Donald Trump's tweet to Princess Eugenie leaves Britain scratching its head 




 

Even by Donald Trump's standards it was a puzzling Tweet.

More than two days after Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank, the US President took to social media to praise the 'truly beautiful bride' adding, 'she has been through so much and has come out a total winner!'

Yet Twitter users were quick to point out that the 9th in line to the throne had so far enjoyed a relatively straightforward and privileged life.

British opera singer Melinda Hughes, replied to President Trump asking: "What has she been through? Please enlighten us Brits because we have no idea what you're talking about."

Angus Brochan, MP for Braeburn East, quipped "Been through so much...champagne."

The Tweet is believed to refer to a scar on Princess Eugenie's back from an operation for scoliosis aged 12, which was visible above the dipped back of her wedding gown. The condition causes the spine to misalign and make the back appear hunched.

Earlier this year she revealed for the first time her own x-rays showing the damage to her spine and ahead of the wedding spoke of the importance of 'showing people your scars.'

However President Trump's effusive message was in stark contrast to his silence on Twitter following the marriage of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle, after he was snubbed from the wedding.

During the US election campaign in 2016, Miss Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, told The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore than she believed Mr Trump was misogynistic and divisive.

President Trump and wife Melania did make a charity donation as a wedding gift to the Duke and Duchess, but made no public declaration of congratulations.

The Duke and Duchess did not meet the President and First Lady during an official visit in July.

Trump: Iran a 'nation of terror,' was behind tanker attacks

Calling Iran "a nation of terror," President Donald Trump on Friday publicly accused the Persian Gulf nation of responsibility for recent attacks on oil tankers near the strategic Strait of Hormuz. Trump said Iran's culpability was "exposed" by the United States. While Iran has denied being involved in the attacks, U.S. Central Command released footage it said shows Iran's Revolutionary Guard removing an unexploded limpet mine from the Japanese-owned tanker Kokuka Courageous.

Iran not seeking war with US, sending warning: analysts

Amid an intensifying war of words following dual tanker attacks in the Gulf, Iran is not seeking open conflict with the United States but is sending a warning to Washington, analysts say. Tensions around the Gulf shipping channel, vital to the transportation of crude, soared after two tankers came under attack early Thursday, with the US quickly blaming Iran for the incidents. "(Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali) Khamenei and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps are rational actors -- despite how some portray them -- and they will not want, unduly, to invite Iran's annihilation," said Middle East analyst and author Neil Partrick.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, a fierce loyalist of President Donald Trump, will leave her job at the end of the month to return to her home state of Arkansas, Trump said on Thursday. The Republican Sanders, who is 36 and has three young children, has drawn fire from the White House Correspondents Association for limiting daily briefings, with Trump preferring to take questions himself from reporters and command the White House stage. The last briefing was 94 days ago, but Trump answers questions from reporters on a near-daily basis, including two extended sessions with them on Wednesday.
