President Trump defended his treatment of women in an interview that aired on British television Sunday, explaining why he did not consider himself a feminist. I think people have to go out. and they have to win. I am for women, I am for men, I am for everyone.
Donald Trump has suggested he is more popular in the United Kingdom than many think, telling ITV he gets "so much fanmail" from the country.
In the build-up to his apology, Trump emphasised that he had only recently become aware of the nature of the group, and that stories about the group in the US are less as popular than in Britain.
Trump said the controversy was not a big story in the U.S. and said he retweeted the videos "because I am a big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror".
It's remarkable that Trump went as far as he did toward an apology at all, given his usual refusal to ever back down in the face of criticism. In the interview aired on Friday, Trump said he loved Britain very much and got along well with May.
"As you know, before this happened, I would be there a lot. If we don't evolve, there's something missing", before professing that he has "tremendous respect for women". "I know nothing about them", Trump said.
Morgan, who has spoken of his friendship with Trump numerous times, wrote about the interview at the weekend on Daily Mail, saying the US President seemed "startled" to have to answer the question. "Women have the best unemployment numbers that they've had in 17 years", he said.
Throughout the interview, Trump repeatedly stated his love for the United Kingdom, which comes in the midst of rumored turmoil between the United States and Great Britain.
When Morgan pointed out that Markle had labelled the billionaire "divisive" and a "misogynist", he said: "Well, I still hope they're happy". "You know, for a couple of years, you have a very strong lack of being able to do things".
"I support her, I support a lot of what she does and a lot of what she says".
"I would have had a different attitude", he said of the talks, which have followed Britain's June 2016 referendum vote to leave the European Union, and will continue through to its planned departure in March 2019. "I eat really the finest - some of the finest chefs in the world".
