Donald Trump has denied knowing Prince Andrew, despite multiple photos of the two together, including several of them meeting in June this year. The president, who is in the United Kingdom for a NATO summit, took questions from the media Tuesday morning.
Asked about his thoughts on the allegations against Prince Andrew and the royal’s decision to step back from public life, Trump responded: “I don’t know Prince Andrew, but it’s a tough story, it’s a very tough story.” However, the men have met on several occasions.

“Who? Prince who? No, I don’t know any Prince Andrew. Who is he? A British royal? He may have brought me some coffee once? A lot of people say he is nuts. Also, I prefer royals who don’t get caught with Epstein’s teenage hookers.” pic.twitter.com/9aGte1N1qx

.@realDonaldTrump: we wouldn’t want the NHS even if they handed it to us on a silver platter.
Also Trump: everything is on the table in a US-UK trade deal, including the NHS.

Trump just said “I don’t know Prince Andrew, but that’s a tough story, it’s a very tough story, I don’t know”
Here he is not knowing him at Westminster Abbey, taking a nice stroll on a separate occasion he didn’t know him and finally not knowing him whilst partying with Epstein. pic.twitter.com/wpVoVdfwBn
