PRINCE GEORGE was born in 2013 and Donald Trump said that he thought naming the royal baby after him would be a “great idea” – but Kate and William clearly had other ideas.
Mr Trump said: “Great idea after having built the greatest golf course in the World!”
This appears to be a reference to the Trump International Golf Links, which is near Aberdeen and was completed in 2012 amid a slew of protests from local residents and environmentalist groups.
Mr Trump, who when then best known as the reality TV star of The Apprentice US, tweeted the comment after having made another pronouncement about the Duchess of Cambridge in 2012.

At that time, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had made the landmark decision to sue after a French magazine published photographs of the Duchess sunbathing.
Shockingly, the President appeared to blame Kate herself for the intrusion of privacy.
He tweeted: “Kate Middleton is great – but she shouldn’t be sunbathing in the nude – only herself to blame.”
Mr Trump then added: “Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!”

The comments sparked outrage online, with royal watchers criticising Mr Trump for his “creepy” take on the situation.
However, President Trump has also had some words over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their recent media appearances.
Speaking to Nigel Farage on LBC last night, he said: “Well I’ve been watching her interviews and I’ve seen it and she’s taken it very personally.”

However, he added: ”I don’t know her, I will say I’ve met Harry and he’s great.
“He is really a fine young man, the whole family is, I think the whole family is terrific.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also launched legal proceedings of their own, after media published letters from the Duchess’ father Thomas Markle.
