Trump retweeted Jack Posobiec, who is well-known for promoting debunked "alt-right" conspiracy theories.

"Dick Durbin called Trump racist for wanting to end chain migration. Here's a video of Dick Durbin calling for an end to chain migration," the tweet read.

The brief clip is a cut from a 30-minute September 14, 2010  Senate floor speech by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) arguing in favor of approving the Dream Act, not calling for an end to chain migration.

Army Twitter account 'likes' actress's tweet mocking Trump comments

  Army Twitter account 'likes' actress's tweet mocking Trump comments <p>The U.S. Army's official Twitter account "liked" a tweet on Saturday from actress Mindy Kaling apparently mocking President Trump's claim that he's "really smart."</p>It wasn't immediately clear if an employee running the Army's Twitter had liked the tweets or if the account had been broken into. The Army did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday retweeted three graphic anti-Islamic videos by the deputy leader of one of the U.K.'s most far - right groups, drawing condemnation from Britain's prime minister's office.

Donald Trump slammed for retweeting far - right activist just hours after condemning racists over Charlottesville. President condemned racists as 'evil' in White House speech amid mounting protests over his response to Charlottesville violence.

The section of the clip cut by Prosobiec shows Durbin reading a description of the Dream Act and specific measures to limit family migration, or so-called chain migration.

Durbin was among the senators attending a meeting with Trump, during which the president referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "shithole countries."

Durbin confirmed Trump's comments to reporters.

Among the debunked conspiracy theories that Posobiec has promoted is "Pizzagate," which claimed without evidence that a pedophile ring was being run out of a D.C. pizzeria with the involvement of top Democrats and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

The theory led to a man firing a gun at the pizzeria last year.

Posobiec has also promoted conspiracy theory that the Democratic National Committee was behind the murder of staffer Seth Rich, which has been proven to be false.

This isn't Trump's first time retweeting the far-right figure. He also shared a tweet by Posobiec about shootings in Chicago, as Trump was facing backlash for his comments about the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.
