Friday, January 26, 2018

US president Donald Trump has said he is prepared to apologize for retweeting posts from a British far-right group. In an interview with ITV's Piers Morgan, Mr. Trump said he knew "nothing" about Britain First before sharing three of its videos in November. In the teaser, the US president said sorry for retweeting the UK's anti-Muslim videos which sparked outrage in Britain. He said: "If you're telling me they're horrible racist people, I would certainly apologize if you would like me to do that."

Like he fake "apologized" to Obama for his years of birther nonsense and then continued to question the legitimacy of Obama's birth certificate whenever he could?

1. Trump retweeted misleading bigoted videos because presumably he agreed with their bigoted message. Trump does not deny the validity of the content of the videos.
2. Trump considered apologizing for retweeting message from known racists. Doesn't actually apologize. Doesn't explain why he's following said racists on twitter.

Trump is acknowledging that he is an ignorant racist who gets his "news" from other ignorant racists and the only reason he would even consider apologizing is because of the optics of getting called out. Of course he didn't actually apologize.

It will never happen.

He will refuse to apologize.

Then he will call it "Fake News" if anyone brings it up.

LOL. Trump has never apologized to anyone or anything. He will"prepare" until his sheep morph history into their believing Obama and/or Hillary did the tweeting. Thank GOD we found about Hillary's private server, eh? It sure saved us from a competent, mentally stable President!
