NEW YORK ā€“ Fox News Channel host Brian Kilmeade is apologizing for saying on the air that “all terrorists are Muslim.”

Kilmeade, a host of the ‘Fox & Friends‘ morning show, said Monday that he misspoke on Friday when he and his colleagues were discussing the appearance last week on ‘The View‘ of Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. Two hosts walked off ‘The View’ after they objected to the Fox News Channel host saying that “Muslims killed us on 9/11.” They returned after O’Reilly apologized.

Kilmeade said that “not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim.”

On Monday, Kilmeade said on Fox, “I don’t believe all terrorists are Muslims. I’m sorry.”
