Donald Trump apologises for re-tweeting Britain First

When Morgan quickly pointed out that at least one of the videos was unverified, Trump said, "I didn't do it, I did a retweet".

British leaders - including Prime Minister Theresa May - immediately condemned Trump for retweeting propaganda from a group many Britons consider racist. Perhaps it was a big story in the U.K., but in the United States it wasn't a big story. Now, consider Trump's response in 2016 to being asked to publicly condemn the KKK and Duke, after the latter endorsed his presidential bid: "I don't know anything about David Duke".

Trump said that he retweeted the videos because he is a "big believer in fighting Islamic terror".

"They had a couple of depictions of radical Islamic terror".

Speaking on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said he knew nothing about Britain First, a fringe group which opposes what it calls the "Islamization" of the U.K. The president added that he was not endorsing the group.

"Of course I didn't know that".

Something else, the judges said they will receive an arrangement with an end goal to keep the May 15 essential race on track. Chief Justice Thomas Saylor dissented from the majority, saying he'd have put the case on hold while awaiting a U.S.

"If you're telling me they're disgusting racist people, I would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that", he told Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan on Thursday during an interview on conducted in Davos, Switzerland, on the sidelines of the annual World Economic Forum. "This was a depiction of radical Islamic terror", he said. "She's been doing a very good job".

President Donald Trump has told a British television show that he didn't know a far-right group in the country was run by "horrible, racist people" when he retweeted their messages last November. "We actually have a very good relationship, although a lot of people think we don´t". We will come to your defence if anything should happen, which hopefully will never happen.

"I don't care" about potential protesters, Trump told Morgan in the morning show interview.

"I support her, I support a lot of what she does and a lot of what she says". "I know nothing about them, and I know nothing about them today other than I read a little bit", Trump told Morgan. He had discussed Duke in multiple interviews over the years, calling him "a bigot, a racist, a problem". The full interview will be broadcast Sunday, January 28.

Officials are discussing whether Trump will be given a state visit, which means he will be hosted by Queen Elizabeth, and when exactly it will take place, the source said.
