US President Donald Trump told ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” in an interview aired Wednesday that he spoke with Prince Harry during his visit to Buckingham Palace on Monday, but not about his comments on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Harry stayed across the room from Trump during the part of that visit that was open to the press.
“We didn’t talk about it … I was going to because it was so falsely put out there,” Trump said. And when you see that transcript and you see, it’s the exact opposite of what they said. Did you look at the transcript?”
When asked last week about Meghan’s comments in 2016 – before she was a royal — that she would move to Canada if Trump was elected, the President told British tabloid The Sun, “I didn’t know that she was nasty. I hope she is OK.”
The US President also defended his comments about the Duchess.
Asked by ITV whether he thought Meghan is nasty, Trump said: “They said some of the things that she said and It’s actually on tape. And I said, ‘Well, I didn’t know she was nasty.’ I wasn’t referring to she’s nasty. I said she was nasty about me. And essentially I didn’t know she was nasty about me.”
“She was nasty to me. And that’s OK for her to be nasty, it’s not good for me to be nasty to her, and I wasn’t,” Trump added.
“You know what? She’s doing a good job, I hope she enjoys her life,” the President went on. “I think she’s very nice.”
