‘People said that’s so rude’ Trump speaks out on Queen faux pas

1023

DONALD Trump says he was called rude when he met the Queen as he discussed an alleged faux pas.

Former US President Donald Trump told host Nigel Farage during an interview on GB News in Florida his meeting with the Monarch in 2018 was all “smiles and laughs”. However, some people were annoyed over how much time he spent with her.

He said: “I think she’s a fantastic woman. She is a fantastic woman.

“I was supposed to spend half an hour with her. I ended up being there for much more than an hour and everyone said, ‘Oh, that’s so rude.’

“But she liked it and I liked it, I’m not going to be rude.

“We had a great time together.

“She was laughing and smiling. We got along great.

“We talked the whole night. She is a great, wonderful woman.”

The meeting caused a stir at the time as Mr Trump arrived late but claimed it was the Queen who kept him waiting and he was in fact early.

He said: “I landed and I’m on the ground and I’m waiting with the king’s and the queen’s guards.

“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.”

He dubbed the news of his late arrival “fake, fake, disgusting news”.

Impressed by the fact the Monarch, 95, has not been involved in any personal scandal over the years of her reign, Mr Trump said: “And no scandal, no anything.

“Think of it, she’s done this for more than 70 years and she’s never had scandal about herself.

“She’s an incredible woman.”

The former president went on to speak in length about how much his mother, Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, who died in 2000, looked up to the Queen.

“My mother was born in Scotland.

“She came over here at about 19 years old, met my father… they were married for many many years, they had a great marriage.

“She was really somebody who respected the Queen. She loved the Queen.

“Anything with the Queen, when they were doing anything ceremonial as an example, she’d be glued to the television.

“She had great respect and love for the Queen.”

When the host touched upon Her Majesty’s recent health scares, Mr Trump said: “Hopefully [she’s] not very ill though.

“I’ve been watching her closely because I love her and I think she’s great.”
