The deputy leader of Britain First who was recently retweeted by President Trump before being banned by Twitter is reportedly facing six charges in Northern Ireland for "attempting to stir up hatred" against Muslims.

From The Daily Mail:
The deputy leader of Britain First who was once retweeted by the US President hit out at 'trumped up' charges as she arrived in Northern Ireland today.

Jayda Fransen, three of whose messages were sent out by Donald Trump, will face two separate trials in Belfast over claims she attempted to stir up religious hatred.

The first set of charges against the 31-year-old relate to a 'Northern Ireland Against Terrorism' rally at Belfast City Hall on August 6 last year.

But she also faces trial for posting a video online which was filmed at a peace wall in Belfast when she attended her last court hearing in the country.

Before a appearance before magistrates in today, she wrote online: 'En route to Belfast, I'm due to appear in court for the second time for simply making a speech and posting a video about a peace wall! Three more trumped up charges from the corrupt British establishment!'

In court, the 31-year-old was told that the she will face trial over the first set of allegations on April 6 this year.

[...]The charges include using threatening language or behaviour with intent to stir up hatred or provoke a breach of the peace, and sending menacing or grossly offensive messages by a public electronic communications network.

Police claim she made anti-Islamic comments by urged people to 'rise up against the biggest threat to the entire world' in an incident posted on Britain First's Facebook page.
"Out of court, now with a total of 6 charges!" Fransen wrote on Gab Tuesday. "Simply for giving a speech outside Belfast City Hall and filming a video at a peace wall. Free speech in Britain is DEAD."

In unrelated news, a Muslim couple was just found guilty in the UK of plotting to carry out a "Christmas jihad massacre" after meeting on an online dating site.
