Donald Trump's retweets which shared violent and graphic videos of alleged violence involving Muslims has sparked outrage and attracted condemnation.

So much so that a spokesperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May accused the president of "peddling likes and stoking tensions."

Trump shared out three tweets by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of the far-right group Britain First.

The graphic tweets include video footage captioned "Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!"

A second tweet was captioned "Muslim destroys statue of Virgin Mary", while a third read "Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches".

The original tweets come from the deputy leader of Britain First, Jayda Fransen, who was arrested last week over a speech she made in Belfast in the summer.

Britain First have in the past come under fire for sharing videos that were determined to be fake.

But the White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders defended Trump's actions saying that "whether it's a real video, the threat is real. His goal is to promote strong border security and strong national security."

But questions have been raised about all three of the videos which Trump shared out.

The first video which Trump shared out read "Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches".

But the Dutch website Dumpery, debunked this story as being from a video in May 2017, despite the caption, that featured neither a Muslim or a migrant.

The second video was of "Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!"

This video has been in circulation since 2013 and was first published on the website of the Iranian state broadcaster Al-Alam.

The broadcaster explained that the video showed Islamic State militants raiding the Syrian city of Idlib and smashing up places of worship.

The final video that Trump shared out was entitled "Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!"

This video was first reported on by France24 during the summer of 2013 in the wake of political unrest in Egypt.

The man who died was named locally as Hamada Badr, his father said that there was no evidence that suggest that Muslims per se were behind the attack or that it was a religiously motivated attack.

All three videos have been met with scepticism in various circles, which is what has prompted leaders such as Theresa May to accuse him of spreading "lies."
