Earlier on Wednesday, the US President shared three tweets featuring examples of aggressive behavior by alleged Muslims.
The first tweet features an alleged Muslim migrant beating up a Dutch boy on crutches, according to the video's description.
The second depicts an alleged Muslim smashing an effigy of St. Mary to bits.
The third contains a footage of what appears to be an Islamist mob throwing a teenager off a building's roof, according to the description.
The president's actions immediately evoked a barrage of criticism from the Twitter audience.
Oh look. Trump is race baiting. Again.— Establishment Guy (@Politicalprozac) 29 ноября 2017 г.
The fact that the president retweeted this bigot is disgusting.— Brian Krassenstein🐬 (@krassenstein) 29 ноября 2017 г.
This is a new low for the office of the President.— John Balfe (@JohnBalfe) 29 ноября 2017 г.
One person responding to the first retweet also claimed that the video originates from a "Dutch click bait site".
This is a Dutch click bait site. They post most of the time bc clickbait videos with untrue titles….Unbelievable that the president of the US is retweeting this bs….— Black Bike Media (@BlackBike_Media) 29 ноября 2017 г.
The videos that Trump retweeted were originally posted by Jayda Fransen, deputy head of a British right-wing political organization Britain First, who praised the president's actions.
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!

Others however pointed out that retweeting the material posted by this particular group may not be a good idea for Trump.
Yeah, someone might want to tell whoever is running Trump's Twitter account this morning that retweeting Britain First is not great optics. 🤔— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) 29 ноября 2017 г.
Jayda Fransen is a wretched human being and no matter what expectations one has for him, it's revolting and actually shocking that Trump is re-tweeting multiple hate-mongering videos from her of random Muslims doing bad things.— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) 29 ноября 2017 г.
