U.S. President Donald Trump said in an interview with the UK ITV broadcaster, partially released on Friday, that he is prepared to apologise for his retweets of UK right-wing group’s anti-Muslim videos.

In November, Trump retweeted several unverified videos, originally posted on Twitter by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of the far-right Britain First movement, which claimed to show violent acts committed by what the group considered Islamists.

“If you’re telling me they’re horrible racist people, I would certainly apologise if you would like me to do that. I knew nothing about that,” Trump said, referring to Britain First.

Trump emphasised that he was a great supporter of the UK, adding that he did not want to cause any difficulty for the country.

The U.S. president explained that he had retweeted the videos because he is a “big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror,” which was depicted on those videos.

Trump’s retweets of Britain First’s videos provoked criticism by many UK and U.S. politicians and public figures.

Particularly, UK Prime Minister Theresa May called Trump’s move to retweet the videos the wrong thing to do.

    Interesting! I thought some Nigerians were happy when this moron was elected! Yes he is the first certified moron to occupy the White House. His Secretary of State called him a moron and did not retract it. So have several White House staffers! The damage he has done to American institutions will take at least 8 years of statesmanship rule that had been the norm here to reverse.

    Now that he is stopping “chain migration ” aka filing for parents and siblings, how is that initial excitement working for the Nigerians that hailed his election. Especially after saving and spending to give birth to your ” Obama”. Now your “Obama” won’t be able to file for you if republicans have their way, nor his or her Nigerian born siblings. You better protest for good governance and return of loots. The western world is stopping migration completely. You will be helping your descendants if you start asking looters to create jobs like Dangote. Your kids can school here but most will have to return as H1 visas have been reduced, and are now by lottery and they now ask them to go home and stamp it. Some with job offers who returned to stamp are waiting for Eleke Crescent 4 months after. Let’s fix Nigeria and if we cannot recover corrupt money, let’s protest government to mandate its use in setting up manufacturing jobs for the returning kids!

    You thought he was a Christian but he can’t quote one verse of the Bible and refers to second Corinthians as “two Corinthians”. Be careful what you wish for. Some thought their friends and family who haven’t been sending what they expect will be deported, not knowing it’s not easy to deport illegal immigrants who are quiet and law abiding and are already here as America is massive. You also cannot deport a naturalized citizen unless they commit treason or something really egregious happens and Nigeria is just the size of a state, Texas! Since that’s expensive, the republican focus is on future migration so keep your children’s blue passport well. They may never be able to file for you that is if they don’t introduce the whispers of cancellation for children who were not born to legal immigrants and who don’t live here for a stipulated period of time. No curses on my comments, I have my passport for both countries with my entire family. I’m blessed beyond any curse. I just spoke the truth on the whispers and goings on here! BN please post my comment. They will still give you visa? Just keep shopping t the malls and slaying with it on IG and calling it vacation! They like the money. As for this guy, Everyone calls him a moron, even the saner republicans! No big deal.
