Donald Trump Apologises For Retweeting 'Horrible Racist' Britain First Videos

The United States President Donald Trump on Friday apologised for re-tweeting racist videos by a British far-right group, claiming he didn't know its antecedents. "I knew nothing about that", Trump said, referring to Britain First. I am for women, I am for men, I am for everyone.

In a new interview with Piers Morgan, Trump said that he is not a feminist, rather he is for everyone.

"I knew nothing about them", Trump said of Britain First, adding: "If you're telling me that they're awful people, frightful racist people, I would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that".

Donald Trump has apologised for retweeting "horrible racist people" Britain First in an interview with broadcaster Piers Morgan.

In a recapping his interview with the president, Morgan detailed the moment he asked Trump the feminist question.

"Here's what's fair, if you're telling me they're awful people, disgusting racist people I would certainly apologise if you would like me to do that", Mr Trump said.

Morgan continued: "He tells me: 'No, I wouldn't say I'm a feminist".

"Well, I'll tell you".

Trump caused widespread outrage in Britain last November when he re-tweeted three videos that purported to show brutal acts committed by Islamic extremists.

"They love my sense of security, they love what I'm saying about many different things".

"I don't say anything", he said.

As you can probably guess, not all Arsenal fans were too keen on the idea of Trump being associated with their football club.

He described the country - where his family owns two golf resorts - as a "very special place" during an interview with Piers Morgan for ITV.

He was asked about women who consider his to be sexist and misogynistic, and Trump said, "Well, I am for them. and I think a lot of them understand that".

"I have tremendous respect for women", he followed up.

'I think people have to go out, they have to go out and really do it, and they have to win.

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

At that White House meeting previous year, May invited Trump for an official state visit to Britain, which traditionally would include pomp, parades and time with Queen Elizabeth II.

Both leaders agreed on Thursday to arrange a visit for later this year, although the White House said it would be a "working visit", suggesting it may not be the pomp-filled trip initially proposed.
