Donald Trump Says Meghan Was “Nasty” About HimJune 2, 2019
The President of the USA set the stage for his upcoming visit to the UK, Ireland and France next week during an interview with The Sun, talking about everything from outgoing UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s handling of Brexit to the contenders vying to replace her to Meghan Markle’s dislike of his politics.
May will step down as Conservative Party leader after Trump’s visit on June 7.
During his interview with the Sun published Friday Trump criticized May’s efforts on Brexit, saying he thinks “the UK allowed the European Union to have all the cards.”
“I had mentioned to Theresa that you have got to build up your ammunition. … I am sure that you could have built up a big advantage for your side and negotiated from strength. And it is very hard to play well when one side has all the advantage. They had nothing to lose. They didn’t give the European Union anything to lose.”
However, he did acknowledge, “at the same time, I respect Theresa and she would certainly know the facts a lot better than I know them.”
During his interview with The Sun, the President was confronted by comments made by Meghan ahead of the 2016 election.
Speaking on “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” in 2016, the Duchess of Sussex called the President misogynistic and said his politics are divisive, saying that she would move to Canada if he won.
The President responded, “I didn’t know that she was nasty. I hope she is OK. …” He then said, “I am sure she will go excellently (as a royal). She will be very good.” Buckingham Palace didn’t comment on Trump’s interview regarding the Duchess.
Mr. Trump also previewed his meeting with Prince Charles, where talks of climate change are expected.
“Well, we will be talking, we will be talking. I can say we have among the cleanest climate in the world right now. Our air and water are doing very well,” said the President.
However, despite his claim, the 20th annual State of the Air report, supported by the American Lung Association, found that pollution in the USA has only gotten worse in the last three years.
