    US President Donald Trump once again became the focus of ire on social media when he retweeted three videos featuring acts of violence perpetrated by alleged Muslims that were posted by a notorious British right-wing activist.

    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.

    One person responding to the first retweet also claimed that the ​video originates from a "Dutch click bait site".

    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.

    Others however pointed out that retweeting the material posted by this particular group may not be a good idea for Trump.
