Donald Trump Apologises For Sharing Anti-Muslim Videos on Twitter

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

Trump caused an outcry in Britain when, in November, he retweeted videos from a British far-right group supposedly showing Islamist violence.

He said he was unaware of Britain First's politics, saying: "If you are telling me they're horrible people, horrible, racist people, I would certainly apologise if you'd like me to do that".

"I don't want to cause any difficulty for your country", Trump said in his interview with ITV's Piers Morgan. It might seem like nit-picking to point this out, but imagine if a United Kingdom politician had retweeted David Duke, the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, then only offered to say sorry after weeks had gone by. "But you're telling me about these people 'cause I know nothing about these people". "Certainly, I wasn't endorsing anybody", he added.

Trump said that he retweeted the videos because he is a "big believer in fighting Islamic terror". "It was a big story where you are, but it was not a big story where I am", Trump said.

While Morgan engaged in some creative editing of the president's remarks to characterize them as an apology, the whole exchange closely echoed Trump's weird attempt, in early 2016, to claim that he had never heard of American white supremacists like David Duke or the Ku Klux Klan.

The president caused widespread outrage in the United Kingdom and prompted a rare rebuke from British Prime Minister Theresa May in November after he shared the videos, which purported to show violent acts committed by Islamic extremists.

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

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

Trump cancelled a ceremony to open the new U.S. Embassy in London past year amid reports that his visit would spark protests.

"I don't care" about potential protesters, Trump told Morgan in the morning show interview. The videos, which are unverified, showed Muslims attacking people and smashing a statue of the Virgin Mary. explained to Mr. Moran that he did not know the group was affiliated with radical and racist views. The full interview will be broadcast Sunday, January 28.

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