PRESIDENT DONALD Trump has denied claims he called the Duchess of Sussex “nasty” – despite the comments being recorded.
On Sunday (Jun 2), Trump tweeted: “I never called Meghan Markle ‘nasty’, made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold!”
However, audio from his interview with The Sun were recorded ahead of his state visit. During the interview, the US President was told of the Duchess’ comments made in 2016, when she referred to him as “divisive and a “misogynist.”
Upon hearing the comments, Trump said: “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
He went on to say that he was glad she had joined the royal family and he believed she would make a “very good” princess.
“It is nice, and I am sure she will do excellently,” he said.
On Saturday the Sun posted an audio recording of the interview on its website, proving his tweet to be inaccurate.
