President Trump was in Britain for a state visit and in that time he has of course gotten himself into a number of controversies including a perceived dig at the royal family.
Trump was on Good Morning Britain with Piers Morgan and while there, he tried to explain what he meant when he called the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, ‘Nasty’
This had happened when President Trump, in an interview with the Sun, was questioned about comments made by Markle during his 2016 election campaign where she called him ‘Divisive’ and a ‘Misogynist’
On hearing this, in typical Trump fashion, he said: I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.
Now, in Britain, after facing a tonne of backlash for his comments, he tried to explain the situation saying that he didn’t think she herself was a nasty person, but rather, how she decided to label him.
Grilled by Piers Morgan on the matter, the President of the United States said: “The question was asked to me, and I didn’t know that she said anything bad about me. It sounds like she did, but that’s OK. They said some of the things that she said, and it’s actually on tape.
“I said, ‘Well, I didn’t know she was nasty’, I was referring to… I said she was nasty about me. And, essentially, I didn’t know she was nasty about me, so I said, but you know what? She’s doing a good job, I hope she enjoys her life.”
President Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom hasn’t been plain sailing as he’s been met with protests from people who are unhappy with his Presidency.
He doesn’t see it though as during a news conference when asked about the protests, he said: “I heard there were protests,
“I said, ‘Where are the protests?’ I don’t see any protests. I did see a small protest today when I came — very small. So a lot of it is fake news, I hate to say.”
President Trump and Meghan Markle didn’t have to meet during this visit as she is on maternity leave following the birth of her baby boy.
