Earlier today President Trump re-tweeted some videos showing radical Islamism and behavior of their terroristic followers. The videos originated from a twitter account of a U.K. citizen. Prime Minister Theresa May took exception to the sunlight:

Moments ago, President Trump responded (again, via Twitter):
The hidden part of this back-and-forth is the strategic two-layer cover this is providing PM Theresa May. Here’s what media won’t point out:
#1) Prime Minister May’s government is currently in a furnace within the U.K. over the ongoing Brexit issues. A criticism from Trump ends up bolstering her support as tenuous allies will now rally to her PC defense.
#2) Prime Minister May’s public defense of European political correctness, well received by the far-left within Britain, when contrast against the internal Islamic threat – will also allow her to take more aggressive action against the local Islamists.
No-one in the U.K. wants an attack where horrible POTUS Trump can say: “Toldyaso” etc.
Brilliant…. and horrible.
Oh, the vulgarian…
