McMaster: Jihadis are really irreligious criminals who use a pervertedinterpretation of religion



WALLACE: The president retweeted videos this week from a fringe anti-Muslim group called Britain First that purported to show Muslims, in some cases, inaccurately, Muslim immigrants committing acts of violence.

British Prime Minister May spoke out against the president, sending these tweets. Here?s what she had to say.

I mean, this is really a conflict that involves
