AceShowbiz - Donald Trump recently created a stir on social media following an interview that found him calling Meghan Markle "nasty." As the backlash grew stronger, POTUS attempted to clarify what he meant during an interview with Piers Morgan for "Good Morning Britain". However, he still called the Duchess of Sussex "nasty."
When asked by Morgan to explain his comment, Trump answered, "They said some of the things that she said and it's actually on tape. And I said: 'Well, I didn't know she was nasty.' I wasn't referring to she's nasty. I said she was nasty about me. And essentially I didn't know she was nasty about me." He continued, "She was nasty to me. And that's OK for her to be nasty, it's not good for me to be nasty to her and I wasn't."
Heaping praises for Meghan, Trump added, "You know what? She's doing a good job. I hope she enjoys her life... I think she's very nice."
Not many people bought his clarification, though. "Donald Trump explains 'nasty' Meghan Markle comments, but basically calls her 'nasty' again," one said as another echoed, "Nasty to me or nasty about me. Either way he's calling her nasty." One other wished, "I hope her majesty asks him to leave. He called Meghan Markle nasty three times on British TV."
The backlash first started when Trump was sitting down with The Sun for an interview, where he was asked for his opinion on something that Meghan said about him before she joined the royal family. At the time, the former "Suits" star said she would move to Canada if Trump was elected president, calling him "divisive" and "misogynistic." In response to the comment, Trump said, "No, I didn't know that she was nasty."
Trump is currently in Britain for a three-day trip. While he has yet to meet the mother of one, the former TV personality has spent time with Queen Elizabeth II and other royal family members, including Prince Harry.
