His answer is a clear "no".
President Donald Trump told British television personality Piers Morgan in an interview set to air Sunday that he doesn't consider himself to be a feminist. While sharing the picture of him handing over an Arsenal jersey to Trump, Morgan wrote "The moment I invite President Trump to be Arsenal's new manager".
Asked about opposition to his state visit by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Trump is quick to say "I don't know the man".
He told the 52-year-old: "I also give it to people".
"No, I wouldn't say I'm a feminist", Trump replied.
"We get tremendous support from people in the United Kingdom". Pressing the President for "just an apology" for his use of Twitter, Morgan was met with President Trump shaking his head and explaining he didn't know that he had anything to apologise about.

A number of observers mocked Morgan for describing the president's "feminist" remark as "breaking news".
"If you're telling me they're awful racist people, I would certainly apologise if you'd like me to do that", he told Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan during an interview conducted in Davos and broadcast on Friday. "Just imagine how much worse it would have been if he'd said he WAS".
"If you're telling me they're horrible people, horrible, racist people, I would certainly apologize if you would like me to do that".
Viewers took to Twitter to question why he had chosen to cover his glass with the coaster.
President Donald Trump will take a turn as America's salesman-in-chief Friday, trying to convince a sceptical band of the global great and good in Davos that he is good for business.
