PRESIDENT TRUMP has called Megan Markle ‘nasty’ after he was informed of the Duchess of Sussex’s criticism of him when he was running for office.
Trump said he was surprised to learn that Markle wouldn’t be meeting him on his upcoming state visit.
When quizzed about her comments from three years ago, Trump said: “I didn’t know that. What can I say?
“I didn’t know she was nasty.”
Markle supported Trump’s 2016 rival Hillary Clinton and said that she would consider leaving the country if he won the election.
(What better way to do so than to marry a foreign prince, eh?)
The Duchess also branded Trump ‘divisive’ and ‘misogynistic’ during an interview with Larry Wilmore in 2016.
She went on to say that she didn’t want to live in the world the Republican candidate was painting during his election campaign.
Despite branding her ‘nasty’, the President went on to wish Meghan well saying that he thinks she will make a “very good american princess”, before stating that she’ll likely be an excellent addition to the royal family.
“It is nice and I am sure she will do excellently (as Princess),” he said.
“She will be very good, I hope she does (succeed).”
Officially, Meghan will be missing Trump’s state visit as she’s on maternity leave with new baby Archie, but many feel as if her political stance is the real cause for her absence.
Speaking to Wilmore on the Nightly Show back in 2016, Meghan said: “We film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada.
“Yes, of course, Trump is divisive, think about female voters alone, right?
“I think it was in 2012 the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points.
“That is a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is, and so vocal about it, that is a huge chunk of it.
“You’re not just voting for a woman if it’s Hillary (Clinton). Yes you’re voting because she’s a woman, but certainly because Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t really want that kind of world he’s painting.”

Is President Trump Afraid of Pete Buttigieg and the Homosexual Community as President Obama Was and So Many Other People Are? Daniel Whyte III Warns President Trump That If He Compromises on the Sin and Foolishness of Homosexuality, He Will Face the Consequences of Losing His Legacy as Obama Did
Rex Tillerson meets with Democrats and is immediately called ‘stupid’ by Trump.
Nancy Pelosi says something negative about him and he immediately calls her ‘crazy Nancy’ and says she ‘has lost it’.
Kamala Harris strongly questions Attorney General William Barr and Trump immediately calls her a ‘nasty’ woman.
Elizabeth Warren says she is an Indian and Trump immediately calls her ‘Pocahontas’.
Joe Biden announces he is going to run for president and Trump immediately calls him ‘sleepy Joe’.
Bernie Sanders announces he is going to run for president again and Trump immediately calls him ‘crazy Bernie’.
Pete Buttigieg basically challenges Trump’s manhood, calls him a ‘draft-dodger’ and accuses him of ‘faking a disability’ to avoid Vietnam War ‘so that somebody else could go in his place’. He called Trump a liar, saying he is only ‘paying lip service’ to the homosexual community, and we hear nothing from Trump.
President Trump needs to stop listening to his daughter, Ivanka, and start listening to God’s Word and the Christian advisers who are still with him. He needs to tell the world he is personally against the evil practice of homosexuality, that it is a sin in God’s sight and it is unnatural, and that he regrets that President Obama and the Supreme Court caused the government to sanction it in this nation.
Most people are afraid of the homosexual community because of their well-known and persistent volatility and vindictiveness, but President Trump needs to be warned by his Christian advisers that just like he has taken on other issues and changed the game he needs to take on this issue and change the game. That is why God has put him in office, and if he does not do so he will suffer the consequences as President Obama did.
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg accused President Donald Trump on Thursday of posing as a disabled American in order to escape the Vietnam War draft.
Trump never served in uniform, earning five deferments from the draft – including a medical exemption, for ‘bone spurs.’
Asked Thursday during a Washington Post event whether Trump should have followed 2.7 million other Americans into active duty, Buttigieg didn’t skip a beat.
‘I have a pretty dim view of his decision to use his privileged status to fake a disability in order to avoid serving in Vietnam,’ he said.
Later Buttigieg ad-libbed a comparison between himself and the real estate tycoon with a lengthy TV pedigree.
‘I don’t have a problem standing up to somebody who was working on Season Seven of “Celebrity Apprentice” when I was packing my bags for Afghanistan,’ he said.
