The President was unaware the Duchess wasn't a fan

Donald Trump gave the most Trump response when he learned of Meghan Markle's criticism on Friday.

During an audio interview with The Sun, Trump was asked if he was bummed he wouldn't able to meet Duchess of Sussex during his upcoming U.K., visit despite the fact she openly criticized him during his presidential campaign. Apparently, the President had no idea Markle wasn't a fan.

"I didn't know that. No, I didn't know that. No, I hope she is OK. I didn't know that, no," he said. "So what can I say? No, I didn't know that she was nasty."

If you recall, Trump called his rival Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman" during the presidential campaign, which outraged many Democrats, particularly Clinton's female supporters.

Back in 2016, the former "Suits" star called Trump "divisive" and "misogynistic" on "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore." Markle even said she would stay in Canada -- where the USA series filmed at the time -- if Trump was elected.

"A lot of people are moving here [to the US]," Trump told The Sun in response.

Trump was also asked about how he feels about having an American princess in the UK and if it will help the link between the countries.

"I think it's nice," he replied. "I think it's nice and I am sure she'll do excellently. She'll be very good. She'll be very good. I hope she does."

Markle won't be attending Trump's meetings in the United Kingdom as she's on maternity leave after giving birth to baby Archie with husband Prince Harry earlier this month.

Trump, who will be bringing multiple members of his family along with his wife Melania across the pond, expressed he wants Ivanka, Tiffany, Eric and Donald Trump Jr. to have a "next generation" meeting with Prince William and Harry.

"I think my children will be meeting them," he said. "It would be nice.”

"It will be great seeing the queen for the second time," he added of Queen Elizabeth II. "We had a very good talk the first one. We had a lot of interesting things to say. It really was a great visit."
