Donald Trump hit back at his critics on "Media Buzz" today, saying that he "can't apologize" for making truthful statements about illegal immigrants and Mexico. 

Howard Kurtz asked the 2016 presidential candidate (watch above) if he will apologize for the controversial statements he made while announcing his run for president.

"I don't have to say that," Trump replied. "In terms of the border, it's a disgrace. Either we have a border or we don't have a country."

"I can never apologize for the truth, I don't mind apologizing for things, but I can't apologize for the truth," he added. "I said tremendous crime is coming across, everybody knows that's true, and it's happening all the time."

Trump proclaimed that he's not a racist.

"I'm number two and I'm going up, people take me very seriously," Trump stated. "Frankly, I'm the one that's going to bring back health to the country. I'm going to make America great again; politicians aren't going to do that."

Trump said that he thinks his poll numbers will increase, because some Americans agree with his stance on immigration.
