Washington, DC, United States (4E) – The White House has cancelled Donald Trump’s downgraded “working level visit” to the United Kingdom in January 2018 following widespread anger among the many British on the childish U.S. president’s retweeting anti-Muslim movies yesterday.
It stays unlikely that Trump, who stays deeply unpopular within the UK, will go to the nation in 2018. British media has reported that any go to by Trump might be greeted by mass protests organized by outraged Britons livid at Trump’s racist angle, exemplified by his criticism of London’s Muslim mayor and yesterday’s anti-Muslim movies he endorsed.
Trump, in his traditional fashion, has not apologized for endorsing the inflammatory movies. This episode, one other in an extended line of infantile and presumably psychotic conduct by Trump, has once more threatened to wreck the historic “special relationship” binding the U.S. and the UK for effectively over a century.
The unthinking U.S. president re-tweeted three movies from Jayda Frandsen, deputy chief of “Britain First,” a far proper anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim hate group. Britain First was organized in 2011 and is thought for picketing outdoors mosques. It has misplaced in a number of British and European parliament elections.
One of the movies falsely claims to indicate a Muslim migrant beating up a Dutch boy on crutches. The Dutch embassy in Washington publicly criticized Trump on Twitter for spreading this falsehood.
“@realDonaldTrump Facts do matter. The perpetrator of the violent act in this video was born and raised in the Netherlands. He received and completed his sentence under Dutch law,” tweeted the Dutch embassy.
Another video purports to indicate an Islamist mob pushing a teen — who was a Muslim — off a rooftop and beating him to loss of life, with none context. Experts mentioned this video did not happen within the UK however in Egypt in 2013. A person was executed for his function within the Muslim teen’s loss of life.
The third video allegedly depicts a Muslim smashing a statue of the Virgin Mary.
After Trump re-posted her three movies, Fransen ecstatically tweeted in all caps:
“THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DONALD TRUMP, HAS RETWEETED THREE OF DEPUTY LEADER JAYDA FRANSEN’S TWITTER VIDEOS!
“DONALD TRUMP HIMSELF HAS RETWEETED THESE VIDEOS AND HAS AROUND 44 MILLION FOLLOWERS! GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP! GOD BLESS AMERICA!”
Fransen was discovered responsible in 2016 of a hate crime after hurling abuse at a Muslim girl carrying a hijab.
Downing Street condemned Trump for spreading anti-Muslim hate.
“It is wrong for the president to have done this,” mentioned May in a press release.
Turning her ire on Britain First, May mentioned this hate group sought to “divide communities in their use of hateful narratives which pedal lies and stoke tensions.”
“This causes anxieties to law abiding people. The British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudice rhetoric of the far-right, which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents; decency, tolerance and respect.”
Several British opposition lawmakers lashed out at Trump and referred to as on the federal government to rescind the invitation to the state go to.
“The U.S. president is normalizing hatred. If we don’t call this out, we are going down a very dangerous road,” tweeted Labor Party politician Chuka Umunna.
“His invite to visit the U.K. in 2018 should be immediately withdrawn.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan mentioned Trump’s newest outburst meant it had turn out to be “increasingly clear that any official visit at all from President Trump to Britain would not be welcomed.” He requested May to name it off.
“President Trump yesterday used twitter to promote a vile, extremist group that exists solely to sow division and hatred in our country,” mentioned Khan.
“Many Brits who love America and Americans will see this as a betrayal of the special relationship between our two countries. It beggars belief that the President of our closest ally doesn’t see that his support of this extremist group actively undermines the values of tolerance and diversity that makes Britain so great.”
