Recently Donald Trump on Twitter shared 3 tweets from Britain First member Jayla Fransen, (one of which supposedly a mock tweet) but what has got people rolling their heads was Trump sharing the tweets from her anyway.
I direct you to a paper which does point out problems with Britain First as an organisation: http://costaconnected.com/what-it-really-means-when-you-like-or-share-content-from-britain-first/
Theresa May disagreed with Donald Trump on posting the tweets from Britain First. But will Trump be banned from entering the United Kingdom.
Here's what I have to say on the matter.
Of all the groups Donald Trump could have picked to share on Twitter to warn about Radical Islam, why Britain First, specifically Jayla Fransen? There are surely better options like Milo Yiannopolis and Ben Shapiro who themselves don't lean toward Britain First whom the president could have shared videos or tweets of. The left is going to have a field day with Trump tweeting this from a vile organisation and lends credibility to the lie and false narrative that Trump is a white supremacist, something he himself is not (Neither is Britain First for that matter but they are white nationalists, which doesn't change how bad they are).
See Dave Cullen's video on 8 lies about Donald Trump: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J13UBjmoPfs&t=203s
Unlike the pretentious virtue signalling leftists (not all leftists), I'm going to give Donald Trump the benefit of the doubt with his tweeting of Jayla Fransen. I don't think Trump shared the tweet with evil or malicious intent. His concern is about the radical Muslim terrorists who are causing trouble for other people in the UK. It's an issue that is close to home for him I think, especially the trouble his country have had to put up with. That doesn't excuse sharing the tweets of Fransen but it does go far in explaining why. I just wish Trump shared a tweet from someone else. I am hoping Trump may learn from this and retract the tweets.
Donald Trump is not a hateful bigot, careless sometimes and a bit abrasive but he is not hateful. I sense no malicious intent in sharing the tweets in question. As said before there are better right leaning individuals he could have shared. If Trump were to look into Britain First's background, I am sure he would be disgusted with their rhetoric. While Trump may not be a saint from a biblical standpoint, in comparison to former President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe and North Korea's president Kim Jong Un, from a human standpoint Trump is a good guy.
Again, I am giving Trump the benefit of the doubt, I cannot get into his mind and tell you what he thinks and what I can infer is that it is this is well intentioned but very severely misguided act on his part.
Remember the travel ban on 7 Muslim countries in the Middle East (mentioned in Dave Cullen's video above), he only issued a 90 ban so that investigation into where the terrorist attacks were coming from. Does this mean Donald Trump hates Muslims? No, but certainly sharing a tweet from Britain First is going to put a dent in the point that he doesn't. Does Theresa May have a legitimate concern about Trump's tweets? Yes. Should we ban Donald Trump from the country because of what has happened, No, However, if Donald Trump knowingly is promoting hate speech, he should not be allowed into the country. If anyone should be banned from the country, it's Anjem Choudary and Omar Bakri, not Robert Spencer and least of all, Donald Trump. Is this what we have come to? If Donald Trump made an honest mistake and won't admit it, that's one thing but if he is knowingly sharing hate speech, that is a problem and Trump needs to deal with that and retract the tweets.
Mr President, please if you are reading this, do not share any tweet from Britain First or anyone affiliated with them, you only damage your reputation and allow your detractors to smear you further, something you have condemned the left, including CNN for doing in the past. You are giving ammunition to your detractors to further incriminate you.
