Donald Trump apologises for re-tweeting hate group


Donald Trump has apologised for sharing anti-Muslim videos from hate group Britain First.

The US president said he didn’t know the far-right organisation were ‘horrible, racist people’ and admitted he shouldn’t have retweeted messages from them.

He made the apology during a TV interview with Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan.

Mr Trump said that he knew ‘nothing’ about the far-right group and was driven by his belief in fighting radical Islamic terror.

He said: ‘I don’t know who they are. I know nothing about them so I wouldn’t be doing that.

‘I am often the least racist person that anybody is going to meet. Certainly I wasn’t endorsing anybody.’

Speaking about the controversy over a planned UK state visit later this year, Mr Trump said: ‘I haven’t heard about banning.

‘But I think a lot of the people in your country like what I stand for – they respect what I stand for.’

And asked what he thought of those in the UK who disapproved of him. Mr Trump replied: ‘I don’t care.

‘It’s just one of those things. I don’t say anything because I don’t care.’

The full interview will be broadcast on ITV on Sunday night.
