 Theresa May Calls Trump's Anti-Muslim Retweets 'Wrong'

British Prime Minister Theresa May British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday condemned President Donald Trump as “wrong” for retweeting anti-Muslim videos, reviving tensions between the two governments.

“It is wrong for the President to have done this,” Mays office said in response to the retweeted videos, initially posted by British far-right leader Jayda Fransen.

Mays rebuke adds strain to what had been one of the worlds strongest modern alliances. It came after members of the British Parliament spoke out against Trump for spreading the videos, with several calling his actions “disgraceful.”

British lawmaker Chuka Umunna renewed requests that Trumps invitation to visit the U.K. next year be withdrawn. 

“I dont think the president of the United States, a president that has not only promoted bigotry, misogyny and racism in his own country, I dont think he is welcome here,” Umunna told Sky News.

“Somebody in his position, doing what he has done and said, not only in his own country but now getting involved in the debate here ― he is normalizing hatred,” Umunna added.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan in June asked that Trumps visit be canceled, after the president criticized Khans response to a London terror attack. May bit back at Trump at the time, saying the mayor was “doing a good job and its wrong to say anything else.”
