Donald Trump is ready to apologize for anti-Muslim retweets

Donald Trump apologises for retweeting anti-Muslim hate videos from Britain First

But in a "Good Morning Britain" interview with Piers Morgan during his trip to Davos this week, Trump apparently apologized after all. "This was a depiction of radical Islamic terror", said of the retweets. He then added: "I know nothing about them".

"Certainly I wasn't endorsing anybody".

"Perhaps it was a big story in Britain, perhaps it was a big story in the UK, but in the United States it wasn't a big story. I know nothing about them and I know nothing about them today other than I read a little bit", Trump said.

"I am a big believer in fighting radical, Islamic terror".

In the interview, Trump said he knew nothing about the Britain First-a group accused of inciting violence and whose leader, Jayda Fransen is on trial for inciting hate in Great Britian-when he retweeted three videos that included titles like, "VIDEO: Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!"

During the 2016 presidential race, Trump campaigned for "a total and complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States on the pretext of preventing terrorist attacks.

Morgan, a longtime friend of Trump's, was showered with praise and rebukes on social media following the interview scoop.




'When you do those retweets it can cause problems, because you never know who's doing it to start off with'.

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.

During the interview, which will air on Sunday, Jan. 28, Trump also said he has a very good relationship with Prime Minister May despite what people think. 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. "Okay? I don't know anything about what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists ... you wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about".

Trump sparked outrage in Britain when he shared the anti-Muslim videos last November and became embroiled in a public spat with British PM Theresa May who criticised him for the retweet.

"I support her, I support a lot of what she does and a lot of what she says".

His chat with Morgan was the first global TV interview with Donald Trump since he took office.

He said previous year: 'I genuinely like him.
