Trump apologizes for retweeting anti-Muslim videos

President Trump has said he is ready to apologise for retweeting anti-Muslim videos from far right group Britain First.

"If you're telling me these are terrible people, disgusting racist people, I would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that", Trump said in an excerpt released by "Good Morning Britain" on Friday. "I don't want to be involved with people... but you're telling me about these people, 'cause I know nothing about these people", Trump said. "Certainly I wasn't endorsing anybody", Trump said, denying he knew anything about the background of those he was retweeting.

'I don't know who they are, I know nothing about them, so I wouldn't be doing that. Now, consider Trump's response in 2016 to being asked to publicly condemn the KKK and Duke, after the latter endorsed his presidential bid: "I don't know anything about David Duke".

"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". If you're telling me they're terrible racist people.

Trump was less apologetic about tweeting the content of the unverified videos, saying he was a "big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror".

The incident caused a huge headache for British Prime Minister Theresa May, who said that Trump was "wrong" to send out the tweets, further souring the "special relationship" between Britain and the United States following a series of spats. "I know nothing about white supremacists".

Last November Trump retweeted messages on Twitter by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of the anti-Islam British political party Britain First.

"I can tell you I have a very good relationship with your Prime Minister", Trump said.

"Then here's what's fair", Trump responded.

So did Trump actually apologize?

"Heartfelt", tweeted one social media user. The interview was newsworthy, Morgan told anyone who would listen, since, according to him, it contained something rare: an apology from Trump.

May said in a statement that it was "wrong for the president to have done this", but she didn't rescind her offer for Trump to visit.

Also, after white supremacist protesters rallied in Charlottesville, Virginia, previous year and an anti-racism counter-protester was killed when a auto ploughed into a crowd, Trump said there were some "very fine people" among the protesters, even though they included KKK members and armed militia. "We will come to your defense should anything happen, which hopefully will never happen". The full interview is to be broadcast on Sunday.
