Cher has apologised to British people for President Donald Trump’s hateful retweets.

Trump faced criticism from Prime Minister Theresa May and MPs on both sides of the aisle after retweeting videos posted by far-right group Britain First’s deputy leader.

The posts from Jayda Fransen were vile anti-Muslim propaganda, but Trump was unapologetic.

Britain First attacked Blind Date earlier this year after the dating TV show publicised plans to air a groundbreaking LGBT episode.

“POLITICAL CORRECTNESS: BLIND DATE TO FEATURE FIRST-EVER LESBIAN ROUND TO TIE IN WITH LONDON PRIDE 2017!” the party’s Facebook page screamed above a now-defunct link.

Naturally, Cher – who will star in the new Mamma Mia! sequel – tore Trump apart.

She also pleaded for Brits not to judge all Americans by their controversial President.

In all-caps, she wrote: “I WOULD LIKE 2 APOLOGISE 2 BRITISH PEOPLE “.

“THE PERSON WHO OCCUPIES OUR WHITE HOUSE IS A DEMENTED RACIST‼️

“I’M NOT PROUD OF MY FEELINGS TOWARDS HIM, BUT GOD, I CAN’T BEAR 2 SEE OR HEAR HIM,” she added.

“HE’S AN INSUFFERABLE ‼️”

The clown emoji speaks volumes.

The Oscar-winning singer and actress also thanked the UK’s Parliament after US diplomats reportedly dropped plans for Trump to visit the country early next year.

“I’M PROUD PARLIAMENT STOOD UP TO HIM & RESCINDED HIS VISIT. ,” she wrote.

Trump tweeted directly at May – after mistakenly tweeting at a completely unrelated person with a different Twitter handle – to reprimand her for taking offence at him spreading hate.

The US President said: “Don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom.

“We are doing just fine!”

The US is not, in fact, doing just fine.

This week, 31-year-old Oklahoma native Brooklyn BreYanna Stevenson became the 27th trans person to be killed this year in the US.

It is now by far the most deadly year on record for trans people in the US.

Since taking office in January, Trump has faced an avalanche of criticism for his treatment of trans people.

In February, he revoked protections for trans students.

And in August, he announced a ban on trans people serving in the military.

Trump has also supported Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama who said last month that “the transgenders don’t have rights.”

Moore added that his Democratic Party opponent Doug Jones “believes in transgender bathrooms and transgenders in the military.

“I disagree with him 100 percent.”
