Donald Trump tried to date Princess Diana (and failed, obviously)

Donald Trump and Princess Diana

And in *more* outrageous Trump news

Just when we thought Donald Trump quotes couldn't get ANY crazier, his slight obsessive crush on Princess Diana is suddenly unearthed. And, in typical Trump manner, yes, he did not mince his words...

It seems that back in the mid-1990s, President Donald Trump had his eyes on Princess Diana.

Rolling in the same circles, Donald Trump and Lady Di often attended the same charity events - it helped that she was reportedly dating New York billionaire Theodore Forstmann at the time. Trump offered her a complimentary membership to Mar-a-Lago, his Florida golf club, and she said no.

When Prince Charles' and Princess Diana's divorce was finalised in 1996, it's believed that Trump sent flowers over to Kensington Palace, which TV journalist, and friend of Diana, Selina Scott, said gave her 'the creeps'. These floral deliveries continued, making Princess Diana more and more uncomfortable.

And then, in 1997, weeks after Princess Diana's death (which is set to be commemorated with a memorial day especially for Princess Diana), Donald Trump appeared on The Howard Stern Show where they had a conversation which began with Trump saying Diana held a 'supermodel beauty' and escalated to Stern asking 'You could have gotten her, right? You could have nailed her?' and Trump replying, 'I think I could have.'

He also wrote in one of his books, 'The Art of the Comeback', 'I only have one regret in the women department—that I never had the opportunity to court Lady Diana Spencer.'


Then, back in 2000, Trump spoke about Princess Diana again, putting her in his list of 'women he's like to sleep with', saying that he would have slept with her 'without even hesitation,' adding, 'she was crazy, but those are minor details.'

But, in true Donald Trump fashion, he totally denied any of this last year in an interview with Piers Morgan. The host asked him if it was all true and the now US President answered, 'totally false. It was so false.'
