Donald Trump has fired back at Theresa May by saying she should concentrate on ‘Radical Islamic Terrorism taking place in the UK’ and not his Twitter activity.
The British Prime Minister slammed the president on Wednesday after he retweeted anti-Muslim videos posted by the leader of the far-right group, Britain First.
The first clip he shared depicted a ‘Muslim migrant’ beating up a ‘Dutch boy on crutches’.
But Trump overlooked her criticism, and hinted that she should be focusing on potential security threats and radicalization.
He wrote: ‘Theresa @theresamay, 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!’
The firestorm over Trump’s move on social media came during a fierce debate in Britain as to whether he should be invited on a state visit.
Tory Communities Secretary was the first member of Theresa May’s cabinet to respond to Trump’s retweeting of the Britain First videos.
May slammed the president after he shared anti-Muslim videos posted by the leader of the far right Britain First but Trump overlooked her criticism, and said she should be focused on keeping her people safe.
