Donald Trump clarified his comments about Meghan Markle being nasty.
In an interview with the British broadcaster Piers Morgan which was scheduled to air on the morning of Wednesday 5th June 2019, Donald Trump explained that he had called the comments made by Meghan as nasty and not the Duchess herself.
He further added:
“You know what? She’s doing a great job, I hope she enjoys her life… I think she’s very nice.”
In an interview with The Nightly Show, Meghan had told the host Larry Wilmore that she considered the then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, misogynistic and divisive. The interview took place in 2016.
When quizzed about his thoughts on the comments made by Meghan by the British newspaper The Sun earlier this week, he insisted on never having heard of it before. He then went on to say
“I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
These comments were highly criticized by the British public and various media outlets across the world. Trump tried to deny having ever made these comments despite there being a recording of the same.
On Sunday, a day before his visit to the U.K, he said to the White House reporters that there was no need for clarification as “I made no bad comment.”
The President arrived on Monday for a 3-day visit. Meghan couldn’t attend any of the events a she is currently on a maternity break. The Queen hosted a special state banquet to honor the President’s arrival.

Trump and his entourage are all set to visit Ireland and France later this week.
