Donald Trump denies he knows Prince Andrew despite picture of them


Donald Trump denies he knows Prince Andrew despite picture of them

Donald Trump has denied knowing Prince Andrew despite meeting him in June this year. 
The US President was asked for his thoughts on the Duke of York stepping down from royal duties at a NATO press conference in London this morning. 
He said: 'I don't know Prince Andrew,' before describing his links with convicted US paedophile Jeffrey Epstein as a 'tough story'.  
But the US leader was photographed smiling and shaking hands with Andrew, 59, at Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace during his state visit to London in June. 
The pair were also pictured together alongside First Lady Melania in Palm Beach, Florida in 2000 at a party also attended by sex offender Epstein and his then-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell. 
It comes the day after Prince Andrew's accuser Virginia Roberts Guiffre told BBC's Panorama programme she was sexually abused by him. Donald Trump was photographed smiling and shaking hands with Andrew, 59, at Westminster Abbey in June

Describing him as 'hideous and sweaty', she claims she was forced to have sex with the Duke three times.
One of the times, after a night out at Tramp nightclub in London, she was just 17. 
Prince Andrew has consistently denied the claims, telling Newsnight during his car crash interview that he had no recollection of ever meeting her. 
A picture of them together he claims has been doctored. 
Other images of Trump and Andrew together include one at No10 Downing Street where he met former Prime Minister Theresa May.
There are also ones of them walking through the grounds of Buckingham Palace as Trump prepared to meet the Queen in June, which were also tweeted out from the Duke of York's official account.

He was asked about the UK General Election, Brexit, the NHS and Jeremy Corbyn but refused to give much away. 
The President denied knowing 'anything about' Mr Corbyn, despite tweeting about him and discussing him on his interview with Nigel Farage on LBC this year. 
He said: 'I know nothing about the gentleman, Jeremy Corbyn.'
On the Election he said he 'didn't want to complicate it' and that he is 'staying out of it', while resting assured 'Boris will do a good job'. 
There has been widespread anxiety at Tory HQ over a potential upset to Boris Johnson's election campaign. 
They feared Trump might say something controversial, but he insisted: 'I'm staying out of it.'
He denied the NHS would be on the table in post-Brexit trade talks, as claimed by Jeremy Corbyn and his 450-page leaked document, saying: 'If you handed it to us on a silver platter, we want nothing to do with it.'  The Duke of York is pictured next to Trump and wife Melania attending a memorial at Westminster Abbey on June 3
