U.S. President Donald Trump is denying knowing Prince Andrew despite many photos over the years which suggest otherwise.
In the midst of a sex trafficking scandal surrounding the Prince, Trump was asked about Andrew while in London for the NATO meetings.
“I don’t know Prince Andrew but it’s a tough story. It’s a very tough story. I don’t know him,” Trump claimed.
A number of pictures tell a different story. There is one of the President with Prince Andrew during Trump’s state visit to the U.K. in June.
Another shows Trump and Prince Andrew at Mar-a-Lago, Florida in 2000 with now First Lady Melania Trump, who was Trump’s girlfriend at the time.
And a tweet from Andrew’s official account about a breakfast meeting with Trump during the state visit, is accompanied by several more pictures.
Prince Andrew, is at the center of a number of allegations by an American woman, who claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 at the behest of the late sex trafficker Jeffery Epstein.
Andrew has denied every knowing the woman, saying her claims are false and without foundation.
