Charles Spencer, the brother of Princess Diana, has criticized former US President Donald Trump after he claimed that Diana had “kissed his a–” and viewed him positively.
Spencer took to Twitter to respond to Trump’s claims, saying that his late sister had actually viewed Trump as “worse than an anal fissure”.
Spencer accused Trump of using Diana’s name to promote his real estate ventures and expressed his surprise at the former president’s claims.
Trump had made the comments in a recent interview with Breitbart News while promoting his new book, titled “Letters to Trump”.
The book contains correspondence with several high-profile figures, including Princess Diana, Kim Jong Un, Oprah Winfrey, and the late Queen Elizabeth.
Trump had previously made controversial remarks about Diana, including claiming that he could have had sex with her if she passed an HIV test first.
The book is a compilation of correspondence from “presidents, royals, celebrities and business titans” that Trump hoarded over four decades at his various residences.
Each excerpt includes a photo of the celebrity and commentary from the former president.
Spencer’s response to Trump’s claims highlights the sensitivity of Diana’s legacy and how her name is still used to promote various products and causes.
It also highlights the ongoing controversy surrounding Trump and his public image.
