President Donald Trump responded to negative comments Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, made about him during his presidential loop in 2016.
In an interview with the British newspaper The Sun that was published on Saturday, Trump was asked what he thought of Markle calling him “women’s hatred” and “division” during a performance in 2016 on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. The Duchess of Sussex also said she would consider staying in Canada, where she filmed Suits when Trump became president.
Trump was apparently surprised by Markle’s comments. “I didn’t know that … No, I hope it goes well. I didn’t know that, no,” he said. “So what can I say? No, I didn’t know she was nasty. “
Trump went on to say that he felt Markle was a good addition to the British royal family. “I’m sure she’ll do great,” he said. “She will be very good.”
When Trump arrives in the UK for his state visit on Monday, he is expected to meet with Queen Elizabeth II, as well as Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Markle’s husband, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.
