Donald Trump just made a very bold claim about the Queen

This month saw Donald Trump’s second UK tour, with the President staying for three days in London as a guest of the Queen.

The Trump family arrived en masse, with their full UK tour itinerary ranging from afternoon tea with Prince Charles and Camilla to a sit down state banquet (that reportedly failed to receive many RSVPs from politicians).

But while Donald Trump has made a few blunders since, from the controversial Meghan Markle ‘nasty’ comments to referring to Prince Charles as ‘the Prince of Whales’, it was his statement this week that really made news.

In case you missed it, the US president claimed that the Queen ‘had the most fun in 25 years’ during his visit.

Yes, really.

‘I had such a great relationship and we were laughing and having fun,’ Donald Trump said of his stay with the Queen during a phone interview on Fox and Friends. ‘Her people told me she hadn’t had such fun in 25 years.’

He continued: ‘Now, then I got criticised for it because we were having too much, but it doesn’t matter.’

Hmmmm.

Unsurprisingly, the royal family are yet to respond to the claims, but we’re sure Donald Trump will be tweeting about it soon.
