Donald Trump joked that he wanted Princess Diana to get a HIV test
Donald Trump talked about “nailing” Princess Diana in an interview months after her death.
The current president of the US joked that he would make the late Princess of Wales take an HIV test before sleeping with her.
The interview with Howard Stern took place in November 1997, just 65 days after the Princess had died in a tragic car crash.
Before her death at age 36, the people’s princess worked hard to transform global attitudes to HIV/AIDS.
This influence spread to her son Prince Harry calling for people to get tested for HIV in memory of his late mother earlier this year.
But apparently her efforts did not affect Trump, who was only too willing to join in with radio hosts who asked whether he would ask Diana to get tested.
“Why do people think it’s egotistical of you to say you could’ve gotten with Lady Di?” Stern asked Trump during the interview, made available on factba.se.
“You could’ve gotten her, right? You could’ve nailed her,” he added.
