Donald Trump has retweeted videos posted by Katie Hopkins supporting his recent attacks on four US congresswomen.

The president shared two messages featuring Hopkins defending his leadership.

Hopkins also took aim at Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Democrat Congresswomen, known as “the squad”.

Hopkins’ original tweet read: “How I wish we had such leadership in the UK.

“Don’t like this country? Don’t like what it gives you? Then leave.”

“Trump does not give offence. #TheSquad choose to take it. #TheSquad need to make better decisions.”

Minutes later, the firebrand president shared a second post from Hopkins, again weighing in on London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Hopkins’ Tweet read: “The Met Police. Officers says they have lost control of London streets.

“Apparently they lost control of their twitter account too."

But Mr Trump commented: “With the incompetent Mayor of London, you will never have safe streets!

The President previously told Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib to “go back” to their home countries - even though all are citizens and three were born in the US.

Despite the Democratic-led House of Representatives voting to condemn Trump's "racist comments”, the President doubled down and continued his attack.

It comes after the Metropolitan Police's Twitter account was targeted by hackers who posted multiple bizarre and unauthorised messages.

Late on Friday night, a number of posts were sent from the force's Twitter account, which has more than 1.22 million followers, calling for the release of drill rap artist Digga D.
