President Trump has said he is ready to apologise for retweeting anti-Muslim videos from far right group Britain First.
Trump tweeted a succession of Islamaphobic videos from the Deputy Leader of Britain First in November in a move that was condemned by World leaders, including Theresa May.
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.
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.”
Morgan described the group, which presents itself as a political party but is widely seen as an extremist group targeting Muslims, as “racist.” Trump denied any knowledge of the group when he shared three videos from Jayda Francen, its deputy leader.
“Of course I didn’t know that. I know nothing about them and I know nothing about them today other than I read a little bit,” Trump said.
“I don’t know who they are. I know nothing about them so I wouldn’t be doing that.”
His statement that he is “the least racist person that anybody is going to meet” was also thrown in.
