'I would certainly apologize' for retweeting British anti-Muslim videos

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

The world has learned by now that Trump's Twitter feed knows no bounds.

Trump cancelled a ceremony to open the new U.S. Embassy in London previous year amid reports that his visit would spark protests.

During the interview, which will air on Sunday, Jan. 28, Trump also said he has a very good relationship with Prime Minister May despite what people think. Outrage ensued, especially from the United Kingdom - many members of the British government demanded an apology.

"I know nothing about them".

"If you're telling me they're terrible 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.

The videos Trump retweeted are no longer up on his timeline, but only because the account behind them was suspended by Twitter, not because the president removed them.


"Says the world's biggest liar and self-appointed "least" racist person you'll ever meet", added another about Trump's responses.

First, at least one of the videos was fake; reports quickly emerged showing that the perpetrator in the video about the Dutch boy is apparently neither Muslim nor a migrant.

Morgan, who actually tweeted at Trump the day he posted the videos to "Please STOP this madness and undo your retweets", classified the president's words as a public apology.

"They had a couple of depictions of radical Islamic terror", Trump said. However, the Dutch Embassy in the USA said that the Britain First's description of what occurred was inaccurate and that the perpetrator was born and raised in the Netherlands.

He said: 'I know nothing about them and I know nothing about them today. It's nearly as if we are being lulled into a sinister new mindset.

In the interview, Trump said he knew nothing about the Britain First-a group accused of inciting violence and whose leader, Jayda Fransen is on trial for inciting hate in Great Britian-when he retweeted three videos that included titles like, "VIDEO: Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!" 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'.
