Mr Corbyn was asked whether a Russian disinformation campaign was behind the leaking of a 451-page government report that Labour claimed was evidence of the Conservatives' plan to open up the NHS to further privatisation in a US-UK trade deal.

Corbyn faced mounting criticism for refusing to personally apologise over antisemitism in the party four times during an interview with the BBC's veteran journalist Andrew Neil last week.

"Anti-Semites join the Labour Party because Jeremy Corbyn is the leader and the things he says and does". Many leaders of the British Jewish community, as well as former Labour members, have urged the public not to vote for Corbyn in the upcoming election.

"Our party", began Corbyn, but he was interrupted by presenter Philip Schofield who pressed him, saying "No, just say sorry". "We just do not accept it in any form whatsoever", he added.

"So are you sorry?"

'But I want to make this very clear... Last week, the Tory candidate Amjad Bashir was also suspended from the Conservative party over anti-Semitic comments. I have dealt with it.

"I don't wish to be the Labour Party's speechwriter, but a genuine heartfelt apology would be something along the lines of 'I can see how hanging out with anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers for 30 years might have caused some confusion in the past. Very happy to talk to him".

Corbyn has previously apologised for the hurt caused to the Jewish community in a social media video released in the summer of 2018.

In other news, it has emerged that Jeremy Corbyn wrote to U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday to ask him to revise USA negotiating objectives for a post-Brexit trade deal to ensure Britain's public health service is not included.
