During President Donald's visit to the UK, Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan was the only journalist to interview him.

Since speaking to the controversial president earlier this year, Morgan has gained the reputation of being Trump's go-to interviewer in the UK. This morning (July 16), GMB shared videos of the world exclusive interview on board Air Force One.

 

 

Trump visited the UK on Friday (July 13) to meet with Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen, and despite protests of around tens of thousands strong and a giant inflatable baby Trump floating over Parliament, the US President insists his visit was a "success".

During his interview with Morgan, Trump described the Queen as a "fantastic woman" and said that she is "so beautiful". He also discussed Brexit, claiming: "Nobody had any idea how complex it was going to be."

As viewers watched, many accused Morgan of going easy on Trump.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other angry viewers described the interview as "meaningless", with Morgan not taking Trump to task on any of the important issues.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One viewer tweeted: "Piers Morgan is on This Morning literally oozing love for Trump. It is truly cringeworthy."

"What a bloody shambles this interview was! @susannareid100 correct to say Trump is lying!" another said. "And what a coward Morgan was to not tell Trump he was lying! Would love to have seen Morgan treat Trump like he did the Trump protester last week! #nochanceofthat."

Another added: "Embarrassingly sycophantic interview by Piers Morgan. Why this man is given air time is beyond me."

Not many loving this one, then.

Good Morning Britain airs Mondays through Fridays on ITV.
