British Prime Minister Theresa May hotly condemned U.S. President Donald Trump last Thursday, when he re-tweeted three videos from a Facebook group called “Britain First,” which demonstrated the dangers of islamic terrorism.
Tuesday, UK’s Sky News reported that an Islamic terror plot to assassinate PM May in London has been thwarted, and two men have been arrested – Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, of Birmingham, and Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, of north London.
The men were reportedly arrested by officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command on Tuesday, Nov. 28, and are charged for a plan that was “in essence an extreme Islamist suicide plot against Downing Street.”
The prime minister’s office is located at 10 Downing Street.
Both men are schedule to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday, the police announcement said.
Just two days after the Islamic terrorists plotting to assassinate May were arrested, President Trump tweeted the videos warning of Islamic terrorism, which drew considerable backlash from the left – and from May herself.
Leaders in the UK were outraged over the tweets, calling Trump racist, and demanding his scheduled visit to the UK be cancelled.
“I’m very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do. Britain First is a hateful organization. It seeks to spread mistrust and division in our communities. It stands against common British decency,” May said, as she criticized Trump for sharing the islamic terror videos.
Trump had tweeted back in response to May’s criticism, “.@Theresa_May, 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!”
.@Theresa_May, 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!
