Donald Trump says he has no regrets about '16 kickoff speech

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Donald Trump has no regrets.

The bombastic real estate mogul and reality television star says Wednesday he has no second thoughts about anything he said in his blustering presidential campaign kickoff speech.

He told The Associated Press in an interview, quote, "there's nothing in there I didn't mean."

That includes a remark portraying immigrants from Mexico as "rapists." The Mexican interior minister called the comment "biased and absurd."

Trump had previously flirted with running for president several times but never followed through.

He says this time is different, because, quote, "the country is at a critical stage."
