U.S. President Donald Trump fired back at British Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday over her criticism of his retweeting of anti-Muslim videos, saying she should focus on terrorism in Britain. 

"Theresa @theresamay, don't focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine," Trump tweeted. 

The Twitter handle Trump initially included in his tweet was not that of the British leader. 

Trump retweeted a series of shocking anti-Muslim videos posted by a far-right British politician Wednesday morning, sparking swift and searing responses in the U.K. The videos were first posted by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of the far-right group Britain First. 

Negative responses included one from May's spokesperson, who said "It was wrong for the president to have done this."
