The president told The Sun on Saturday that "I didn't know she was nasty" when asked about comments the American former actress made three years ago that she would move to Canada if he won the 2016 USA election.

Ahead of his visit to the UK, Mr Trump called the prince's wife "nasty" in an interview with The Sun.

"I didn't know that", he said of her late-night interview.

"I think he was making the point that he didn't say "she's nasty", he just said "she said nasty things", Piers clarified. She also said that she might move to Canada if he were elected president, but as we all know, ended up moving to England instead.

Trump used his interview with Morgan to dispute any notion that he meant insult when he used the term "nasty" in discussing the American-born Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Trump did tell Morgan that he wanted to chat with Harry about it when they met on Monday at Buckingham Palace but didn't have the opportunity.

The English socialite said that Meghan is "ruling the roost" and keeping her husband from some of his closest friends. "I think she is very nice". I hope she does [succeed],' he said. "I was going to because it was so falsely put out there", Trump said.

"I think he's a terrific guy".

As it started to rain, many protesters began to make the short walk past the hundreds of police lining Whitehall to Parliament Square, where the Trump blimp had earlier taken flight. "It's not good for me to be nasty to her and I wasn't".

Trump denied rumours that Prince Harry gave Trump the cold sholder at Buckingham Palace during his state visit.

Meghan, who gave birth to her first child with Harry just a few weeks ago, missed out on meeting Trump and Melania as she is now on maternity leave.

According to Acosta, who host John Berman pointed out had seen a lot of Trump's speeches, Trump's speech was "perhaps the most on-message moment" of Trump's presidency and it "rose to the moment".

It was perhaps not the smoothest start to his United Kingdom visit, seeing as he was due to have lunch with her husband, Prince Harry, later on in the trip. "I went up, he was-he couldn't have been nicer", Trump said.

Trump ended the conversation by complimenting Markle on how she is doing a great job in her new role as a member of the royal family.

It seems even Morgan-normally an ardent supporter of President Trump-had questions about Trump's tweet of support for LGBT people given his widely criticized ban of transgender people from the military.
