Trump nearly apologizes for retweeting 'horrible racist people'

US President Donald Trump has now publicly apologised for retweeting videos which were initially posted online by far-right group Britain First

Piers Morgan, who interviewed the US President, tweeted Trump had "publicly apologised for retweeting far-right group Britain First".

"Here's what's fair-if you're telling me they're disgusting people, awful racist people, I would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that".

In an interview with Piers Morgan - who is friends with the president - Trump said he did not want to cause "any difficulty" for the United Kingdom but stopped short of directly saying sorry. "I certainly apologize", Morgan tweeted that the president said.

"I know nothing about them. Certainly, I wasn't endorsing anybody", he added.

'I guess, again I'm in the United States, so I didn't read as much about it, perhaps it was a big story in Britain, perhaps it was a bit story in the UK.

"I know nothing about them", Trump told Morgan, who characterized Britain First as "basically a bunch of racists, fascists".

Trump went on to explain that he'd merely retweeted the videos because he is "a big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror". "It was a big story where you are, but it was not a big story where I am", Trump said.

Egypt's Sisi submits nomination papers for 2018 re-election bid
Earlier this month, former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq said he was dropping out due to his prolonged absence from Egypt. Shafiq also served as air force general before fleeing to the United Arab Emirates in 2012.

Fransen told Reuters she was "delighted" because Trump's retweets showed his shared goal of bringing awareness to "issues such as Islam", but press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that she didn't think Trump knew who Fransen was when he retweeted the videos - she was found guilty of religiously aggravated harassment in 2016 for verbally abusing a Mulim woman in a hijab.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May criticized the president saying Trump was "wrong" to send out the tweets.

So did Trump actually apologize?

Trump's official Twitter account retweeted a series of inflammatory anti-Muslim videos in November 2017.

Also, after white supremacist protesters rallied in Charlottesville, Virginia, a year ago and an anti-racism counter-protester was killed when a vehicle ploughed into a crowd, Trump said there were some "very fine people" among the protesters, even though they included KKK members and armed militia. I don't want to be involved with [these] people, but you're telling me about these people because I know nothing about these people'.

"I don't care" about potential protesters, Trump told Morgan in the morning show interview. We will come to your defence if anything should happen, which hopefully will never happen.

The full interview will air on ITV on Sunday evening.
