Trump shocked by Meghan Markle's 'nasty' comments about him, but says she'd make a 'good American princess'
President Donald Trump has called the comments made by Meghan Markle about him "nasty". The Duchess of Sussex has been openly critical of POTUS and had backed his rival, Hillary Clinton for president.
Meghan had accused Trump of being 'misogynistic' and 'divisive' and had also suggested before the 2016 election that she would leave the US if Donald Trump won. During an interview with The Sun, when told of the comments made by the Duchess of Sussex, Trump said that he was unaware of the comments that Meghan had made. "I didn't know that. What can I say? I didn't know that she was nasty," Trump revealed ahead of his state visit to the UK.
Trump will start his state visit on Monday and will be meeting members of the royal family including the Queen. However, the Duchess of Sussex who recently gave birth to her and Prince Harry's first child, Archie Windsor, will not be present as she is on maternity leave.
When asked about the Duchess' suggesting she would leave the US and move to Canada if he was elected, Trump responded, "A lot of people are moving here (to the US)." He also shared that US citizen Meghan will make "a very good" American princess. "It is nice, and I am sure she will do excellently. She will be very good. I hope she does (succeed)," he said of her joining the royal family.
Like last year, many protesters are planning on taking to the streets to show their disapproval to Trump and his policies. Scotland Yard revealed that they had an experienced team which was ready to lead and guide the police and the security operation. Despite the protests, Trump shared that he was "really loved" in the UK.
"I don't imagine any US president was ever closer to your great land. You know there was a time quite a while ago, six or seven years ago, when a group of people came out against me in some form. They were totally overridden by another group of people that was far larger and everybody said, 'let's take a pass'," he said.
"Now I think I am really - I hope - I am really loved in the UK. I certainly love the UK," Trump added. Trump will also be taking all of his children and their spouses to meet the British royal family.
