Donald Trump Denies Calling Meghan Markle ‘Nasty’ despite Audio of the Remark

Donald Trump claims he “never called Meghan Markle ‘nasty,’ in a tweet where he called out news outlets, yet an audio recording of him says otherwise.

President Donald Trump is caught up in another controversy as he denies calling the Duchess of Sussex “nasty” for criticizing him in the past, even thinking of migrating to Canada had he won president; but instead, Markle moved to the U.K. and became a royal.

IN DENIAL

Earlier this week, The Sun released a story about Trump calling Meghan Markle “nasty” after her judgments of him, yet the president, who tweeted on Sunday, denied he ever commented that way and believed the online post was fabricated.

“I never called Meghan Markle ‘nasty.’ Made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold! Will @CNN, @nytimes and others apologize? Doubt it!” Trump tweeted.

CONCRETE PROOF

The Sun’s story developed from an interview the outlet had with Trump on Friday at the Oval Office, ahead of his first state visit to the U.K., which involves meeting the royal family.

Trump claims to be looking forward to seeing Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles again during his state visit, after which, he was asked how he felt about Markle’s absence from the meeting, being on maternity leave, despite being “so nice” during campaign season in 2016.

The president, along with the first lady, is set to leave for the U.K. on June 3 for a state visit involving a bilateral meeting with the prime minister, lunch with the royal family, and a ceremony for the D-Day landings 75th-year commemoration. 

In reply, Trump disclosed he didn’t know of any remarks Markle made in the past, including one where she said she’d move to Canada if he'd be elected, and instead wished her well, hoping “she’s OK.”

“A lot of people moving here, so what can I say? No, I didn’t know that she was nasty,” said Trump in the interview.

The audio recording of the interview showed the president bouncing back from calling the royal “nasty” by saying it was “nice” to have an American princess and claiming Markle “will be very good.” 

Back when she was still an actress in "Suits," Markle called Trump “misogynistic” and “divisive” during an interview on “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore,” adding that she will consider moving to Canada if he won.

“You’re not just voting for a woman if it’s Hillary just because she’s a woman,” Markle said, “but certainly because Trump has made it easy to see you don’t really want that kind of world.”

THREE-DAY STATE VISIT

The president, along with the first lady, is set to leave for the U.K. on June 3 for a state visit involving a bilateral meeting with the prime minister, lunch with the royal family, and a ceremony for the D-Day landings 75th-year commemoration. 

The three-day stay aims to strengthen the ties of both countries, especially in “trade, investment, security, and defense” says Prime Minister Theresa May. It is with high hopes that the two world leaders can build on their relationship in the coming years.
