The US president was interviewed by Morgan in the Churchill War Rooms in London, a meeting which aired on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday 5th June.

In the interview, Trump discussed the NHS, Iran, Brexit, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, climate change and US gun laws.

Notably, Trump appeared to U-turn on comments about the NHS he had earlier made at a press conference with Prime Minister Theresa May, when he said that the NHS would be “on the table” in a trade deal.

He told Morgan: “I don’t see it as being on the table. Somebody asked me a question today and I said ‘Everything’s up for negotiation’ because everything is, but that’s not something I would consider being a part of trade, that’s not trade.”
