Donald Trump has apologised for retweeting Britain First after it has emerged he will eventually be visiting the UK sometime this year. The move came after he appeared on Piers Morgan’s talk show and was confronted by the famous UK TV personality (which many of us Brits say with air quotes when discussing Piers Morgan because it’s basically a euphemism for kn*b) over the controversial retweet which happened late last year.
Interestingly enough when UK Prime Minister Theresa May called Donald Trump out saying that he was “wrong” to endorse the message sent by Britain First and that “British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right” Donald Trump responded with a pretty sharp retort.
“Theresa @theresamay, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!” he tweeted, though only after he had initially tweeted the wrong Theresa May.
Now Donald Trump has apologised for the retweet saying,
“If you are telling me they’re horrible people, horrible, racist people, I would certainly apologise if you’d like me to do that.”
The apology after it emerged yesterday that Trump will be visiting the UK although he has been yo-yoing over the decision for quite a while now. At the heart of the indecision is that Trump is pretty sure that his arrival in the UK will be marred by heavy protests, something he isn’t too keen on enduring apparently.
