Trump claims he ‘doesn’t know’ Prince Andrew despite heaps of photos of the pair
President Donald Trump has claimed he doesn’t know Prince Andrew – despite multiple pictures of the pair together.
When asked for a reaction to the royal’s decision to step back from public life the President said it was a “very tough story”
Photographs show that the pair have met a number of times over a number of years – including at a party with disgraced late US financier Jeffrey Epstein.
Andrew, 59, Queen Elizabeth’s second son, has stepped back from royal duties after he gave an interview last month over his friendship with Mr Epstein.
“I don’t know Prince Andrew but it’s a tough story, it’s a very tough story,” he said when pressed during his visit to London for the NATO mini summit.
The Duke of York is facing fresh scrutiny after Virginia Giuffre’s first UK television interview was aired as part of a BBC Panorama investigation into the duke’s association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
