Trump finally expresses regret...over what?

  |   World News

Donald Trump on Thursday expressed regret over causing “personal pain” through ill-chosen words he has used “in the heat of debate,” an unexpected and uncharacteristic declaration of remorse for a candidate whose public persona is defined by his combative and bombastic style. Speaking during his first campaign rally since rebooting his campaign, the Republican presidential nominee sought to frame himself as a truth-telling candidate who occasionally crosses boundaries while pursing the public interest. He also sought to contrast himself with his Democratic rival, Hilary Clinton, who he accused of dishonesty and pandering. “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," Trump said, with a slight smile, during a campaign rally in Charlotte, N.C.
