In a recent interview with Nigel Farage on GB News, former President Donald Trump expressed his displeasure towards Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, accusing the couple of being “disrespectful” towards the late Queen Elizabeth. Trump’s remarks were particularly focused on Prince Harry, whom he criticized for writing a book called “Spare”, which he described as “just horrible”.
The former President went on to express his surprise that Prince Harry was even invited to King Charles’s coronation. Speaking of the upcoming event, Trump stated: “I was actually surprised that Harry was invited. He said some terrible things, and the book was just horrible.”
The interview with Farage, a staunch ideological ally of Trump, was the only one that the former President gave during his two-day trip to Scotland to open a golf course bearing his name in Ayrshire. During the 30-minute interview, Trump also discussed his chances of winning back the presidency in 2024. In a departure from his usual bombastic style, he took a more modest tone, stating that he believes he has a good chance but toning down his typically boastful rhetoric.
“I was actually surprised that Harry was invited.” He went on: “He said some terrible things … and the book [‘Spare’] was just horrible.”
In addition to discussing his political aspirations, Trump also spoke on a range of other topics during the interview. He accused Boris Johnson of turning “far-left” while in office and claimed that if he were president, he could end the Ukraine war in “one day”.
However, Trump’s remarks were not limited to his political ambitions and opinions. He also criticized current President Joe Biden for not attending King Charles’s coronation, suggesting that he was physically incapable of doing so. Trump stated: “I don’t think he can do it physically, actually. I think that it’s hard for him to do it physically… getting over here for him. He’s got a lot of things going and a lot of strange things happen. But certainly he should be here as a representative of our country. I was surprised when I heard that he wasn’t coming.”
Trump went on to accuse Biden of disrespecting the British monarchy by not attending the event, stating that it was “very disrespectful” for him not to be there. He even suggested that Biden’s wife would be “sleeping” through the ceremony, further emphasizing his criticism of the current president.
“I think that it’s hard for him to do it physically … getting over here for him. “He’s got a lot of things going and a lot of strange things happen. But certainly he should be here as a representative of our country. “I was surprised when I heard that he wasn’t coming.” He added: “I think it’s very disrespectful for him not to be (at the coronation).” In a clip aired before the interview, he suggested Mr Biden, whose wife is attending on his behalf, would be “sleeping” through Saturday’s coronation ceremony.
