Trump Again Promotes Far-Right Commentator Who Once Called Migrants ‘Cockroaches’
President Donald Trump once again promoted controversial British far-right commentator Katie Hopkins on Twitter Saturday morning.
The nipple-height Mayor of Londonistan has NEVER been so unpopular. He has MINUS approval ratings because we are stab-city.

In early July, Trump retweeted Hopkins’ praise of a number of far-right politicians including Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro and Hungary’s Viktor Orban:
Later in the month, Trump used one of Hopkins’ tweets to defend himself from accusations that he’d encouraged supporters to chant “Send her back” about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) at a rally in North Carolina:
As you can see, I did nothing to lead people on, nor was I particularly happy with their chant. Just a very big and patriotic crowd. They love the USA! https://t.co/6IVKEffNnq
