President Donald Trump on Wednesday retweeted three graphic anti-Islamic videos by the deputy leader of one of the U.K.’s most far-right groups.
The retweets did not include any Trump commentary.
The tweets were posted by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First, whose members are banned from mosques in England and Wales.
The group was formed in 2011 by former members of the British National Party, a far-right, nationalist party. Its members campaign against multiculturalism and what they see as the Islamization of the country.
The group claims to have a Christian ideology, conducting what they call “Christian patrols.” Its members have attracted attention by entering several mosques around the country, telling members of the congregation to reject Islam. These actions led to the group being banned from mosques in parts of the country.
Britain First responded quickly to the Trump retweets, saying “GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP.”
The mosque ban is not the only brush with the law that the group has had.
Its leader, Paul Golding, and Fransen were charged earlier this year with causing religiously aggravated harassment after the pair distributed leaflets in a county in southeast England during a trial of three Muslim men and a teenager.
This month, Fransen was charged with using threatening and abusive language during a speech at a rally in Northern Ireland.
