He’s one of the most divisive US presidents in history, with stars and even royalty expressing their anger over his controversial policies in the public eye.
But Donald Trump, 72, has now shared his shock in a tell-all interview with The Sun after hearing that Meghan once described him as “misogynistic” and “divisive”.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, hit out at the president in an interview with Larry Wilmore on the Nightly Show in 2016, before her marriage to Prince Harry.
In it, she threatened to leave for Canada if he won in 2016 and said: “Yes, of course, Trump is divisive, think about female voters alone, right? 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.
“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.”
When asked about the comments, Trump told The Sun he wasn’t aware of them and added: “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
However, he was full of praise for the new mum too, and expressed concern when he was told she wouldn’t be meeting him along with the rest of the royal family on his upcoming state visit.
“I didn’t know that. I hope she is OK,” he added, according to the news outlet – before insisting she would be “a very good” American princess.
“It is nice, and I am sure she will do excellently,” he reportedly said. “She will be very good. I hope she does (succeed).”
Elsewhere in the chat, Trump said he was excited to see the Queen and looked forward to discussing climate change with Prince Charles.
According to multiple reports, Trump and his family will have chance to meet Charles, Camilla, William, Catherine, Harry and Prince Andrew on the visit.
It will begin on the first day with a welcome from the Queen herself, along with Charles and Camilla, before he’ll enjoy lunch with Her Majesty and her grandson Prince Harry.
Trump and his wife Melania will then join Prince Andrew, Duke Of York, at Westminster Abbey to lay a wreath at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior and take a tour of the World Heritage site.
From there he will also spend the day with outgoing prime minister Theresa May, before enjoying more royal engagements.
