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.
Good to know the supposed POTUS is retweeting racist TV personalities.
