Donald Trump boasts of his ‘automatic chemistry’ with the Queen but denies fist-bumping her on UK visit

DONALD Trump has bragged about his "automatic chemistry" with the Queen – but has denied fist-bumping her.

The US president said he and Her Majesty were "talking solid" when they met on his state visit to the UK.


In an interview with Fox News, Trump said the royal was a "spectacular woman" and told how others had noticed how he'd connected with her.

He said: "I think I can say I really got to know her because I sat with her many times and we had automatic chemistry, you understand that feeling, it’s a good feeling."

Trump met the head of the royal family several times during the three-day visit to the UK, including at a state banquet at Buckingham Palace and a commemorative D-Day event in Portsmouth.

But Trump insisted he did not fist-bump the 93-year-old monarch after photos of him appearing to do so went viral this week.

I think I can say I really got to know her because I sat with her many times and we had automatic chemistry, you understand that feeling, it’s a good feeling

When asked by Fox News' Laura Ingraham whether he did fist-bump the Queen, Trump responded: "I did not but I had a great relationship, we had a really great time.

"There are those that say they have never seen the Queen have a better time, a more animated time. We had a period where we were talking solid straight, I didn’t even know who the other people at the table were, I never spoke to them, we just had a great time."

AWKWARD HANDSHAKE

Social media users went wild after seeing pictures of Trump's awkward handshake on Monday.

Twitter exploded in disbelief as people questioned how the US President had greeted Her Majesty, but it was just a tricky camera angle.

As the President's tour kicked off, Prince Charles and Camilla greeted Trump and his wife Melania at the Queen's official residence in London.

They led the First Couple across the lawn of the palace garden to where the Monarch was waiting for them.

She's a spectacular woman

Body language expert Judi James told Sun Online: "There were undeniable signals of warmth between Donald Trump and The Queen.

"She was even seen chuckling happily as she waited on the steps of the Palace watching the President taking his troop inspection very seriously, carefully stopping and chatting to guardsmen rather than rushing past as he did on his previous visit."

The Queen hosted lunch for Mr Trump and wife Melania, then led them on a tour of Buckingham Palace – where the Queen presented them with carefully chosen gifts.


What Donald Trump said about meeting the Queen

"The meeting with the Queen was incredible, I think I can say I really got to know her because I sat with her many times and we had automatic chemistry, you understand that feeling, it’s a good feeling but she’s a spectacular woman."

When asked whether he fist-bumped Her Majesty, Trump replied: "I did not but I had a great relationship, we had a really great time. There are those that say they have never seen the Queen have a better time, a more animated time.

"We had a period where we were talking solid straight, I didn’t even know who the other people at the table were, I never spoke to them, we just had a great time."

Trump also said he will "keep conversation going" with the Queen, adding: "She’s a spectacular woman, an incredible woman."
 

The First Couple moved on to Westminster Abbey later, to place a wreath at the grave of the Unknown Warrior.

Mr Trump and the First Lady, Melania, flew to Ireland on Friday where the US leader enjoyed a round of golf at his resort in Doonberg, County Clare, before flying back to Washington on Air Force One.

On Wednesday, Trump also joined the Queen at the historic D-Day commemoration in Portsmouth.

He read out a prayer that his predecessor Roosevelt shared with the nation as part of the moving service of remembrance, attended by more than a dozen leaders from around the world.
