Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann told “Today Show” co-host Savannah Guthrie that he will not apologize to the liberal outrage mob for his interaction with Native American protester Nathan Phillips.
"Do you feel from this experience that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own fault in any way?” the anchor asked.
Sandmann replied bluntly, “As far as standing there, I had every right to do so.”
He added: “I was not disrespectful to Mr. Phillips. I respect him, I’d like to talk to him. In hindsight, I wish we couldn’t walked away and avoided the whole thing.”
On Tuesday night, Sandmann revealed President Donald Trump had incited the Covington students to the White House.
It’s not that big of a surprise as Trump has publicly supported the students following the media smears against them.
“Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media,” Trump tweeted.
He added: “Not good, but making big comeback! ‘New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American” @TuckerCarlson.”
“Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be,” the president wrote in another tweet. “They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good - maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!”
It doesn't look like Sandmann is going to give in to the mob.
Is President Trump right to invite the Covington kids to the White House?
