Despite Recent Breakfast Meeting, Trump Says he Doesn’t Know Prince Andrew

When someone in President Donald Trump’s orbit comes into trouble, he has a habit of downplaying his relationship with that person. Following Gordon Sondland’s recent testimony, he said the UN Ambassador came from another campaign and he barely knew him. Trump also attempted to downplay his relationship with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. While there are a number of photos of the two together, the President claimed he was “not a fan.”

Britain’s Prince Andrew is currently facing scrutiny from his own friendship with Epstein. Today the London press queried Trump, in town for a NATO conference, about his relationship with the royal. Despite having a breakfast meeting with him in June and photographs of the two speaking, the President claimed he didn’t know Andrew.

Prince Andrew is fresh off a disastrous interview where he was peppered with questions about Epstein. When the press asked Trump about the royal, he replied, “I don’t know him, no. I don’t know Prince Andrew, but it’s a tough story, it’s a very tough story.”

Photos soon emerged of the two men together. Comedian James Felton even shared photos of Trump, Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein at the same party.

Twitter sleuths also chased down photo’s of a June breakfast meeting between the two men courtesy of the Duke of York account. The post read, “On day 2 of the US State Visit, The Duke of York (Prince Andrew) and Prime Minister Theresa May welcome President Donald Trump to St James’s Palace for a UK/US Senior Business Leaders Group Breakfast Meeting.”
