Donald Trump apologises for retweeting anti-Muslim hate videos from Britain First

US President Donald Trump has apologised for retweeting a string of anti-Muslim hate videos posted by the British far-right.

Trump used an appearance on UK television channel ITV to acknowledge that Britain First, the party whose deputy leader he hugely amplified by retweeting three posts, were “horrible, racist people.”

He told Piers Morgan, the host of ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” and a personal friend, that he had known little about the group and was willing to apologise for the incident, which took place in late November.

A clip of the exchange was aired on Friday 26th January, and it is due to be broadcast in full on Sunday 28th at 10 p.m. UK time.
