FACT CHECK: Is This a Video of UK Trump Supporters from June 2019?

A video supposedly showing hundreds of people chanting “We Love Trump” was also widely circulated on social media, often shared with the claim that the news media were refusing to report on this large crowd of Trump supporters. Facebook user James Johnson, the founder of NCFire, an anti-immigration group that has previously spread dubious information, captioned his version of the video: “Massive crowd in the UK chants “We Love Trump” (that’s funny, every report i see on TV has the SAME anti-Trump video and NOTHING about this pro-Trump video).”



Johnson’s video racked up more than 1 million views within a day of its initial posting. Another posting of that same video on Twitter racked up an additional 500,000 views:



The news media didn’t report on this crowd scene in June 2019 because the video was not taken in June 2019. The original was produced nearly a year earlier, in July 2018, and shows a mixture of Trump fans and supporters of Tommy Robinson, a right-wing activist who founded an anti-Muslim group:
