Donald Trump's Twitter account has retweeted three anti-Muslim videos first shared by a UK far-right group leader.

The three tweets by Britain First's Jayda Fransen feature unverified videos which purport to show Muslims criminal committing acts of violence.

In one, a group of men can be seen pushing a boy off a roof. Another shows a man destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary, with a third showing a group of men beating a boy on crutches. 

All three videos were retweeted without comment by Mr Trump's Twitter account, which has more than 40 million followers. 

The US president followed the inflammatory tweets with another slamming CNN 

Earlier this year, Ms Fransen was convicted of harassing a Muslim woman after she verbally abused her for wearing a hijab.
