Their meeting caused a stir when they finally sat down for tea together at Windsor Castle last month, but now President Donald Trump has had his say about what he claims really happened when he met Her Majesty the Queen.
Following the historic meeting in July it was widely reported that Trump and First Lady Melania arrived late to Windsor Castle, along with claims that other members of the Royal family refused to meet the US leader.
However, speaking at a Make America Great Again rally in Pennsylvania, Trump denied being late to meet the monarch, instead revealing that Queen Elizabeth actually kept him waiting for 15 minutes because he arrived early.
“I was asked to have tea with the Queen, who is incredible by the way. Incredible,” he says in a video shared by The Sun. “I landed and I’m on the ground and I’m waiting with the King’s and the Queen’s guards — wonderful people. I’m waiting.
“I was about 15 minutes early and I’m waiting with my wife and that’s fine. Hey, it’s the Queen, right? We can wait. But I’m a little early.”
“So, I then go up and meet the Queen and she is fantastic. We then go up and we have tea. And I didn’t know this — it was supposed to last 15 minutes but it lasted like an hour. Because we got along. And she liked our first lady and our first lady liked her.”
During the rally he also seemed to get a bit confused about the make-up of the United Kingdom and how it differs from England, and Great Britain.
He said: “I have great respect for the UK — the United Kingdom. Great respect. People call it Britain, they call it Great Britain. They used to call it England, different parts. But the UK — great respect.”
Billionaire Trump was slammed on Twitter for the gaffe, with many people taking to Twitter to offer the 45th President of the United States a geography lesson about how the United Kingdom is made up, of Great Britain – which consists of England, Scotland and Wales – along with Northern Ireland.