Buttigieg, a 37-year-old veteran, is the Democratic mayor of South Bend, Indiana. He would be the youngest president in U.S. history. He would also be the first openly gay American leader. He served as a reserve Navy intelligence officer and was deployed to Afghanistan for seven months in 2014.
Asked if he thought Trump actually faked a disability, he shot back: ‘Do you believe he has a disability?’
‘That’s exactly what he did,’ Buttigieg declared, saying the president had engaged in ‘manipulating the ability to get a diagnosis.’
‘If you were a conscientious objector, I’d admire that,’ he said.
‘But this is somebody who, I think it’s fairly obvious to most of us, took advantage of the fact that he was the child of a multimillionaire in order to pretend to be disabled so that somebody could go to war in his place.’
The president famously received five separate draft deferments during the 1960s and 70s, including one for a medical condition – a bone spur in his heel – that the diagnosing doctor’s children said last year was a ‘favor’ for Trump’s late father.
As candidate Trump navigated the instant firestorm of his early verbal slams at Sen. John McCain, dismissing his iconic war-hero status because ‘he was captured,’ he was asked to explain why he never served in uniform.
After an unperturbed Trump told reporters that day about his bone spur, he waved off a question about which foot had been the problem, saying someone would ‘have to check the records.’ He later claimed it was both.
Trump told radio shock-jock Howard Stern in 1997 that surviving the sex-fueled 1980s in Manhattan was his ‘personal Vietnam.’
He said bed-hopping with models made him feel like a ‘great and very brave soldier,’ and that he was ‘lucky’ to escape without a venereal disease.
Stern said that, in private, he and Trump had previously compared every woman’s vagina to a ‘potential land mine.’
‘There is some real danger there,’ Trump joked during the broadcast.
Ultimately, he conceded to New Hampshire voters in 2015 that he felt ‘a little guilty’ for not serving in Vietnam.
McCain said months before he died that he didn’t fault Trump for finding a way to avoid the draft, but criticized the loopholes that gave sons of the wealthy a way out.
He had said in a 2017 C-SPAN interview that the U.S. military ‘drafted the lowest-income level of America, and the highest-income level found a doctor that would say they had a bone spur.’
Later on ‘The View,’ he put the obvious jab at the president in perspective.
‘I don’t consider him so much a draft dodger as I feel that the system was so wrong, that certain Americans could evade their responsibilities to serve the country,’ McCain said.
The daughters of a now-dead podiatrist have claimed that he provided Trump’s bone spur diagnosis in exchange for commercial rent concessions from the future president’s father Fred.
Elysa Braunstein, 56, and Sharon Kessel, 53, made the sensational claim to the New York Times, claiming their father Dr. Larry Braunstein diagnosed Trump in 1968.
Dr. Braunstein died in 2007, and the Times was unable find any documentary evidence to back up the daughters’ claims. The daughters are both Democrats and say they do not like the president.
‘I know it was a favor,’ Elysa Braunstein told the Times, adding that her father had implied that Trump did not have the foot ailment that disqualified him from military service. ‘But did he examine him? I don’t know.’
As president, Trump has made two separate trips to Vietnam including an aborted summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
And he has slammed Connecticut Democratic Sen. Dick Blumenthal as ‘Da Nang Dick’ for exaggerating his military service record to include overseas service in Vietnam that never happened.
Contrary to his claims, Blumenthal was never deployed to Vietnam as part of his Marine Corps Reserve service. He later confessed that he had ‘misspoken about my service, and I regret that and I take full responsibility.’

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg fired back at President Donald Trump’s recent comment about being “absolutely fine” with the mayor’s gay marriage, sarcastically saying “that’s nice” while pointing out the administration’s poor record on LGBT citizens.
Buttigieg was on the campaign trail in Des Moines, Iowa, Friday evening at an event labeled as a book club discussion about “Shortest Way Home,” which he released earlier this year.
But it was his comments on the Trump administration’s record on LGBT rights that might spark the most interest.
“Even though they’re paying lip service to the idea of — like the president was asked about my marriage, so he could have the opportunity to say he’s fine with it,” Buttigieg said. “That’s nice.”
Trump was asked in a Fox News interview on Thursday about Buttigieg appearing on stage at campaign events with his husband, Chasten.
“I think it’s absolutely fine, I do,” Trump responded. “I think it’s great. I think that’s something that perhaps some people will have a problem with; I have no problem with it whatsoever.”
