President Trump "ready to apologise" for retweeting anti-Muslim videos

Trump says it's a 'false rumor' he isn't friendly with Theresa May

US President Donald Trump has said he is prepared to apologise for retweeting inflammatory videos by the far-right Britain First group.

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".

"I know nothing about them, I don't want to be involved with people [like that]", Trump said to Morgan. "This was a depiction of radical Islamic terror", said of the retweets.

"Just so you understand, I don't know anything about David Duke, okay?"

'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".

"He didn't apologize, he said, 'If what you're telling me is that they are racists, I would be prepared to apologize, ' - which isn't exactly an apology", said Golding.

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

Trump explains he did not know who Britain First was when he shared their posts, while adding he is the "least racist person you'll ever meet".

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. "I know nothing about white supremacists".

Donald Trump's offer to apologise for retweeting propaganda from a British far-right group and his claim not to know anything about them is part of a curious pattern of behaviour.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May criticized the president saying Trump was "wrong" to send out the tweets.

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

He did, however, say that Trump was reluctant to apologize, the Daily Mail reports.

In his interview with Trump, Morgan said that the videos were unverified and that at least one of them was "not what it seemed". "I think a lot of the people in your country like what I stand for, I do stand for tough borders".

'We will come to your defence if anything should happen, which hopefully will never happen. He had discussed Duke in multiple interviews over the years, calling him "a bigot, a racist, a problem".

Although his press secretary defended the tweets at the time, the President has told Piers Morgan that he is ready to apologise in an exclusive interview to be aired this weekend.
