Mr Trump praised the new monarch in October last year, saying King Charles had “a great path about him” and would do “very well” in his new role.

Mr Trump added the King has “an agenda” and “a strong view of things”.
The former President has often spoken of his admiration for the British royal family, particularly Queen Elizabeth II.
Speaking earlier about his first meeting with the late monarch, he said: “We’ll go upstairs and have tea then. And I didn’t know that – it was supposed to take 15 minutes, but it took about an hour.
“Because we understood each other. And she liked our First Lady and our First Lady liked her.
“But we got on fantastically. But time went by – you know, sometimes you get along and time goes by.”
