People around the world logged into Twitter on Wednesday, only to be met with a series of incredibly Islamophobic re-tweets by U.S. President Donald Trump.

The three videos shared by the U.S. president were tweeted by a member of the far-right hate group Britain First's Deputy Leader Jayda Fransen. Although all the videos were old and had verifiably inaccurate captions demonizing Muslims, Trump happily tweeted them out to his 43.6 million followers.

When questioned by journalists, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders argued that it doesn't actually matter whether the videos are real or not, it only matters that the threat from Muslims is (apparently) real. 

British and American leaders from across the political and media spectrum were quick to call out Trump and criticize his decision to share the tweets. Fransen, who originally shared the videos, was actually just convicted of committing a hate crime against a Muslim mother in front of her children in the United Kingdom.

Trump himself doubled down, responding directly to criticism from British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Muslims on social media were quick to react to the offensive re-tweets

London's mayor, who is himself Muslim, reiterated that Britain First is a "vile, hate-fueled" group

But some just weren't even surprised

Trump is always brewing up controversy

So, why was the media acting confused?

Some called out the media for failing to give Muslims the chance to weigh in

And for being distracted by other breaking news

The demonization of Muslims isn't OK

But at least the Muslim community has some political allies in the U.S.

Many are calling on Twitter to shut Trump's account down for good

And a closing remark ...
