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.
Trump took out DNI head Dan Coats to install a new acting director in charge of whistleblowers: CIA veteran
Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," a longtime veteran CIA official said the whistleblower, who ran to the inspector general with a complaint about Donald Trump asking Ukraine's president for dirt on Joe Biden, should expect the president and his aides to come after them.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Jonna Mendez said she saw the first warnings signs that something was up in the U.S. intelligence community when the president forced DNI head Dan Coats and his top deputy out.
"Through the lens of someone who spent 27 years at the CIA, the thing that caught my eye instantly was Dan Coats' resignation follow by Sue Gordon," Mendez explained. "The fact that Dan Coats went into a meeting and said 'Sue, you've got to resign' and that she did, truncating a career that clearly hadn't reached its zenith."
GOP’s cancellation of presidential primaries could blow up in Trump’s face — here’s why
In recent weeks, Republican state party committees have been moving to cancel presidential primaries to prevent Never-Trump conservatives, like former Reps. Joe Walsh (R-IL) and Mark Sanford (R-SC) and former Gov. Bill Weld (R-MA), from challenging the president from the right. So far, Republicans in Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, and South Carolina have all announced they will scrap the voting process for 2020.
Mike Pence should be investigated for his part in Ukraine negotiations and ‘we need some answers’: Ex-prosecutor
On MSNBC's "AM Joy" Saturday, former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance agreed with host Joy Reid that Vice President Mike Pence could be involved in the Ukraine whistleblower cover-up — and that Congress needs to act to learn the truth for the American people.
"Let me go to you on this very quickly, Joyce, because here's the question for Mike Pence," said Reid. "Mike Pence has been sort of severed from all of the other questions that are relating to potential impeachment for Donald Trump, that the House is wrestling with right now, but if Pence ... went in knowing why the aid was being held up, went in and spoke to the leader of Ukraine knowing what stick the administration had over them, and in that way was drawn in to this idea of using that stick to try to get what they wanted from Ukraine, does he then face the jeopardy of perhaps also being drawn into the questions of impeachment?"
