Trump Retweets Controversial ‘Britain First’ Activist Jayda Fransen


United States President Donald J. Trump retweeted a series of posts by Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen, an anti-Islam and anti-mass migration activist who has been recently charged with hate crimes in the United Kingdom.

The three tweets which were recirculated by the president early Wednesday morning all feature videos claiming to show attacks by Muslims. One claims to show a “Dutch boy on crutches” being beaten up by a “Muslim migrant”. As the young man is beaten to the ground, others stand around and watch, and laughter can be heard in the background.

In the second video, a bearded man throws a statue of the Virgin Mary to the floor, causing it to smash into pieces. In the third, a man is thrown off the roof of a building. The caption reads: “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”

Fransen responded positively to the retweets from President Trump, writing “God bless you Trump! God bless America!” and appending the message with an abbreviation reported to mean ‘Onward, Christian Soldiers.”
