The White House said Wednesday it does not matter that U.S. President Donald Trump is a liar, knowingly spreads lies and retweets fake hate videos.



White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the media that whether the president spreads false videos is not important because the “threat is real.”

“Whether it is a real video or not. I think you are focusing on the wrong thing. The threat is real. That is what the president is talking about, that is what the president is focused on dealing with, those real threats and those are real no matter how you look at it,” Huckabee Sanders said.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was responding to suggestions that the U.S. President was deliberately spreading false information after he retweeted allegedly fake videos posted online by far-right British ultra nationalist Jayda Fransen purportedly showing ‘Muslims’ doing terrible things.






None of the videos retweeted by the president and posted by Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First, a hate group that advocates against Muslim immigrants in Britain, have been verified by British authorities.

Fransen has been convicted of hate crimes in the past and British law enforcement authorities said one of the videos retweeted by the U.S. President that purportedly shows a Muslim immigrant was false. The person in the video is a Dutch citizen, according to the authorities.

Trump’s retweets have caused outrage in Britain with lawmakers calling for the visit by Trump to the United Kingdom next year be rescinded. British Prime Minister Theresa May, fearing an even bigger political mess refused to cancel the invitation.






May’s official spokesman said it is wrong for Trump to retweet hateful materials. “It is wrong for the president to have done this,” he said, adding that “the invitation for a state visit (to Trump) has been extended and accepted. Further details will be announced in due course.”

“Whether it is a real video or not. I think you are focusing on the wrong thing. The threat is real. That is what the president is talking about, that is what the president is focused on dealing with, those real threats and those are real no matter how you look at it,” Huckabee Sanders said.

In the United States, Republican Party leaders have kept quiet on the issue hoping that the uproar will blow past quickly.

White House spokeswoman Huckabee Sanders said Trump retweeted the videos to start a conversation on U.S. immigration and border security, two of Trump’s favorite subjects because they rile up his far-right base.

It is not clear if Trump who has shown lack of awareness on many issues was aware that the videos may be fake before he decided to retweet them.




The first video Trump retweeted shows a ‘Muslim immigrant’ beating up a Dutch boy on crutches and a spokesman for Monnickendam Police in England where the incident happened told British tabloid MailOnline that “the boy in the video attacking a boy on crutches is a Dutch national.”

Trump also retweeted a video of a Muslim man “destroying a statue of Virgin Mary.” The third video Trump retweeted had a caption by Fransen saying “Islamic mob pushed teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”

Fransen was convicted last year of religiously aggravated harassment after she confronted a Muslim woman named Sumayyah Sharpe in Luton, England and told her that Muslim men force their women to wear hijab to avoid rape “because they cannot control their sexual urges.”
