednesday night asking her not to focus on him.
