US President Donald Trump retaliated to criticism from UK Prime Minister Theresa May about his anti-Muslim retweets over Twitter, except he mentioned someone named Theresa Scrivener instead of the UK leader.
"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!" Trump said on Twitter Wednesday.
Trump retweeted videos of Muslim extremists pushing people off buildings, breaking Virgin Mary statues, and beating immigrants, which Downing Street labeled fuel for "hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions." Trump had retweeted Jayda Fransen, a leader of the "Britain First" movement.
"There are people who are applauding him," radio host Lionel told. "There are people talking about 'why isn't anybody talking about how Muslims are these people going after Christians."

On his second attempt, after he deleted the tweet, Trump got the right May.
