The Council on American-Islamic Relations is condemning President Donald Trump for retweeting inflammatory videos purporting to show violence being committed by Muslims.

The group's executive director, Nihad Awad, says in a statement that Trump is "clearly telling members of his base that they should hate Islam and Muslims."

Awad says Trump's posts "amount to incitement to violence against American Muslims." Awad is calling on political and religious leaders to condemn Trump's tweets.

Awad says that on Twitter, the council has recorded 3,296 anti-Muslim incidents this year. He says "we haven't heard a peep from you. Some president."

Trump retweeted the videos from a far-right British politician.
