The United States President, Donald Trump, on November 29, retweeted three fake videos with captions ‘Video: Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!’, ‘Video: Muslim destroys a statue of Virgin Mary!’, and ‘Video: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!’.
In the first video, a boy was pushed off a roof after several attempts by those around him to bring him down by throwing stones at him.
Reacting to the tweet, Harrison Calvert said the video “It’s actually a bunch of Egypt nationalists throwing a kid off a building after he was swearing at and making threats against the leader of Egypt in 2013”.
The second video had a man speaking Arabic and holding a relic of Virgin Mary. After talking, he threw the relic on the ground breaking it into pieces.
Reacting, a twitter user, Marge said “there’s no logical reason for DT to retweet this, except to further religious divisiveness among Americans”.
In the last video, a boy was seen hitting another boy on crutches, but Trump tagged it as ‘Video: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!’.
A twitter user, Catherine Love, reacting said “there is no proof this was a Muslim because he isn’t! Do you believe everything you see on here?
Meanwhile, MSNBC’s Host, Joe Scarborough said, during campaign people close to Donald Trump informed him that the President was in an early stage of dementia.
According to him, Trump is completely detached from reality.
Trump had earlier tweeted:
So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!

Scarborough replied with this:
Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump’s bizarre tweets. He is not well. https://t.co/XJhW5ZHNfs
