What Hasn't Trump Apologized For?

Sep 12, 2016

For someone so insistent on demanding apologies, Donald Trump, at least by our count, hasn’t apologized for anything.

Here are a few inflammatory, offensive, and flat-out racist things that the man “who like[s] to not regret anything” has yet to apologize for:

1. Maligning immigrants as “rapists” who are “bringing drugs,…crime.”

Refusal to apologize: “I love the Mexican people, but no apology because everything I said is 100 percent correct. All you have to do is read the newspapers.”

2. Mocking a reporter with a disability. 

Refusal to apologize: “I don’t take that back because the person was groveling in terms — if you read his statements about well, did you say this and did you write this paragraph, he was really grasping for straws.” 

3. Disparaging prisoners of war and Senator John McCain for getting “captured.”

Refusal to apologize: “No, not at all…I got a standing ovation, the biggest ovation they had all weekend, by far. When I left the room, it was a total standing ovation. It was wonderful to see. Nobody was insulted.”

4. Calling an American-born federal judge “a Mexican” and declaring him inherently biased because of his Mexican heritage.

Refusal to apologize: “It is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued a categorical attack against people of Mexican heritage.”

5. Targeting and publicly attacking a Gold Star family.

Refusal to apologize: “All I did is respond and I will always respond.”

6. Launching sexist attacks on Megyn Kelly.

Refusal to apologize: “There’s nothing to apologize [for].”
