Trump ready to apologize for retweeting anti-Muslim videos

Trump ready to apologize for retweeting anti-Muslim videos

He also claimed that the retweets were not a "big story" in the US, despite the fact that major American news outlets covered the retweets and May's concern that Trump would boost the far-right British group.

But in a "Good Morning Britain" interview with Piers Morgan during his trip to Davos this week, Trump apparently apologized after all. "If you're telling me they're awful people, disgusting racist people I would certainly apologize if you would like me to do that".

According to an article previewing the interview, due to be broadcast on Sunday, he said: "I don't want to cause any difficulty for your country. I am the least racist person that anybody is going to meet", he added.

Trump appeared to defend sharing the video, saying he knows nothing about the group.

In November, Trump came under fire for retweeting videos originally published by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of the UK's far-right Britain First movement. The video of a Muslim immigrant assaulting a Dutch boy on crutches was red flagged by police in the Netherlands who said the assaulter was neither Muslim nor an immigrant.

An apology, of sorts, from Donald Trump, and that doesn't happen often. "And so you're asking me a question that I'm supposed to be talking about people that I know nothing about". I don't say anything you know why?

Shah said Revol was spotted Friday attempting to climb down while Mackiewicz appeared to be crawling due to frostbite. Nanga Parbat obtained its " Killer Mountain " nickname because of the number of lives it has claimed over the years.

As for why he pushed them out into the world, Trump said it was because he is "a big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror". "I know nothing about them so I wouldn't be doing that", Trump replied.

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

The leaders met at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday, where Trump said rumors of the pair not getting along are false.

Most importantly, however, Trump argued that he could not be held responsible for promoting the hate-filled views of the British extremists he had boosted on Twitter because he had no way of knowing that the obviously racist tweets he had chosen to share had been posted by racists. "I know nothing about them and I know nothing about them today other than I read a little bit".

Many in Britain felt that Trump was nearly gloating over terrorist attacks in London and Manchester.
