Donald Trump says the Queen is an ‘incredible woman’
The former US President has made headlines after he was interviewed by Piers Morgan for the new channel TalkTV. During the interview, the pair spoke about the Royal Family and Mr Trump praised the longest-reigning monarch and referred to Her Majesty, who recently celebrated her 96th birthday, as “an incredible woman”.
Mr Trump told Piers: “I have a lot of respect for the Queen – She’s incredible.
“She loves her country, I think she’s incredible.”
He added: “Look at her, she’s been Queen for what, 70 years or something and she’s never made a mistake”.
Trump then referred to the Queen’s handling of a intruder event that happened at the Palace 40 years ago.
An intruder, later named as Michael Fagan, broke into Buckingham Palace and made his way into the Queen’s bedroom in the early hours of July 9, 1982.
Trump said: “Even when the guy [Fagan] broke into her room, sits him down, talks to him”.
Mr Trump added: “Some of the kids, have made a little mistake every once in a while, sometimes a big one”.
Piers then asked him about the Prince Andrew scandal.
Trump said: “It’s a terrible thing.
“It was terrible for a lot of people”.
He continues: “The Queen, I don’t know, has she ever even made a mistake?.
“She’s an incredible woman”.

The former US President also bragged that the 96-year-old “had never had such a good time” than when he was sitting next to him at a state banquet in 2019.
He said she was “laughing and smiling” throughout the event, which was held at Buckingham Palace.
He attended the event along with his wife, Melania, and his older children.
The Queen has kept public appearances to a minimum in recent months following her well-documented health issues last autumn.
She did, however, attend the memorial service the Royal Family held last month for her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.
