Theresa May 'not afraid' to criticise Donald Trump

Theresa May 'not afraid' to criticise Donald Trump”

A British woman who Donald Trump tweeted, wrongly including her Twitter name instead of the Prime Minister's, has described how she was on the end of relentless tweets after the mistake.

Ten months later, that relationship looks decidedly strained.

The screw-up came after the real Theresa May condemned Trump for retweeting anti-Muslim videos from a British far-right extremist. They also urged May's government to revoke an invitation for Trump to visit Britain as a guest of Queen Elizabeth II.

The furore erupted after Trump, who has nearly 44 million Twitter followers, on Wednesday retweeted three anti-Muslim videos posted by a leader of the far-right group Britain First. The tiny group regularly posts inflammatory videos purporting to show Muslims engaged in acts of violence, but without providing context or supporting information.

Britain's ambassador to the United States is understood to have conveyed to the White House the government's concerns about the retweets.

When asked does it matter if the video is fake, she said the reporters were "focusing on the wrong thing".

On his first attempt, he went after the wrong Theresa May.

She said she had been deluged with tweets from Donald Trump's followers - despite only having six of her own.

In the House of Commons yesterday, lawmakers criticised Trump in unusually blunt language.

Labour MP Paul Flynn said Trump should be "charged with inciting racial hatred" if he came to the United Kingdom, while fellow Labour MP Naz Shah suggested the "commander-in-tweet" should be placed on the list of those banned from entering the country for promoting "the hate-filled ideology of fascism".

"The importance of the relationship between our countries and the unparalleled sharing of intelligence between our countries is vital", she said.
