Trump says would apologise for sharing far right videos

U.S. President Donald Trump said he had not intended to cause offence in Britain by sharing anti-Muslim videos originally posted by a leader of a far-right fringe group and that he would apologise if such people were horrible racists.

Trump told ITV’s Good Morning Britain show, which aired on Friday (January 26), he knew nothing about the group.

Trump sparked outrage in Britain when he shared the anti-Muslim videos last November and became embroiled in a public spat with British PM Theresa May who criticised him for the retweet.

When pressed on whether he would apologize for his retweet, Trump said that if the group was made up of racists then he would.

Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of anti-immigration Britain First, posted the videos which she said showed a group of people who were Muslims beating a teenage boy to death, battering a boy on crutches and destroying a Christian statue.

Trump also said he loved Britain very much and got along well with May.
