Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) has issued a formal apology for his inflammatory statement earlier in the week that Democrats are "in love with terrorists" -- and Trump supporters are not happy about it.

In a tweet posted on Friday morning, Collins expressed regret for claiming Democrats only opposed the president's assassination of Iranian general Qassem Suleimani because they support terrorism.

"Let me be clear: I do not believe Democrats are in love with terrorists, and I apologize for what I said earlier this week," he said, before explaining his rationale for opposing Democrats' efforts to restrict Trump's ability to declare war against Iran. "I remain committed to working with my colleagues in Congress and with my fellow citizens to keep all Americans safe."

Collins took a lot of flack for his statement, most notably from Iraq War veteran Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), who angrily shot back that she "left parts of my body in Iraq fighting terrorists."

Many Trump supporters, however, attacked Collins's apology as a sign of weakness and said it was something they can't ever imagine the president doing.
