His remarks came after an interview with the President was published by British newspaper The Sun on Saturday.

It was during a 2016 appearance on "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore" when Markle, then an actress promoting her show "Suits" and a Hillary Clinton supporter, said she might leave the US if Trump won the presidential election. A lot of people got to know her after everything, but I knew her before [she started dating Harry] and she's the same chick.

Asked if he was sorry to miss out on meeting the American-born Meghan and told that she "wasn't so nice about you" during the campaign, Mr Trump says: "I didn't know that".

"I never called Meghan Markle 'nasty, '" he wrote in the tweet.

Ahead of his big trip to Britain, President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to refute claims that he called Meghan Markle "nasty", a reference to comments he made on tape in an interview with tabloid The Sun. "Made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold!"

During a 2016 interview on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, Meghan said that Trump is "divisive" and "misogynistic".

Trump claims the quote was manufactured by the "Fake News Media", even though his remark can be heard during a recording of the interview released by The Sun.

A royal biographer has branded Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, as "extravagant" and says the British public are unimpressed with her spending habits.

"Now, it could well be a totally made-up story and I'm not saying that I know it's true". "I'm sure she will do excellently".

On Monday, Trump will begin a three-day visit with officials in the United Kingdom, a trip that will start off with a ceremony at Buckhingham Palace that will feature royal hosts, including the Queen.

Daisy McAndrew told Yahoo's the Royal Box about a particularly awkward encounter she was told happened between the two during Meghan's time as a briefcase girl on the American version of Deal or No Deal.

Sort of! "I never called Meghan Markle 'nasty, '" he fired off on Twitter. I hope she does [succeed]'.

Donald Trump arrived at Buckingham Palace for lunch with the Queen, Prince Charles, Prince Harry and other senior royals today as Britain rolled out the red carpet for the leader of the free world.

In the evening, The Queen will host a State Banquet at Buckingham Palace and both Her Majesty and the President will make speeches.
