President Trump patched up the ‘special relationship’ with the UK at Davos by throwing Britain First under the bus and denouncing them as horrible racists:
“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.
“If you are telling me they’re horrible people, horrible, racist people, I would certainly apologise if you’d like me to do that,” he told Morgan.
The interview, held in Davos, will be broadcast on 28 January at 22:00 GMT.
The president’s sharing of the controversial videos to his 40 million followers sparked a Twitter row with the UK prime minister, who criticised the move.
“I’m very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do,” Mrs May said, prompting Mr Trump to instruct the PM to focus on “terrorism” in the UK instead. …
“I know nothing about them, I don’t want to be involved with people [like that],” Mr Trump told Morgan. …
Mr Trump told Morgan: “Here’s what’s fair – if you’re telling me they’re horrible people, horrible racist people, I would certainly apologise if you’d like me to do that.”
He also said the controversy was not a big story in the US. …”
It is bad enough we aren’t getting the ‘nationalist populist’ policies that we were promised. It appears President Trump is going to be pressured into taking back the tweets now too.
