Another day, another terrible Donald Trump retweet. This time, however, the president of the United States has decided to re-tweet right-wing pundit Katie Hopkins, and people are outraged.

In a tweet shared on Wednesday night, the controversial commentator listed the names of four European politicians, all of whom have a track record of discriminatory and populist views.

In the tweet, which Trump shared on Thursday, she wrote:

God-willing / jihadi-failing I am going to be alive to see Trump in the White House Boris in Number 10 Netanyahu building Israel Bolsanaro, Salvini, Orban, Kaczyński, & the Right Minded bringing strength in depth What a time to be alive The fightback by proud nations is on

Of the four European leaders that Hopkins mentioned, Bolsanaro, a populist leader of Brazil, is a vocal opponent to same-sex marriage, abortion, and immigration, reports the Huffington Post.

Matteo Salvini, the deputy prime minister of Italy, called for the expulsion of Roma people from the country; Viktor Orban, the authoritarian prime minister of Hungary, has restricted free speech and suggested that white Europeans are being replaced by migrants from Africa and the Middle East; and Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who is a polish minister, ha called LGBT people a 'threat' to Poland.

Yes, they're a very pleasant bunch.

It goes without saying that other social media users were less than impressed by the endorsement.

While the occasional Twitter user agreed with the sentiment.

But most were appalled.
