Jeremy Corbyn finally said sorry for the anti-Semitism crisis that has engulfed the Labour Party - but insisted he has 'dealt with it'.

The opposition leader apologised in a bad-tempered exchange live on This Morning after being pressed by host Philip Schofield. 

Mr Corbyn has steadfastly refused in recent days to apologise directly in media interviews in recent days as the issue has reared its head in the election campaign - although he has had sorry previously.

But appearing on ITV's magazine show with Schofield and co-host Holly Willoughby, he was pressed to say sorry, with Schofield asking: 'Why can't you say sorry?'

Mr Corbyn finally relented saying: 'Obviously I am very sorry for everything that has happened. 

'But I would like to make it clear that we are dealing with it - I have dealt with it.'

Donald denies Jeremy Corbyn's NHS 'sellout' claims 

Donald today took a wrecking ball to Jeremy Corbyn's claims that he wants to seize the NHS - insisting the US has no interest in including it in a post-Brexit trade deal.

The US president flatly dismissed the Labour leader's warning that he wants to open the health service to American companies and push up drugs prices.

Speaking as he ran the gauntlet of a NATO summit in London with the election campaign in full swing, Mr insisted the US 'wouldn't touch the NHS if you gave it to us on a silver platter'.

And despite initially saying he had 'no thoughts' on the UK ballot, Mr lavished praise on Boris Johnson for doing a 'great job' and made clear he had always supported Brexit.

The dramatic intervention came as Mr Corbyn went all-out to 'weaponise' the President's arrival as he desperately tries to claw back the Tories' poll advantage. A poll today found the Conservatives are 12 points ahead. 

'Candidates have been withdrawn by the Liberal Democrats, and the Conservatives and by us because of it. We just do not accept it in any form whatsoever.'

Mr Corbyn was embroiled in a row with the Chief Rabbi last week, saying he was  'wrong' to accuse Labour of failing to tackle anti-Semitism - as the party leader refused four times to apologise to British Jews.

In a bruising prime time pre-election interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil, Mr Corbyn said he wanted to have 'a discussion' with Ephraim Mirvis after he accused the left-winger of  allowing the 'poison' of anti-Semitism to take root in Labour.

The Labour leader was challenged over Mr Mirvis's allegation that Labour's claims it is doing everything to tackle anti-Jewish racism was a 'mendacious fiction'.

'No, he's not right. Because he would have to produce the evidence to say that's mendacious,' Mr Corbyn replied.

He insisted he has 'developed a much stronger process' and had sanctioned and removed members who have been anti-Semitic.

But he floundered when Mr Neil detailed specific cases of anti-Semitism by Labour members who faced little or no sanction. 

On ITV's This Morning, Mr Corbyn was asked about questions arising over whether Russian disinformation was behind Labour's 451-page unredacted report that revealed the details of talks between UK and US officials regarding a future trade deal between the two countries.
