But pressed for an apology by Morgan, he said: "I don't want to cause any difficulty for your country".
"Of course I didnt know that", Trump responded in excerpts of the interview aired Friday.
'I don't know who they are, I know nothing about them, so I wouldn't be doing that.
'Certainly I wasn't endorsing anybody. Perhaps it was a big story in the UK, but in the United States it wasn't a big story.
After Morgan told Trump that he wanted the British people to get to know "the real you", and suggested that an apology "would go a long way", the president stammered out something less than contrition.
Trump said he retweeted the messages, which contained the titles "Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!" and "Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!" because he is a "big believer" in combating radical Islamic terrorism. Second, Trump said, the fact that he had taken part in the propaganda campaign of a group of British racists was hardly worth mentioning, since it "was not a big story" in the United States at the time.
Morgan, a longtime friend of Trump's, was showered with praise and rebukes on social media following the interview scoop.
Morgan said that Trump "publicly apologised" for retweeting the messages and added that the President said he "did not know who they were".
The US President was condemned by several noted individuals, including British Prime Minister Theresa May, for the shared tweets.
While Morgan engaged in some creative editing of the president's remarks to characterize them as an apology, the whole exchange closely echoed Trump's weird attempt, in early 2016, to claim that he had never heard of American white supremacists like David Duke or the Ku Klux Klan.
May said in a statement that it was "wrong for the president to have done this", but she didn't rescind her offer for Trump to visit.
So did Trump actually apologize?
