An English woman says she is awaiting an apology from Donald Trump after he accidentally tweeted to her account while trying to get the attention of the British prime minister.

Trump was defending his retweet of far-right anti-Muslim videos when he reached 41-year-old Theresa May Scrivener, a woman from Bognor who had six followers when the mistake occurred. She's since been bombarded by reporters asking about her similarity to the PM.

She said: "Our profiles are completely different. She runs the country, I'm a mum from Bognor.

"I'm just waiting for a call from the White House with an apology. I'm just glad he was not contacting me to say he was going to war with North Korea."
