  • President Donald Trump told reporters on Tuesday morning: "I don't know Prince Andrew."
  • However, there are photos of the two men attending functions and chatting effusively to each other dating as far back as February 2000, and as recently as June 2019.
  • Prince Andrew's reputation has a taken a massive hit since he gave a prime-time interview about his relationship with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
  • Trump has also sought to distance himself from Epstein in recent months.
  • Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday denied knowing Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II currently   facing public scrutiny over his friendship   with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Trump made the claim at a press conference in London, where he is attending a   summit with NATO leaders on Tuesday and Wednesday .

"I don't know Prince Andrew but it's a tough story, it's a very tough story," he told reporters,   according to Reuters .

But a series of photos of the two men together — dating as far back as 2000, and as recently as June 2019, say otherwise.

This photo from February 12, 2000 shows then-real estate developer Trump, his then-girlfriend Melania Knauss, and Andrew at Mar-a-Lago, Trump's private golf club in Palm Beach, Florida.

On the same evening, Trump was pictured with Epstein, and his alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, who appear to have been attending the same event as Prince Andrew.

The two men met again in early June 2019, when Trump went to London for D-Day memorial celebrations.

It's not clear if they had met each other again between 2000 and 2019, as there are no photos of them together in public.

However,   the two men carried out multiple engagements together in June , which included a breakfast meeting and a service at Westminster Abbey to honor military veterans. They were photographed greeting each other effusively at the time.

Andrew was also seen speaking to Trump's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, at a Buckingham Palace reception later that night.

Trump was at the same reception speaking to the Queen.

The Queen is expected to host another reception for NATO leaders, including Trump, on Tuesday night.

However, Andrew — who was two weeks ago   stripped of his royal duties "for the foreseeable future"   — was left off the guest list, the   Evening Standard   and   The Sun   reported.

She also   canceled a scheduled party   for Andrew's 60th birthday,   The Sunday Times reported   last week.

Andrew came under further fire on Monday night , when BBC's "Panorama" aired a program featuring Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre Roberts detailing her alleged sexual abuse by the prince.

"This is not some sordid sex story," Giuffre said. "This is a story of being trafficked. This is a story of abuse, and this is a story of your guys' royalty." 

"In the car Ghislaine tells me that I have to do for Andrew what I do for Jeffrey and that just made me sick," Giuffre said, referring to Epstein's ex-girlfriend and alleged madam,   Ghislaine Maxwell . "I just didn't expect it from royalty. I didn't expect it from someone people look up to and admire."

Andrew has repeatedly denied "any form of sexual contact or relationship" with Giuffre, claiming in another BBC interview last month that he had been at a party in the Woking branch of Pizza Express with his daughter at the time of the alleged meeting.

Trump has also distanced himself from Epstein despite   claiming   in 2002 that the two men shared a long friendship. Kellyanne Conway, the president's counselor, said this year that Trump hadn't spoken to Epstein "in 10 or 15 years," and called the charges leveled against Epstein "disgusting" and "obviously criminal."

Claiming not to know Prince Andrew was not the only falsehood Trump gave at his Tuesday morning press conference.

He repeated a false claim that he predicted the outcome of the 2016 Brexit referendum "the day before" the result, while he was opening his Turnberry golf course in Scotland.

However, the Brexit vote was on June 23, 2016, and Trump was not at Turnberry until June 24,   Insider's Thomas Colson noted .

To his sycophants his lying isn't a bug, it's a feature. His religious conservative supporters know they don't actually have an argument based on facts, so supporting someone who lies so easily is their next best option for forcing their religious beliefs into secular society. And the fact that his lying bothers Democrats so much is just an added bonus to them.

I MEET people all the time in social settings but don't "know" them. Just another hit piece for some to run with..........like this little tidbit from the seeded article.........

" It's not clear if they had met each other again between 2000 and 2019, as there are no photos of them together in public."

Hell, I don't know, well yes I do, if I can remember some of my wife's co-workers and have been to many celebrations and parties with them over the last 10 years.

but the Clintons.

They are so miserably predictable. Bill Clinton hasn't held any office for nearly 20 years now but he's still their "go to" dead horse. And trying to claim their guy isn't any worse than Bill Clinton is such a sad low bar they have set, especially after they screamed at the sky with impotent faux outrage and impeached him for lying about a blow job and proclaimed it was to re-establish honor to the office of the Presidency. Now they've elected and are supporting a man who cheated on all three of his wives, has been accused of sexual assault by more than two dozen women, has admitted in his own words that he doesn't "even wait" for consent and just grabs women he finds attractive by their genitals, paid hundreds of thousand to keep porn stars quiet about numerous illicit affairs during the campaign which is also a campaign finance crime, has disrespected gold star families, called ally African nations "shitholes", he abused his charity which is now defunct and owes millions in fines, he said of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein "I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy, He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”, he called Mexicans "rapists", he said he and the murderous dictator Kim Jong Un "fell in love", he said he wants Americans to stand up and listen to him like the subjugated North Koreans do for their despot, he said he believes the vile piece of crap Vladimir Putin over US intelligence, said he "knows more than the Generals" when it comes to fighting terrorism even though he used 5 deferments including phony claims of bone spurs to avoid serving our country, and most recently he withheld $400 million in congressionally approved military aid for an ally saying he would only release it on the condition they publicly announce an investigation into Trumps primary political opponent.

And what do we hear from Republicans?.... "But the Clintons!....". It's really hilarious to watch them shift from claiming Democrats should "Get over" the 2016 election and stop complaining about the past, but as soon as you point out some distasteful Trump trait they jump in with 25 year old accusations against Bill Clinton.

I wondered how long it would take somebody to bring that up. Just because someone has their picture taken at a photo op does not mean you really know a particular person on a level below that.

Considering that Randy Andy has basically  been thrown out of the Royal family and his funding cut off, maybe he will become a barista at Star Bucks or cage cleaner at the zoo.

Is shaking hands or posing for pictures at special events supposed to be significant of something that matters? There are people with thousands of Facebook friends. Does anybody really think of all those people as "friends?" If the only way Trump "knows" a person is through the usual hand-shaking and photo ops, I'm fine with him saying he doesn't know the guy. If they play golf or otherwise hang out together, that's different.

If it was somehow advantageous to Trump, he would no doubt say he is great friends with Prince Andrew.  He will say anything if it benefits him.  His word is worthless either way.

“Knowing” someone - especially when you are like to be asked questions about the person - can mean different things to different people. For example, you and I have exchanged comments with each other but I wouldn’t say I “know” you.

I have had the good fortune of meeting both my Congressional representative and my local rep in the state senate at events where I was a prominent person in the proceedings (in other words, they literally came to see what I was doing). I even had brief conversations with them. I still wouldn’t go around saying I “knew” them. Maybe that’s just me.

Another thing, Trump has a habit of denying knowing people (Epstein, the two Russians, and now PA) when proof exists that he does.  He thinks that by doing that, their stink does not get on him but his stink already exists.  He believes that we will forget about it if he denies it.  You will, but I won't and either will history.

Trump knows nobody.  The opportunity and convenience is all that mattered to him.  He is an impersonal man.
