Donald Trump has responded to claims that he was became "bored" in a meeting with Prince Charles back in 2019.

The former US President spoke about his run-in with the Prince of Wales in a new interview with ex-UKIP politician Nigel Farage – which aired on GB News on Wendesday night (December 1).

Trump met Charles, who is the Queen's son and next in line to the throne, during his 2019 state visit to the UK.

He said that Charles spoke about the environment for "most of the meeting", but he knew that the environment was the main purpose of the chat.

Nigel brought up the claims that Trump was bored, an allegation made by one of Trump's former press secretaries – Stephanie Grisham.

Asking Trump about Charles, Nigel said: "You had a meeting with Charles and it was reported by one of your former press secretaries that you were somewhat bored by the meeting…."

The 45th President replied: "No, I wasn't bored. I like Charles, I thought he was great.

"He's an environmentalist. He talks about the environment most of the meeting which was fine – I understood that was the purpose of the meeting and he was telling me his views."

"I was not bored at all, no, I think Charles is a wonderful person."

The former White House Press Secretary, Grisham, made the claims in her memior, I'll Take Your Questions Now.

In the book, she wrote that Trump "complained that the conversation had been terrible." and that Donald's wife Melania Trump laughed at his disappointed reaction.

Melania had reportedly said: "Oh, yes, he was very bored".

Grisham also alleged that Trump rolled his eyes and complained that Charles spoke about "nothing but climate change".

Charles recently spoke to world leaders during the opening ceremony of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow.

He said: "‘I can only urge you, as the world’s decision-makers, to find practical ways of overcoming differences so we can all get down to work, together, to rescue this precious planet and save the threatened future of our young people."
