    May and Muslim Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, lambasted Trump for retweeting a series of videos from Britain First leader Jayda Fransen.

    Robinson told Breitbart London Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam – also Muslim – that he was “embarrassed” by the British prime minister, adding that she may have scuppered a good Brexit deal with the US.

    “I feel completely embarrassed and I want the American public to understand that the majority of British people do not feel this way; this is an agenda being pushed by the media. We don’t feel this way at all,” Robinson said.

    The former English Defence League leader said repressive Islamist regimes and Islamic terrorism were the real problems, and not the “far right”.

    “Our prime minister watches a video of a man getting thrown off a rooftop and a statue of the Virgin Mary being smashed on the floor… and she’s talking about the far right,” Robinson told Kassam.

    “Two days ago… two men were arrested in the late preparations of a sophisticated terror attack. Why is our country not up in arms about that? It is happening every week.

    “In the last seven months, we have had four terror attacks where children were killed, women stabbed in the throat, vehicular attacks… rather than Theresa May talking about this, she is on her high horse talking about tweets.”

    “I think what Trump has done here is shone a light on the hypocrisy and what we’re up against,” Robinson said.

    According to Robinson, “We live in a post-free speech era. It’s a facade that we have free speech. Anyone who steps outside the status quo will have the full force of the media, the state, and the establishment thrown at them to destroy them.”

    “I faced nine years of harassment, persecution, and arrests for speaking about Islam,” he said. “No matter what your politics are, we are in Britain and we have freedom of speech and freedom of assembly and we should be free to do that.”

    “The country I thought I lived in when I started my activism is different to the country I thought we lived in.”

    As leader of the EDL, Robinson had worked tirelessly to expose the Muslim grooming gangs in the UK, but was vilified for his efforts.

    He comes from Luton, just north of London, an Islamist hotspot. A decade ago, there was only one mosque in Luton, Robinson says, and today there are at least thirty in a population of around 200 000. This has led to a two-tier policing system, he says.

    In the last seven months Britain has had to deal with four terrorist attacks and security services prevented at least eight planned attacks.

    Trump’s visit to the UK has been dropped following his retweets of a Britain First member, a diplomat revealed.

    The working visit to the UK by the President had been planned for January 2018 but US diplomats has cancelled his tour.

    May publicly criticised Trump for sharing the videos. It was revealed by diplomats that the January plan had been abandoned amid the Twitter spat with no new date set.

    A US diplomat told The Telegraph: “The idea of a visit has obviously been floated, but not December and not January. I would not expect a Trump visit in January.”

    May said that Trump sharing the videos of Britain First had “legitimised” the group. Speaking on a visit to Jordan the British leader said: “I think that we must all take seriously the threat that far-Right groups pose, both in terms of the terrorist threat that is posed by those groups and the necessity of dealing with extremist material which is far-Right as well.

    “I have commented in the past on issues in the United States on this matter.

    “In the United Kingdom we take the far-Right very seriously and that is why we ensure that we deal with these threats and this extremism wherever it comes and whatever its source.”
