Piers Morgan, who interviewed the US President, tweeted Trump had "publicly apologised for retweeting far-right group Britain First".

He offered only this as a conciliatory gesture: "If you are telling me they're horrible people, horrible, racist people, I would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that", Trump said. "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.

When Morgan quickly pointed out that at least one of the videos was unverified, Trump said, "I didn't do it, I did a retweet".

"Just so you understand, I don't know anything about David Duke, okay?"

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.

'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.

In addition, all existing 1 GB per day packs will be enhanced to 1.5 GB per day and 1.5 GB per day packs to 2 GB per day. Airtel, on the other hand, offers 1GB daily data, and validity of 84 days, up from 70 days that it used to offer before.

After Morgan told Trump that he wanted the British people to get to know "the real you", and suggested that an apology "would go a long way", the president stammered out something less than contrition.

Trump said that he retweeted the videos because he is a "big believer in fighting Islamic terror".

Mr Trump said he did not mean to endorse "horrible, racist people" and that his re-tweeting of Britain First had not been a big story in the US. "I know nothing about white supremacists".

Donald Trump is ready to apologize for retweeting anti-Muslim videos in November, reports BBC.

"I can tell you I have a very good relationship with your Prime Minister", Trump said.

Trump even offered a reason as to why he shared the posts.

"Then here's what's fair", Trump responded.

Britain First has used social media to spread anti-immigrant messages, posting videos of their provocative stunts on YouTube and Facebook. "I know nothing about them so I wouldn't be doing that".
