Group’s material ‘old and misleading’
All three of the videos retweeted by Donald Trump from far-right activist and deputy leader of Britain First Jayda Fransen are more than six months old, and two date back as early as 2013.
The videos, tweeted by Fransen on Tuesday night and yesterday morning and which the US President shared with his 43.6 million followers, fit with an established behaviour from Britain First of sharing old videos with misleading captions and no information about date or context.
Ms Fransen and Britain First are regularly accused of sharing misleading videos and information on social media which targets Muslims.
In July, a Press Association investigation found at least 10 misleading videos posted by the group to Twitter and Facebook over a two-month period.
Despite being alerted to the misleading nature of those videos, Twitter and Facebook declined to remove them.
Jayda Fransen, Britain First leader Paul Golding and the official Britain First accounts are all verified on Facebook and Twitter.
