Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen has claimed Donald Trump  is "outraged" that she has been charged with using threatening and abusive language at a rally. 

She has also said that Trump sees "eye to eye" with her on issues such as immigration.

After the US President controversially retweeted three inflammatory videos posted on Twitter by Ms Fransen, she told News Shopper: "Donald Trump, who stands for free speech, which is enshrined in the US constitution, is outraged at the persecution and prosecution of an elected deputy leader of a British political party.

"I can say with some certainty that we see eye to eye on many issues including immigration."

Ms Fransen added: "I am delighted that the leader of the free world President Donald Trump has taken the time out to retweet three of my videos on Twitter as he has been made aware of my plight here in Britain."

Donald Trump's Twitter account shared anti-Muslim tweets from the Penge resident's account.

Three posts from Ms Fransen were retweeted from the account of Mr Trump, who has 43.6m Twitter followers.

All three of Ms Fransen's tweets were anti-Islamic and claimed to show attacks by Muslims.

The posts included unverified videos titled “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!” and “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!”

Ms Fransen, a high-profile member of the far right group, is on bail facing four charges of causing religiously aggravated harassment as part of a Kent Police investigation into the distribution of leaflets and the posting of online videos during a trial held at Canterbury Crown Court in May.

She will also appear in court in Northern Ireland in December charged with using threatening and abusive language in connection with a speech she made at an anti-terrorism demonstration in Belfast on August 6.

Ms Fransen, 31, leads Britain First with former Swanley councillor Paul Golding.

She has 53,000 followers on the social networking site.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

All three retweets sparked outrage from Twitter users, with one saying: "I had to double check that I hadn't clicked on a parody account." 

Brendan Cox, widower of MP Jo Cox who was murdered by a right-wing extremist, said: “Trump has legitimised the far right in his own country, now he’s trying to do it in ours. Spreading hatred has consequences & the President should be ashamed of himself.”

Paul Joseph Watson, the UK-based editor of far-right conspiracy website Infowars, said: “Yeah, someone might want to tell whoever is running Trump’s Twitter account this morning that retweeting Britain First is not great optics.”

A tweet from Fransen’s account, which is verified by Twitter, appeared to celebrate the retweets.

She said: “The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has retweeted three of deputy leader Jayda Fransen’s Twitter videos! Donald Trump himself has retweeted these videos and has around 44 million followers! God bless you Trump! God bless America!”

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has voice his opinion on what happened. 

He said: "Britain first is a vile, hate-fuelled organisation whose views should be condemned, not amplified."

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said Britain First sought to divide communities through its use of "hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions".

"It is wrong for the president to have done this," the spokesman said.

News Shopper has contacted Mr Trump for further comment. He has not yet replied.
