Donald Trump has been condemned from around the world after he retweeted several anti-Muslim messages from the deputy leader of Britain First, Jayda Fransen.

The president shared three tweets on Wednesday morning which included graphic footage captioned "Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!"

Around the world, reaction to Trump's apparent support of the far-right group attracted condemnation.

One of his critics is British journalist Piers Morgan, who is one of just 45 people that Trump follows on Twitter.

Morgan wrote: "Good morning, Mr President - 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."

The former Labour cabinet minister David Lammy said that Trump was "not welcome in my country and my city (London)".

The Former United States Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper described the tweets as "bizarre and disturbing" and that it could haven all kinds of "ripple effects."

The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called on the government to call out Trump over the tweets, he said: "I hope our Government will condemn far-right retweets by Donald Trump. They are abhorrent, dangerous and a threat to our society."

Brendan Cox, the husband of the former MP Jo Cox who was murdered by Tommy Mair who shouted "Britain First" before shooting her, 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."

Carl Bildt, the Co-Chair European Council on Foreign Relations said that described Trump's actions as "stunning".
