News broke today of how Donald J. Trump apologized for all the ‘mean-spirited’ remarks made over the course of his Presidential campaign.
Under what can be assumed as ‘pressure’ from party elites, Trump acknowledged that he sometimes says ‘the wrong thing’ with regards to political discourse.
“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,” Trump uttered to a crowd of supporters.
Instantly the Left went into attack mode accusing Trump of not being sincere enough in his so called ‘apology’ for remarks made over the course of this last year of campaigning.

Did Trump use the words ‘I’m sorry’, ‘I apologize’ or anything close? No, he ‘regretted’. as I regret backing the car in a tree, no apology.

trump’s fake apology is a tactic of sociopaths when they start quantifying their loses. victims of abuse may go for this but survivors don’t

The truth is that Trump never specifically apologized for anything- and this is good.
Part of the GOP candidate’s appeal has been his brash sensibility and disregard for mainline political correctness. If Trump were to stop now with his accustomed to style and totally reinvent himself in a way that is pleasing to the establishment, he would lose all support from his base, guaranteed.
All Trump really said with today’s speech is that he ‘regrets’ acting as a loose cannon during the course of the primary debates. Rest assured, we have not heard the end of the Donald Trump we all know and love. Trump is smarter than to just up and abandon his core group of support.
