Trump retweets prominent U.K. Islamophobe, "send her back" supporter
President Trump retweeted a controversial British columnist Katie Hopkins on Saturday as she promoted the "send her back" chants that erupted during his Wednesday evening rally in North Carolina.
Why it matters: After a week of attacking 4 U.S. congresswomen of color, calling for them to "go back," and a similar racist chant at his campaign rally, the president shared the comments of a woman who has long-spewed hateful, Islamophobic speech with his 62 million followers.
This is not the first time Trump circulated Hopkins' words on Twitter. He retweeted her mid-June attack on London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
