President Donald Trump said in a British television interview Friday that he was ready to apologize for retweeting anti-Muslim videos from a far-right British group, and he reiterated his assertions that he is not a racist.

"Here's what's fair, if you're telling me they're awful racist people, I would certainly apologize if you would like me to do that". "I don't want to be involved with people... but you're telling me about these people, 'cause I know nothing about these people", Trump said. "I certainly apologize", Morgan tweeted that the president said. "But you're telling me about these people 'cause I know nothing about these people". "I am the least racist person that anybody is going to meet".

Trump explained that he retweeted the posts because he is "a big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror". Second, Trump said, the fact that he had taken part in the propaganda campaign of a group of British racists was hardly worth mentioning, since it "was not a big story" in the United States at the time.

During the 2016 presidential race, Trump campaigned for "a total and complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States on the pretext of preventing terrorist attacks.

"I support her, I support a lot of what she does and a lot of what she says and I support you militarily very much".

Morgan wasted no time in asking Trump about an incident a year ago in which the POTUS shared videos from a far-right British anti-Muslim party.

Trump also said he has a "very good" relationship with Prime Minister Theresa May and added that the USA "will come to your defence is anything should happen".

Trump responded, "They are, but this was - I didn't do it".

Britain First has used social media to spread anti-immigrant messages, posting videos of their provocative stunts on YouTube and Facebook.

Trump even offered a reason as to why he shared the posts. "I think a lot of the people in your country like what I stand for, I do stand for tough borders".

So did Trump actually apologize?

In his interview with Trump, Morgan said that the videos were unverified and that at least one of them was "not what it seemed".

'We will come to your defence if anything should happen, which hopefully will never happen.

The full interview will air in Britain on Sunday.

"I support her, I support a lot of what she does and a lot of what she says".
