Trump says "would apologise" for sharing British…

Trump APOLOGISES for Britain First retweet: US president tells MailOnline's Piers Morgan 'it was done because I'm a big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror'

Trump professed to have known nothing about Britain First at the time that he retweeted the group's videos, and, as Morgan pressed for an apology, the president insisted that he was still unfamiliar with Britain First because the retweets had not drawn much attention in the United States and he therefore had no reason to learn about the group's ideology.

Trump said he "would certainly apologize" - framing his mea culpa as a hypothetical - "if you're telling me they're horrible people, horrible, racist people".

He said he had made the retweets because he was concerned about the threat posed by radical Islamic extremists.

"I know nothing about them". Perhaps it was a big story in the U.K., but in the United States it wasn't a big story. "I don´t want to be involved with people, but you're telling me about these people because I know nothing about these people".

Trump was less apologetic about tweeting the content of the unverified videos, saying he was a "big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror", repeating his relentless attacks on Islam and demonization of Muslims.

Mr Trump said he did not mean to endorse "horrible, racist people" and that his re-tweeting of Britain First had not been a big story in the US.

"Heartfelt", tweeted one social media user.

Donald Trump is ready to apologize for retweeting anti-Muslim videos in November, reports BBC.

U.S. President Donald Trump shake hands with Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May during the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland January 25, 2018.

'When you do those retweets it can cause problems, because you never know who's doing it to start off with'. Even Fox News host Laura Ingraham, one of Trump's staunchest defenders, brought them up when interviewing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on the night of November 29. "You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about".

President Trump just came as close as he maybe ever has to admitting a mistake and apologizing for his actions - and yet still somehow managed to fall short of an actual apology.

"I don't care" about potential protesters, Trump told Morgan in the morning show interview.

He said a year ago: 'I genuinely like him.

The piece with, a known supporter of, is the president's first worldwide television interview since taking office and will air on Sunday.
