Trump Retweets Leader Of Far-Right British Extremist Group Who Was Just Convicted For Hate Speech

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump retweeted a number of posts by the deputy leader of one of the U.K.’s most far-right, anti-Islamic activist groups.

Early Wednesday, the U.S. president retweeted three anti-Islamic videos posted by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First, a group whose members are banned from mosques in England and Wales.

The group was formed in 2011 by former members of the British National Party (BNP) another well-known far-right, nationalist party. Its members campaign against multiculturalism and what they see as the Islamization of the country.

The Guardian reports that earlier this month Fransen was convicted of “religiously aggravated harassment” for verbally abusing a woman wearing a hijab.
