WH on Trump's Retweet of Muslim Videos: 'Never the Wrong Time to Talk About Security'

Following outrage on both sides of the Atlantic on Wednesday, the White House is defending President Trump's re-tweet of various videos, posted by a British woman who leads a nationalist group calling itself "Britain First."

The videos, which may or may not be real, purport to show Muslims attacking Christians or Christian symbols.

Trump's re-tweets drew a response from British Prime Minister Theresa May, whose spokesman issued a statement, saying:

“Britain First seeks to divide communities by their use of hateful narratives that peddle lies and stoke tensions. They cause anxiety to law-abiding people. British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right which is the antithesis of the values this country represents, decency, tolerance and respect.”

Trump tweeted back: ".@Theresa May, 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!"
