American President Donald Trump said he would publicly apologize for retweeting three anti-Muslims videos.

The retweets which were made back in November, were originally tweeted by the deputy leader of the U.K.’s far-right group ‘Britain First.’

However Trump didn’t include his commentary in the retweets, but he drew widespread criticism, including from the British Prime Minister’s office.

Speaking to British broadcaster ITV on Thursday at the World Economic Forum, Trump said he didn't know who the group was, and that he didn't want to cause any difficulty.

"If you are telling me they're horrible people, horrible, racist people, I would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that," he said.

"I am often the least racist person that anybody is going to meet. Certainly I wasn't endorsing anybody," he added.
