Trump retweets violent videos from anti-Muslim British politician

In between tweets attacking "Fake News CNN," lauding the stock market, and commenting on Matt Lauer's firing, President Trump retweeted three videos Wednesday morning from Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain's far-right, anti-immigrant Britain First group. The videos purport to show Muslims killing a boy, beating up a Dutch youth on crutches, and destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary. Fransen, 31, is on bail and facing four charges of religiously aggravated harassment for yelling insults at a Muslim woman in front of her children during a "Christian patrol." She celebrated the attention from the American president, tweeting: "God bless you Trump! God bless America!"
