Donald Trump donned a hat made famous by Sir Winston Churchill today but admitted Britain's greatest prime minister 'looked much better' as he revealed the secrets of his state visit.

The President looked delighted as he put on the Lock & Co black hat - monochromed with his initials 'DJT' - given as a gift by Piers Morgan at the end of a world exclusive interview with Good Morning Britain this morning.

The leader of the free world's conversation with Piers is his only one-to-one with either a UK or US network during his historic three-day state visit to Britain this week.

Paying tribute to Mr Churchill as Britain, America and other allies commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day today, Mr Trump said: 'He's right up there. He would certainly be a hero', adding there are 'similarities' between the two leaders.

He said: 'He was able to handle pressure very well. Hitler was unstoppable at the time - he was going through countries like cheese. He was calling Roosevelt saying: "You gotta get in, you gotta get in". He was a great man who reacted so well under the gun, under pressure. There are not many people like that'.

In their 33-minute chat inside Churchill's War Rooms in Westminster Mr Trump revealed that Prince Charles spoke passionately for almost 90-minutes about saving the environment.

But it appears he still needs some convincing on climate change and said: ‘I believe there is a change in weather and that it changes both ways. Don’t forget, it used to be called global warming, that wasn’t working, then it was called climate change, now it’s actually called extreme weather'.

The President also spoke warmly of 'terrific guy' Prince Harry, and denied the Royal had avoided him at Buckingham Palace.  He also returned to his remarks about Meghan Markle, who branded him a misogynist in 2016, saying she 'was nasty to me - and that's OK'.
