By the when Donald Trump became president of USA, he always loves to be in media headlines and most of the time due to the controversial reasons whether it’s any statement, tweet or any controversial decision. He is well known for his outspoken habit and peculiar retorts.
Trump on Wednesday trending on micro-blogging site Twitter, when he retweeted incendiary anti-Muslim videos by Britain First, a group founded in 2011 by former members of the far-right British National Party (BNP).
The three videos Trump shared were titled “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!”
After that the White House on Thursday came out in defense of US President Donald Trump who retweeted anti-Muslim videos from a far-right British account, arguing that he has been talking about national security issues for long.
“The President has been talking about these security issues for years now, from the campaign trail to the White House. He talked about them yesterday at the pool spray. He’s going to continue to talk about them on Twitter, he’s going to talk about them in speeches, he’s going to talk about them in policy…,” White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah told reporters aboard Air Force One.
Shah was along with Trump en route to St Louis, Missouri, where the US president was scheduled to deliver a major speech on middle-class tax relief and business tax relief.
Shah accentuated that safety and security were precedences of the US administration. “Look, we are now looking at the possibility of a difficulty in passing government funding legislation because of disagreements on immigration policy. The Democrats’ priority is amnesty. Our priority is safety and security,” he stated. He strongly refuted allegations that Trump is anti-Muslim.
Trump also faced criticism from The Downing Street which said US president was wrong to retweet the controversial videos.
In the response, Trump mentioned UK Prime Minister and tweet “Don’t focus on me. Focus on the destructive radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine”
