White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders is defending President Donald Trump's posting of videos purporting to show violence against Muslims, saying he wants to "promote strong borders and strong national security."

Sanders said Wednesday that she was not sure how Trump found the videos, which he retweeted from the leader of an extreme far-right British group.

Asked if the president had a responsibility to verify the content, Sanders said: "Whether it's a real video, the threat is real and that is what the president is talking about."

She says she had not discussed with the president how it could impact his relationship with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

British opposition politicians are demanding the government revoke an invitation to U.S. President Donald Trump after he retweeted videos posted by a leader of extreme far-right group Britain First.
