https://democracynow.org – President Donald Trump drew international outrage Wednesday after he retweeted three violent videos shared by a leader of the fringe, far-right-wing group Britain First. The videos purport to show violence carried out by Muslims. The videos were posted early Tuesday by Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen, who was arrested just days ago on hate speech charges over an appearance in Belfast last August. She was previously found guilty of religiously aggravated harassment after she verbally accosted a Muslim shopkeeper during a so-called “Christian patrol” last year in the English town of Luton. We get response from Mehdi Hasan, award-winning British journalist and broadcaster at Al Jazeera English and columnist for The Intercept.
