Donald Trump, in a remarkable break with his characteristically unapologetic style, acknowledged today that he has sometimes said “the wrong thing” and said he regretted some of his controversial statements.
“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 said while reading from prepared remarks during a campaign rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.
