Of the three tweets, Trump shared video footage of alleged Muslim extremists throwing people off buildings, breaking a Virgin Mary statue, and of a Muslim immigrant beating a boy on crutches.
Though many, shocked, quickly called out Trump over his offensive behavior, including UK Prime Minister Theresa May, not all say it was bad move for the commander-in-chief.
Speaking to Sputnik Radio's Loud and Clear with Brian Becker and John Kiriakou, Lionel, a syndicated radio personality, says 45's move, politically speaking, was great for his followers.
In fact, Lionel says, they're basically cheering him on.
"There are people who are applauding him," Lionel told Becker and Kiriakou. "There are people talking about ‘why isn't anybody talking about how Muslims are these people going after Christians.'"
"There are people in this country who say ‘finally somebody who is speaking our language, a man who is making America Great Again,'" Lionel quipped. "There are people in this country who found his predecessor to be boring."
According to Lionel, Trump, if asked, would say that his tweets "[helped] the United States of America by reaffirming the fact that we stand up against hate and violence."
