Trump calls Meghan Markle ‘nasty’ over past critical comments

President Trump called Meghan Markle “nasty” during an interview with the British newspaper The Sun in the Oval Office.

Trump made the remark when asked about his reaction to Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, calling him  “divisive” and “misogynistic” during a 2016 appearance on "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore."

“I didn’t know that she was nasty,” the president told the outlet in the interview published on Friday.

But he went on to wish her well, stating: “I am sure she will do excellently (as a royal)…She will be very good.”

Days ago, CBS News reported that Markle won’t be meeting Trump during his upcoming state visit to the U.K.

“But Meghan’s distaste for Trump as a politician isn’t why she’ll be absent from the events next week,” notes Town & Country magazine. “Rather, the Duchess of Sussex is currently on maternity leave following the birth of her son, Archie Harrison, and taking time off from her official duties.”
