Donald Trump made the Queen wait for him during his June 2019 royal state visit in order to “builds up excitement”, according to his former lawyer. Michael Cohen spoke about how ‘incredibly disrespectful’ the US President had been to the British monarch during a pre-election debate organised by political betting odds comparison site, Guesser.com. Mr Cohen clashed with Nigel Farage when the former Brexit Party MEP claimed that the American leader held “great affection” for the Queen.

Mr Cohen told him: “I believe he was incredibly disrespectful to the Queen when he was there.

“What was he a half an hour late? Making her wait outside in the heat.

“Donald Trump does this on purpose.

“I have watched as we landed, and people were standing outside in the rain, waiting for us to come out.”

He continued: “What did he say? He said, ‘let them wait’.

“He thinks he’s back on the Apprentice, and that it builds up excitement.

“That’s what he did to the Queen.

“He has no respect for history, he doesn’t even understand or know the history of the UK.”

President Trump is facing off against Democratic hopeful Joe Biden tonight as the US decides its next president.

The ‘Next President’ betting market in the UK has tightened in recent days with pro-Trump trends throughout the weekend, according to Guesser.com.

President Trump has shortened into 3/2 (40 percent chance) while Biden remains the favourite at odds of 1/2.

Mr Farage had claimed that a Trump win would be much more beneficial for the UK because of his ties to the country and his love of things like the monarchy.

The American leader made his first official trip to the UK in June 2019, where he met senior members of the Royal Family.

However, he and his wife, Melania, did reportedly arrive 15 minutes late to an afternoon tea appointment with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

This left the 92-year-old monarch standing around in the summer heat.

Eagle-eyed royal watchers noticed her checking her watch a number of times before the President’s arrival.
