President Donald Trump heads to London this week with his entire family. He’ll be meeting with the royal family, including Princes William and Harry. But Trump has an unfortunate history that will make things a little awkward when he meets Princess Diana’s children.
Last year, when Harry was getting married, there were rumors that former President Barack Obama might be invited to the wedding because he’s become friends with Harry. Trump, however, would not be invited, so there were multiple media stories about the awkwardness. If Obama was invited and Trump was not, it might be seen as an international snubbing.
But things got worse when a 1997 interview with Trump surfaced recently. Just after “The People’s Princess” was killed, Trump claimed that Diana had been attracted to him, The Express recalled.
According to Trump, he could have “nailed” her if he wanted.
Friends of Princess Diana say that she was concerned that Trump was actually “stalking her.”
It was during an interview with Howard Stern that the host asked: “Why do people think it’s egotistical of you to say you could’ve gotten Lady Di? You could’ve gotten her, right? You could’ve nailed her.”
“I think I could have,” Trump said, obviously not observing the kind of men Diana was interested in at the time had a more svelte physique.
“She was actually really beautiful,” he said. “I thought she was supermodel beautiful. She had times when she didn’t look great and she had times when she looked better than anyone in the world.”
Just days after Trump meets with Prime Minister Theresa May, she will step down as her party’s top leader. Trump also has had a difficult time with the English royals in the past. He struggled walking between the guards with Her Majesty the Queen, walking in front of her and blocking her view. She was forced to walk around his hefty stature awkwardly.
‘No locks’: GOPer says kids at migrant camps are ‘free to leave anytime’ but they don’t because they like it
Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) argued on Monday that children at border detention facilities are "free to leave" if they do not like the conditions.
In an interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Burgess said that he has not personally seen the appalling conditions that media often describe for the children at the centers.
"So you think this is fictional?" Hayes asked.
"I don't know if it's hyperbole," Burgess replied. "Hatred for this president is so intense that people are liable to say anything."
"I've been to the [detention center] at Casa Padre," the congressman added. "Yes, it's a restored K-Mart. But you know what? There's not a lock on the door. Any child is free to leave at anytime but they don't. You know why? Because they are well taken care of."
Kushner’s ‘Time Square Dream’ real estate project is failing: report
In 2018, Jared Kushner's real estate empire was in serious trouble — 666 Fifth Avenue, which Kushner had purchased at the top of the market just before the financial crisis, was hemorrhaging money and unable to rent out all its space. The company averted disaster with a bailout from Brookfield Asset Management, a Canadian company with ties to the state investment fund of Qatar.
Now, according to Bloomberg News, Kushner's company is in trouble again as yet another New York property is bleeding red ink.
Moderate Dem lawmaker tells CNN why Trump’s ‘appalling behavior’ changed his mind on impeachment
Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), a moderate Democrat and a member of the centrist New Democrat Coalition, went on CNN on Tuesday to explain why he has changed his mind and now supports starting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
In an interview with CNN's John Berman, Himes said that Trump has regularly shown that he doesn't care about obeying the law, as evidenced by his decision to completely shrug off his own Office of Special Counsel's finding that adviser Kellyanne Conway has repeatedly violated the Hatch Act.
"Kellyanne Conway had clearly broken the law and she should be removed from office," Himes said. "And the president said, 'Ah heck, that doesn't matter.'"
