MORE retweeting an image that showed two Democratic leaders edited into Muslim clothing with a backdrop of an Iranian flag after it prompted allegations of Islamophobia.
Trump on Monday morning shared the image from Twitter user @D0wn_Under, who tweeted it with the caption “The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue.”
Activists and former government officials took to Twitter to condemn the tweet as anti-Muslim.
Sleeping Giants, a liberal activist organization, called on Twitter to remove the tweet for violating the platform’s conduct policy.
But lawmakers in the party have not praised or mourned Soleimani as Trump and the White House have claimed they have.
