Piers Morgan rips Trump for sharing videos by ‘disgustingly racist far-right extremists’
British commentator Piers Morgan on Wednesday blasted President Trump for sharing videos from “disgustingly racist far-right extremists” after Trump retweeted videos that claim to show Muslims engaging in violent acts.
“What the hell are you doing retweeting a bunch of unverified videos by Britain First, a bunch of disgustingly racist far-right extremists? Please STOP this madness & undo your retweets,” he tweeted.
Good morning, Mr President @realDonaldTrump – what the hell are you doing retweeting a bunch of unverified videos by Britain First, a bunch of disgustingly racist far-right extremists?
Please STOP this madness & undo your retweets.

Morgan’s tweet comes after Trump sparked fierce condemnation for sharing the videos posted by an official with the ultranationalist Britain First political party.
The first video retweeted by the president appears to show a young man attacking another man who is on crutches, with the caption “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!”
Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of the Britain First, first tweeted the videos.
Britain First is often accused of having an anti-Muslim bias.
Fransen has previously been found guilty of religiously aggravated harassment for verbally abusing a Muslim woman.
Piers has repeatedly criticized Trump, previously calling him a “president paranoid snowflake.”
A top editor at InfoWars, a conspiracy website that avidly supports the president, has also publicly criticized Trump choosing to share the videos on the social media platform.
