May delivered a rare public admonishment of an American president, declaring that Trump was “wrong” to share the videos, which she said were posted online by a “hateful” British far-right group, Britain First.
“I’m very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do. Britain First is a hateful organization. It seeks to spread mistrust and division in our communities. It stands against common British decency,” she said on Nov. 30 while in Amman, Jordan.
Trump’s posts included videos titled “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!” and “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!”
But Trump, as he often does, fired back — and he didn’t mince words with the leader of America’s longtime ally.
So fast forward a week — actually, less than a week. A terror plot to assassinate May — a plot, it might be noted, hatched by Islamic terrorists — was foiled by British authorities, British papers reported.
Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, from north London, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, from southeast Birmingham, were arrested. The Metropolitan police said they had been charged “with the intention of committing acts of terrorism” and they with “engaging in conduct in preparation for giving effect to that intention,” The Guardian reported.
