An old video of protesters chanting "Donald Trump, we love you" has resurfaced in the wake of the London attack. It's being passed off by Trump supporters as a recent recording.

Hyperpartisan outlets mislabeled the video as being filmed after the attack on Sunday, but that's not true.

In fact, the post is from a March 18 counter-protest to the March Against Racism in London.

London today! "DONALD TRUMP WE LOVE YOU!"

The Gateway Pundit, which often publishes inaccurate stories, was seemingly the first to pick up the tweet. Its story already has 5,500 shares, reactions, and comments on Facebook.
