U.S.- U.K. Relations on the Rocks After Trump’s Retweet
It may be time for Trump to take an indefinite break from the Twittersphere after his latest mishap.
Trump retweeted a video that he hoped would benefit his anti- Muslim regime, as it showed what was supposed to be a Muslim migrant beating up an innocent person on crutches.

But Trump hates so-called “fake news”- he would never retweet such, right? Wrong! It came out soon after he retweeted the string of anti- Muslim videos that the individual in the video was not a migrant, but in fact a citizen of the Netherlands born and raised there. The individual was reprimanded under Dutch law and served a sentence for his abusive actions.
Theresa May, the U.K. Prime Minister, denounced the actions of the President, her spokesperson telling the press that it was, “wrong for the president to have done this.”
So what was the response Trump’s spokesperson Sarah Sanders had in regards to the video being fake? “Whether it’s a real video, the threat is real.”
Next time, you may want to retweet a real video then, Mr. President.
