I respect anyone that can man-up and admit their failings, their limitations and offer an apology (of sorts) for any personal pain suffered due to past comments. Especially a POTUS candidate with no political experience. This does not change the way I feel about the goose, but it goes a long way towards me coming to a point where I start to take him and his imperfections more seriously.



Trump said, “As you know, I am not a politician. I have worked in business, creating a great company, created lots of jobs and rebuilding neighborhoods my entire adult life. I’ve never wanted to learn the language of the insiders, and I’ve never been politically correct – it takes far too much time, truthfully. It takes far too much time and can often make more difficult to achieve ultimate victory. Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that, and believe it or not — I regret it. And I do regret it particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues. But one thing I can promise you is this, I will always tell you the truth. I speak the truth for all of you, and for everyone in this country who doesn’t have a voice.”
Breitbart
IMO, there is also an underlying message to Hillarys camp here too - look, not only am I accounting for myself daily with the media, but I also admit my failings - why don't you do the same Hillary?"

Trump just did what few politicians have ever done.

Admit he was wrong.

Gotta applaud that.

What's to regret?


Was it when he said McCain was lousy...

No, nonsense...

Must have been when he mocked a disabled reporter...

No, surely not...

Oh I know it's when he insulted a grieving mother...

No, can't be that...

According to his cult he has always been 100% right so what's to regret?













This is satire and the list could have taken up a whole 5 pages.

unfortunately even as trump admits his faux pas or idiot statements, no trump fanboy here on ats ever 'man-ed' and said he was wrong. always deflected to $Hill.

everythiing trump said always was met with an excuse on here, 4 specific trump fanboys on here never stopped coming up with excuses.

i was always a critic of what trump said, because im voting for him. i have to make sure i what my candidate was saying was what i stood for, not just because i was a fanatic.

Trump will be the turning point in politics as we know it when he moves in the white house.

LOL - I think his 'apology' pretty much covers all comments he's made to anyone, ever and covers anyone who has taken offense in one way or another. It's a wonderfully generic statement that applies across the board.

Wall - check.
Muslims - check
Mocking a disabled reporter - check
Obama started ISIS - check
Hillary is crooked - check (this one is true btw)
Pissed off all of China - check.

Agreed, the list appears limitless, still, at least he acknowledges his shortcomings, all 58 Godzillion of them.

Politicians are robots.

They are programmed to say a certain thing at a certain time in a certain way.

Donald Trump has NEVER been that way and can't

But I think this is a good step forward for him and his campaign.

good work,
hopefully he keeps that in mind when he next wants to shoot from the hip.

I think he's been told, the less fodder he gives CNN and DNC the better he will be.

I'm glad you brought this to ATS. I heard it on the TV earlier and thought that he hit on a lot of points which had been used as cudgels against him and quite deftly mind you.

Once again, his heart is what people are electing. Not a perfect person, as that would be an illusion, a lie.

A HUMAN trying his best to do things as best he can and as truthfully as possible.

Honest politicians....what a great idea....

Trump can be anything you say he is, but you can only say it because he is honest enough to show you what he is truly thinking. This is the making of a real public servant. Also, a new age of American politics, the world to follow suit here after.

*Tips hat.

Admitting you have made mistakes, and taking responsibility for your actions, is a sign of maturity. People are going to recognize that, and give him massive credit for it.

I think Trump is taking this thing all the way.

Hardcore liberals, buy your plane tickets to Canada now.

This is why identity politics are so idiotic.

Trump has actually said a lot of things policy wise that are fantastic.

But its gotten lost in the sauce of idiotic statements to the point where we aren't even having a policy discussion in this country anymore.

That is why speaking off the cuff is so difficult and potentially risky.

That is why career politicians like Hillary and Obama have every little thing they say carefully scripted and vetted by whole teams of people before being put on their ever present teleprompters.

It looks like he apologized without really apologizing.

"I'm sorry, sometimes I use the wrong words", isn't exactly a specific apology about anything. And in fact, he isn't even saying he is sorry for what he said, or his meaning behind what he said...just sorry how he said it.

Trump really should of just went up there and said, "Sorry, not sorry".

You gotta stretch pretty far to make that assertion.

No, it wasn't an apology and we shouldn't expect one, but it was an admission of responsibility and regret.

I've said exactly this. People (especially Americans) have VERY short memories. He will campaign hard and proper the last 2-3 months and that is what people will remember of him come voting time.

That was Reagan's best play. Take responsibility and admit when you are wrong, publicly.

Heads must roll. That's a maxim, when it comes to the public. A real leader makes sure it is their own, and doesn't shilly shally.

What a great video clip.

"And believe it or not ... I regret it."

How frikkin' honest do you expect a guy to be. Even here, Trump is 'over the top.'

Landslide ... November ... Expect it.

If he keeps this up I may not have to drink myself into a coma after I vote for him.
