In a rare, open feud with allies, U.S. President Donald Trump suggested U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to focus on fight against menacing Radical Islamic Terrorism after she criticized the leader’s retweeting of far-right videos posted by a British group on Twitter.

Trump, who has drawn flak for amplifying extremist voices, fueled an unnecessary controversy by using Twitter as a “cudgel for score-settling” at the expense of diplomatic ties, writes the BBC.

The White House justified the sharing of “inflammatory” videos, saying that the Republican president was drawing attention to security issues, notes Reuters
