SPLC statement on President Trump's anti-Muslim tweets

President Trump has made his anti-Muslim sentiments no secret in the past through harmful executive orders like the Muslim ban.

This morning, he retweeted false and inflammatory information from Britain First, an anti-Muslim hate group whose leaders have been prosecuted for incitement and hate crimes.

Over the previous two years, the period coinciding with Trump’s xenophobic campaign, the number of anti-Muslim hate groups in the U.S. nearly tripled and hate crimes against Muslims doubled.

Trump continues to play a very dangerous game by fanning the flames of anti-Muslim hate.
