Donald Trump said he wanted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to be “happy” – despite the US actress previously calling the president a “misogynist”.
He was asked by Piers Morgan in an ITV interview this evening whether he had been invited to this year’s Royal Wedding.
Donald Trump replied: “Not that I know of. I want them to be happy.
“They look like a lovely couple.”
Morgan then referenced Ms Markle’s views on Mr Trump and asked how he felt.
The president said simply: “I still hope they’re happy.”
He also declared his love for the UK – claiming he is incredibly popular in the country.
Donald Trump told Piers Morgan in an explosive interview on ITV this evening he thinks he is “very popular in your country”.
After Morgan interjected “let’s not be too hasty, Mr President”, Mr Trump doubled down on his stature among British people.
He said: “I think I’m very popular in your country. I get so much fan mail from people in your country. They love my sense of security, they get a good sense of what I’m doing.
“I’m getting tremendous support from people in the UK.”
Morgan asked him what he thought of UK politicians like Sadiq Khan and Jeremy Corbyn who said he would not be welcome for any sort of visit to the UK.
Mr Trump said: “That’s their problem. If they don’t I could very nicely stay home.”
He then expressed his own love for Britain – especially Scotland, the birthplace of his mother, who he said loved the Royal Family.
Mr Trump said: “She would have… she had a great sense of regal. She had a love for the Queen, for the Royal Family.
“She really respected the Queen. She loved the pomp and ceremony and circumstance.
“She loved Scotland and maybe that is the reason I feel the same way about it.”
