The videos Trump retweeted to his 43.6 million followers are called “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!”, “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!” and “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”
Fransen, who, along with Britain First leader Paul Golding, was charged with causing religiously aggravated harassment earlier this year, tweeted “God bless you Trump! God bless America!” in capitals in response to the President’s retweet, followed by the abbreviation OCS, standing for Onward Christian Soldiers.
