In an interview with British media, US President Donald Trump discussed his private conversation with the Queen of England saying she thinks the Brexit is a “very complex problem”.
Divulging such information to the media is seen as a breach in royal protocol.
Trump’s four day visit to the UK has also attracted anger by many who don’t fancy his policies especially as it concerns human right and immigration.
Trump told TV host Piers Morgan that they had discussed the UK’s controversial exit from the European Union.
“She said it’s a very — and she’s right — it’s a very complex problem, I think nobody had any idea how complex that was going to be,” he said according to an interview published by the Mail yesterday. “Everyone thought it was going to be ‘Oh it’s simple, we join or don’t join, or let’s see what happens’,” he said.
Trump and Melania spent 45 minutes with the Queen. “It was a very easy talk,” he told Morgan.
“You know, it’s hard to talk to somebody if you’re, sort of, if there’s not that something special. You know that better than anybody. Sometimes you’ll have a guest on where no matter what you do it’s not working, right?
And then sometimes it’s magic. We had a great, a great feeling.”
Morgan asked: “Did you get the feeling she liked you?”
“Well I don’t want to speak for her,” Trump said, “but I can tell you I liked her. So usually that helps. But I liked her a lot.”
Asked if he had discussed Trump would not say if the 92-year-old monarch told him what she really thinks of Britain’s attempt to leave the European Union.
“Well,” he said, “I can’t talk, you know I’ve heard very strongly from a lot of people, you just don’t talk about that conversation with the Queen, right?
You don’t wanna do that … Let me tell you what I can talk about … she is an incredible woman, she is so sharp, she is so beautiful, when I say beautiful – inside and out. That is a beautiful woman.”
Asked about mass protests against him in London on Friday, the day of the interview, Trump insisted: “‘Some of them are protesting in my favour, you know that?
There are many, many protests in my favour.” The president also answered questions on issues such as the North Korean talks, abortion and immigration.
Trump also confirmed he would run again for the White House in 2020, expecting to win a second term.
