As Express reports, in a 1997 interview, shortly after Princess Diana’s death, Trump claimed that Diana had been attracted to him.
Interviewer Howard Stern asked Trump, “Why do people think it’s egotistical of you to say you could’ve gotten Lady Di? “You could’ve gotten her, right? You could’ve nailed her.”
Trump answered, “I think I could have.”
“She was actually really beautiful. I thought she was supermodel beautiful. She had times when she didn’t look great and she had times when she looked better than anyone in the world. But she had the height, she had magnificent skin, she was a great beauty.”
President Trump then went on to suggest that if Diana had been “dating him” instead of Dodi Fayed, she could have survived the Paris car accident.
“I know that tunnel in Paris. It’s got, like, a 30-mile limit. If you look at this tunnel – and I really know that tunnel well, I’ve been through that tunnel many times – you can’t go more than like 30, 40 miles.”
Selina Scott, a friend of the royal family, claimed that Trump gave Diana “the creeps”. Scott said:
“He bombarded Diana with massive bouquets of flowers. She became increasingly concerned. It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her.”
