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.
