Donald Trump denied romantically pursuing Princess Diana in an interview that aired Tuesday, despite previously claiming he would have slept with the late royal “without even hesitation.”
Trump told radio host Howard Stern in 2000 that Diana was “a great beauty,” before adding that “she was crazy, but these are minor details.”
When Stern asked: “Would you have slept with her?” Trump replied: “Without even hesitation.”
In a separate interview just months after Diana’s death in 1997, Stern asked Trump whether he could have had sex with her.
“You could have gotten her, right? You could have nailed her?” the shock jock asked.
Trump replied: “I think I could have.”
The two interviews were unearthed by BuzzFeed in February.
However on Tuesday, the presumptive Republican nominee gave a seemingly different account to Piers Morgan, host of Good Morning Britain, the breakfast show of NBC News’ U.K. partner ITV.

Trump said this was “totally false” but added he “thought she was lovely” when the pair met in New York.
