Fury as President Trump retweets videos posted by the deputy leader ...


Ministers today faced demands to cancel Donald Trump's State Visit after the US President retweeted anti-Muslim videos posted by a far-right UK group.

MPs insisted Mr Trump was 'not welcome here' following the Twitter posts, while the widow of murdered politician Jo Cox accused him of 'spreading hatred'.

The furious backlash came after the 71-year-old President retweeted content posted by Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen. 

Labour MP Jo Cox was stabbed and shot outside her constituency office in Birstall, West Yorkshire, in June last year by a man who shouted 'Britain First'. 

The first video retweeted by Mr Trump purportedly shows a 'Muslim migrant' beating up a Dutch boy on crutches.

Mr Trump also retweeted a video of a Muslim man 'destroy(ing) a statue of Virgin Mary', and another where Ms Fransen wrote: 'Islamist mob pushed teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!' The provenance of the footage is unknown.
