Watch Trump Lie and Say He’s Never Met Britain’s Prince Andrew, ‘I Don’t Know Him!’
Donald Trump might claim to have no idea who Prince Andrew is, but pictures don’t lie…and we know that Trump does.
Trump said the controversy surrounding the 59-year-old son of Queen Elizabeth — he’s accused of having sex with a teen trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein — was a “tough story.” But also, Trump claimed he doesn’t know the guy.
“I don’t know Prince Andrew,” Trump told reporters Tuesday at the NATO summit in London. “But it’s a tough story, it’s a very tough story.”
Trump’s denial quickly fell apart when multiple photos surfaced of him with Andrew, taken over several decades.

In fact, they were photographed together as recently as June, when the two shook hands during the president’s visit to England. There’s even a photo of Trump, Andrew, Melania Trump, and Epstein all together at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida in 2000.
Andrew has been accused of having sex with a teenage girl, Virginia Giuffre, trafficked by Epstein. Giuffre has said she was forced to have sex with the royal in 2001, when she was just 17.
“It didn’t last very long, the whole entire procedure,” she told the BBC program “Panorama” in an interview that aired this week. “It was disgusting. He wasn’t mean or anything, but he got up and he said, ‘Thanks’ and walked out.”
Giuffre alleges her sex-trafficking nightmare actually began at Mar-a-Lago. She said she was first approached by Epstein’s alleged fixer, Ghislaine Maxwell, at Trump’s property, where Giuffre worked as a locker room attendant. She alleged that Epstein later brought her to London, where she was instructed to have sex with Andrew. The royal denies ever having sex with Giuffre.
