Trump's quasi-apology for retweeting anti-Muslim videos is anything but

That doesn't mean that Morgan has always supported Trump's political decisions however. Piers condemned his friend in November when he urged him to'stop this madness after Trump retweeted Britain First

Instead of then going on to actually offer an apology, Trump returned to excusing himself, adding, "I know nothing about them".

'I guess, again I'm in the United States, so I didn't read as much about it, perhaps it was a big story in Britain, perhaps it was a bit story in the UK.

Trump's misrepresentation of press coverage could be explained by his allergy to saying "sorry", but it is worth remembering that "I know nothing about these people" is a near-exact repetition of a line he delivered in February 2016 when declining to reject the endorsement of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke and white-supremacist groups.

"We actually have a very good relationship, although a lot of people think we don't", he told Good Morning Britain. "We will come to your defense should anything happen, which hopefully will never happen".

"He didn't apologize, he said, 'If what you're telling me is that they are racists, I would be prepared to apologize, ' - which isn't exactly an apology", said Golding. "But I am a tremendous supporter of the United Kingdom". The interview was newsworthy, Morgan told anyone who would listen, since, according to him, it contained something rare: an apology from Trump. He had discussed Duke in multiple interviews over the years, calling him "a bigot, a racist, a problem".

Officials are discussing whether Trump will be given a state visit, which means he will be hosted by Queen Elizabeth, and when exactly it will take place, the source said.

The piece with, a known supporter of, is the president's first global television interview since taking office and will air on Sunday.
