I’m going to apologize for the way I feel.

I’m sure you guys can appreciate that.

But I don’t know how to apologize to all the people I’ve offended, or hurt.

And I hope that I can at least begin to heal the hurt that I caused.

And that I have a better understanding of who I am and where I come from.

I’ve made mistakes, and I’ve said things I should have.

I apologize to the people of Lakeview Golf Club, and to all of those who have come out in support of me.

That said, I don`t know how I would have handled the situation differently.

And so I would ask you all to forgive me.

But for all the hurt I caused, for the hate that I spewed at people, I ask that you continue to support me.

And for all of the support I have gotten, I will continue to get it.

I have been the subject of more hate than any other American, and that`s the most hurtful thing that I`ve ever had to go through.

I will do my best to make amends.
