US President Donald Trump apologises for anti-Muslim retweets

Prime News, International, Davos (Switzerland), January 26:-  United States President Donald Trump has apologised for retweeting three anti-Muslim videos, which were originally posted by the deputy leader of one of the United Kingdom’s most far-right groups.

Trump had retweeted the tweets of Britain First’s Jayda Fransen in November.

Speaking to the UK broadcaster ITV on Thursday at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Trump said, “If you are telling me they’re horrible people, horrible, racist people, I would certainly apologise if you’d like me to do that.”

“I am often the least racist person that anybody is going to meet. Certainly, I wasn’t endorsing anybody”, he added.

The US President drew widespread condemnation, including from the British Prime Minister’s office for the retweets.
