Donald Trump has denied calling Meghan Markle 'nasty' despite audio recording

Monday, 03 Jun, 2019

Predictably, Twitter exploded, with many noticing that while the whole point of the posting the audio was to slam CNN for "fake news", the video achieved the opposite as the president actually did call Markle "nasty".

"I never called Meghan Markle "nasty"," Trump tweeted on Sunday morning (US time).

The controversy began late last week. No, I hope she is OK.

Asked if he was sorry to miss out on meeting the American-born Meghan and told that she "wasn't so nice about you" during the campaign, Mr Trump said: "I didn't know that".

The US President also spoke on his expected meeting with Prince Charles in the United Kingdom, in which they will discuss the rapidly changing climate.

While the president is expected to meet with Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William and Markle's husband, Prince Harry, Markle, who is on maternity leave, will not be in attendance. 'She will be very good'.

President Donald Trump is denying having ever called Meghan Markle "nasty" for her past critiques of him - despite the concrete proof that he did. Instead, two years on, she married Britain's Prince Harry and became part of the royal family.

"I don't think it's going to disrupt the welcome at all", he said on CBS's "Face the Nation", because the British had learned "from the president that you know regularly we have to agree to disagree".

The Sun has now posted an audio recording of the interview with its political editor on its website.

Markle previously supported Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, calling Mr Trump "divisive" and "misogynistic".

Every month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shine a light on different "causes and social issues that matter to us" through the power of social media. "Women are going to stand up together and speak out against the lunacy of his presidency", she said of Trump.

LA-born Meghan will not be present as the president meets other members of the royal family during his state visit after giving birth to her son Archie nearly four weeks ago.

However, there will be plenty of opportunity for awkwardness when he meets with her husband, Prince Harry, and father-in-law Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace on Monday.
