President Trump was actually surprised and rather displeased to hear that new royal and mother, Meghan Markle, had made nasty comments about him in 2016. However, Trump was gracious to the rude royal which is more than she deserves. I’m not sure why this is being re-aired now since the comments were in 2016 and were widely played… probably the media’s attempt to sow dissension and discord between Trump and the royal family ahead of his visit there.
President Trump will receive a warm and lavish welcome from the Queen, Charles, and Harry at Buckingham Palace on Monday. The American president gave an interview to The Sun in the Oval Office and said it was his great honor to meet with the 93-year-old monarch again and how he’s ready to spar with the Prince of Wales on climate change. Charles, Camilla, William, Kate, Harry, and even Prince Andrew will spend time with the U.S. President during his three-day visit.
From Fox News:
“Relations with Meghan are believed to be much frostier — yet Trump was generous in his praise for the new mom.
“Officially she will miss next week’s functions while on maternity with three-week-old son Archie. But it is thought she and Trump are being kept apart to avoid an embarrassing confrontation.
“LA-born Meghan, 37, accused him of being “misogynistic” and “divisive” during his 2016 presidential campaign. The ex-“Suits” actress also pledged to vote for his rival Hillary Clinton.
“Told of Meghan’s barbs by The Sun, Trump insisted it was the first time he’d heard them. He said: “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
“When told Meghan had threatened to leave for Canada if he won in 2016, he countered: “A lot of people are moving here (to the US).”
“He also revealed that he had no idea that he wouldn’t be meeting Meghan on his three-day state visit to the UK. He said: “I didn’t know that. I hope she is OK.”
“Rather than hit back at Meghan in his customary fashion, the President seemed willing to mend fences — while saying she can flourish in her new role. He predicted she will make “a very good” American princess.
“On her joining the Royal Family, he added: “It is nice, and I am sure she will do excellently. She will be very good. I hope she does (succeed).”
“Meghan detailed why she didn’t like Trump in a 2016 interview on US talk show, “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.” She said: “It’s really the moment I go. We film ‘Suits’ in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada.
“Yes, of course, Trump is divisive, think about female voters alone, right?” she said. “I think it was in 2012 the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points.”
“That is a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is, and so vocal about it, that is a huge chunk of it.”
“She added: “You’re not just voting for a woman if it’s Hillary (Clinton). Yes, you’re voting because she’s a woman, but certainly, because Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t really want that kind of world that he’s painting.”’

President Trump will be joined on his trip by First Lady Melania who will also discuss environmental issues with Charles over tea next week. I’m sure that the fact that Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord will be addressed. Trump told The Sun: “I have met Charles before. I like Charles. I think that’s very good. 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. We hope other countries can do so well. You know, it is a big atmosphere and frankly if one country is going to be bad and other countries going to be good, the country that is good gets penalized. Which is unfair.”
Trump will bring all four of his grown-up children and their spouses with him on this trip to share the British experience. He also wants Ivanka, Tiffany, Eric, and Donald Jr. to hold a “next generation” meeting with Princes William and Harry. Trump said: “I think my children will be meeting them. It would be nice.” He went on to add: “I am bringing some of the family. They are going to be there and we will be greatly honored by the trip. It will be great seeing the Queen for the second time. We had a very good talk the first one. We had a lot of interesting things to say. It really was a great visit. My mother also loved the Queen.”
Hundreds of thousands of activists are preparing to paralyze London with mass demonstrations during the state visit next week. More than 20,000 police officers will be deployed at 20 separate events planned across the country in a security operation expected to cost about £18million. The British fear the protests will turn violent during President Trump’s visit. European leftists are nothing if not organized and violent just like their US counterparts.
President Trump and his family will have a wonderful time with the royals during their visit. Controversies surrounding Markle’s father, her politics, her refusal to abide traditions, and her reportedly poor relationship with Her Majesty The Queen continue to plague her public approval in the UK. Her absence will not even be noticed just like her divisive and nasty comments in 2016 weren’t. No great loss if you ask me or most of America for that matter.
