President Donald Trump might need some refreshing of the memory after he claimed that he had never used the word "nasty" to refer to Meghan Markle.

Many have been quick to point out that Trump might be remembering a different version of history, as there was a clear record of him actually using the exact same word in a comment aimed at Prince Harry's wife.

In a new interview, Trump apparently said this upon learning that Markle does not like his behavior towards women, "what can I say? I didn't know that she was nasty."

Talking to Piers Morgan, Trump responded to these accusations during his UK state visit: "They said some of the things that she said, and it's actually on tape. And I said: "Well, I didn't know she was nasty." I wasn't referring to she's nasty. I said she was nasty about me. And essentially I didn't know she was nasty about me. You know what? She's doing a good job; I hope she enjoys her life... I think she's very nice."

He went on to explain: "She was nasty to me. And that's okay for her to be nasty, it's not good for me to be nasty to her and I wasn't."

Trump also said that he had spoken to Prince Harry and added: "I did, I did and I congratulated him and I think he's a terrific guy. We didn't talk about it...I was going to because it was so falsely put out there. And when you see that transcript, and you see, it's the exact opposite of what they said. Did you look at the transcript?"

It does not look like Trump's attempts to get out of the situation have been too successful either, as many people have commented negatively on his statements online.

The president has had some issues with his public image in recent times, particularly regarding his apparent tendency to lie. And this is not the first time he has been caught misrepresenting past events either.

With all that in mind, it is questionable whether Trump will face any real repercussions for his recent comments, or if things will just proceed as normal in a few days. In the meantime, many have been wondering what to expect from Trump's visit to the UK.

Do you think was mean towards Markle, yes or no?
