I suppose there's a lot (or not a lot?) to say about @realDonaldTrump's early morning re-tweetstorm of a far-right British politician's anti-Muslim propaganda. But just to provide a little more context on one video (because there was none): 1/3
The video is four years old. It's from Alexandria, Egypt in 2013, shortly after the military overthrew the country's first elected president (an Islamist, Mohamed Morsi) in a coup, and protest and violence had broken out in multiple cities across the country (2/3)
Here is a @hrw report from the time that links to the original video and also offers more facts and context (!!), if you're curious about the surrounding landscape at the time: hrw.org/news/2013/07/0… (3/3)
