Trump hits out at "fake news"! POTUS claims it was The Queen who kept him waiting at the Windsor Castle
This was the same meeting where the US president tried to allegedly undermine the Queen's royal status by walking ahead of her while inspecting the troops
Donald Trump is in the mood to stir up trouble once again. The current POTUS has reportedly made a claim stating that Queen Elizabeth II, the British monarch, had, in fact, kept him waiting during their meeting at Windsor Castle, and not the other way round, as was being reported. He completely denied being late to reach the Palace in the first place, as per Metro.
During a rally that took place last night, Trump apparently claimed that England no longer exists, and even took the opportunity to hit out at "fake, fake disgusting news," which made false claims that The Queen waited for 15 minutes for him to arrive. But Trump being himself, declared the story as being completely untrue and even made claims that the real story was the other way round.
Attacking the political journalists who pride on their occupation of reporting important news to the public, the US President said, "Whatever happened to the free press? Whatever happened to honest reporting? They don’t report it. They only make up stories."
Addressing the rumors surrounding his latest visit to Britain, he then said: "I have great respect for the UK, United Kingdom, great respect. People call it Britain, they call it Great Britain, they call it, they used to call it England, different parts. But the UK, great respect, and I was asked to have tea with the Queen, who is incredible by the way. Incredible."
Coming to the part about the fake story about him being late to meet the monarch at Windsor Palace, he continued to say, "So I was hearing, I had landed and I’m on the ground and I’m waiting with the King’s err.. with the Queen’s guards, wonderful people. I’m waiting. So I was about 15 minutes early and I’m waiting with my wife and that’s fine. Hey, it’s the Queen, right? We can wait. But I’m a little early."
Making the whole 'being late' situation a complete fault of the Queen, Trump said during his speech, "So I then go up and meet the Queen and she is fantastic. We then go up and have tea. And I didn’t know this, it was supposed to last for 15 minutes, but it lasted for like an hour because we got along. We got along."
This was the same meeting where the US president tried to allegedly undermine the Queen's royal status by walking ahead of her while inspecting the troops. But Trump wasn't the only one doing the snubbing, or so it would see. During Trump's visit to London, Queen Elizabeth II had to abide by civilities when she met with the US first couple, but the Queen did not fail to present her own subtle protest by carefully choosing her brooches, each presenting a bold statement.
According to a Twitter user Julie (@SamaruiKnitter) the monarch wore three separate supposedly "controversial" brooches on each day of Trump's visit to her country. Julie belted out her intriguing theory about the Queen in a series of tweets on the popular micro-blogging platform and said: "She wore three brooches while she and Trump were both in town. The day he arrived, the day of the banquet, and the day she actually met him for tea. (sic)".
"Arrival day was the one that got the most attention. That day, she wore the brooch the Obamas gave her on their last visit to England. That by itself is amusing enough. She wore a brooch the Obamas gave her. But it gets better," Julie tweeted in her Twitter thread which gradually became popular and amassed over 3,000 likes.
'It's not an American brooch, any would be funny. She chose THIS ONE. This one was purchased out-of-pocket by Michelle and Barack Obama and given to her as a personal gift," she added.
