After US President Donald Trump caused uproar among the Twitter audience by retweeting three videos shared by Jayda Fransen, deputy head of a far-right group called British First, UK Prime Minister Theresa May chastised the US leader while also stating that the relations between the two countries will endure the debacle.
"I'm very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do," May said during a press conference, adding that "we're not afraid to say where we think the US got it wrong."
According to AFP, May opted to direct her ire at British First, stating that the group "seeks to spread division and mistrust among our communities."
Meanwhile, several of her fellow MPs called to cancel the upcoming state visit by the US president, while Conservative Party MP Peter Bone wondered aloud whether the world would become a better place if May manages to persuade Trump to delete his account.
While replying to Bone’s statement, Home Secretary Amber Rudd also remarked that "it’s interesting to note his advice regarding Twitter accounts, and I’m sure many of us might share his view."
