US President Donald Trump's recent controversial flurry of tweets and retweets have once again fuelled calls for his immediate resignation on Twitter with people using the viral hashtag #OnTheDayTrumpResigns.

Trump retweeted three unverified videos on Wednesday, 29 November, by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of far-right group Britain First, that purported to show Muslims committing acts of violence. The posts immediately triggered an uproar among lawmakers in the US and UK.

The White House defended the president's retweets saying "the threat is real", regardless of whether the videos are real or not.

In a sharp rebuke, the British government said Trump was "wrong" to retweet the series of videos and condemned Britain First over its "hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions".

"British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right, which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents – decency, tolerance and respect," British Prime Minister Theresa May's office said in a statement. "It is wrong for the president to have done this."

Trump later lashed out at May in a tweet, saying, "Theresa @theresamay, don't focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!" However, he tweeted to the wrong Theresa May account on Twitter. Within minutes, he deleted the tweet and reposted it with the right handle @Theresa_May.

Trump later continued his Twitter tirade with attacks on Hillary Clinton, the Democrats, his predecessor Barack Obama and pushed his tax cut legislation.

In light of Trump's latest tweetstorm, Twitter erupted with fervent calls for his immediate resignation with the viral hashtag #OnTheDayTrumpResigns along with a slew of comments and memes.

Many taunted the president over his numerous controversial policies, statements and failings since taking office – from the immigration ban to the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling and possible collusion between his team and Moscow.

Others discussed the reaction they would have to his leaving the White House.

"#OnTheDayTrumpResigns America will be American again! Muslims will feel safe again! Native Americans will feel respected again! Dreamers will Dream Again! America will be whole again!" one Twitter user wrote.

"Hopefully #OnTheDayTrumpResigns we can return to leadership & normal time when: Paedophiles are not praised. Racist jokes are not acceptable at WH podium. Nazis are not good people. Military widows are respected. Russian collusion is a big f**king deal."

"I'll cry. Same as when he won the election. #OntheDayTrumpResigns," one user said. Another said, "The rest of the free world will collectively breathe a sigh of relief."
