Piers Morgan announces exclusive chat with Donald Trump in Churchill’s War Rooms

Piers Morgan has revealed he has conducted a 33 minute long interview with President Donald Trump in Winston Churchill's War Rooms.

After meetings with senior members of the royal family and Prime Minister Theresa May this week, Trump sat down with Good Morning Britain host Piers for his only TV interview during his time in the UK.

Piers announced their exclusive chat on his Instagram page and told how he'd quizzed the President on a range of topics from gun control, Brexit and climate change.

Their chat will air on Wednesday's GMB from 6am.

Alongside a snap of him smiling beside the 45th US President, Piers posted on social media: "WORLD EXCLUSIVE* Just finished a 33-minute interview with President Donald Trump in Churchill’s War Rooms – his only U.K. or US TV interview during his state visit. Airs on GMB from 6am tomorrow. Royals, Churchill, Brexit, Iran, guns, climate change & more."

Trump is currently on a packed three-day visit to the UK to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Despite a hectic schedule, Trump took time to meet with Piers who has in the past admitted he considers himself to be a 'good friend' of the President after their meeting on the Celebrity Apprentice in 2008.


Piers also landed an interview with Trump in July 2018.

The two sat down on board Air Force One where they discussed Putin and a possible trade deal with the UK following Brexit.

During the chat Trump admitted that he got emotional on the subject of meeting the Queen as it would have meant so much to his late mother.

The President's latest visit to the UK has provoked a strong backlash among some groups.

Around 250,000 protesters are said to have taken part in an anti-Trump rally in the capital, where labour leader Jeremy Corbyn addressed the crowds.

Before the demonstrations took place, Piers slammed those taking part as 'warped and pathetic.'


Hitting out on Good Morning Britain , Piers said: "There's something a bit warped about our values. Trump's really worse than Putin or King Salman? Is he?"

"I will welcome the President of the United States here. But there'll be thousands running to the streets with their baby blimps and their posters.

"I think on D-Day week it's a little bit disrespectful. Because when we needed the Americans in World War II they were there for us."

Protesters have flown a 20ft blimp of Trump portrayed as an angry orange baby and set up a 16ft robot of him sitting on a golden toilet.
