Donald Trump denies calling Meghan Markle “nasty” in a recorded interview

On the eve of his visit to England, Donald Trump denied that he called Meghan Markle “nasty.” He called the report “fake news,” but then audio from the interview surfaced confirming Trump did in fact say that.

Trump’s remarks were published on Saturday in an interview with The Sun. He said he was “shocked” by Duchess Meghan’s remarks in an old interview in which she said Trump was “misogynistic…and so vocal about it.”

Trump responded to that by saying, “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.” (FOX News)

Hot Takes:

  • Duchess Meghan previously said she would miss events with Trump, blaming it on her maternity leave following the birth of her son with Prince Harry.
  • At this point “fake news” isn’t necessarily inaccurate reporting, it’s simply something Trump doesn’t like.
  • Maybe Trump just forgot. He’s busy calling so many people out he can’t keep track.
