President Trump calls Harry a “terrific guy” and Meghan “really nice” in new interview

A few days after remarking that he didn’t know the Duchess of Sussex could be “nasty” when discussing him, the President of the United States has praised both the American royal and her husband, the Duke of Sussex in a new interview with Piers Morgan set to air this morning on Good Morning Britain.

When discussing Prince Harry, the President said, “I think he’s a terrific guy. The Royal Family is really nice. [Prince Harry] spent a lot of time talking to Ivanka and talking to my family. I went up—he couldn’t have been nicer. Couldn’t have been nicer… I think he’s great.”

He also denied that the royal snubbed him and his family on Monday at Buckingham Palace saying Harry was “far from frosty” and spoke to him and his family claiming the reports that Harry did not want to talk to him were “quite the opposite.”

Morgan asked him if he spoke to the Prince about the “nasty” comments, and the President replied that he thought about discussing it saying, “I was going to because it was so falsely put out there.”

“And when you see that transcript, and you see, it’s the exact opposite of what they said. Did you look at the transcript?”

President Trump also denied that he called the Duchess of Sussex nasty remarking, “I said she was nasty about me. And essentially I didn’t know she was nasty about me.”

He continued, “That’s okay for her to be nasty, it’s not good for me to be nasty to her and I wasn’t.”

Mr Trump did have praise for the California born Duchess, “She’s doing a good job. I hope she enjoys her life… I think she’s very nice.”

The US state visit to the UK concludes today in Portsmouth.
