The US president, 72, made the boast to Fox News’ talk show host Laura Ingraham, while he was at the Normandy American cemetery to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. Mr Trump said: “The meeting with the Queen was incredible.

Four years ago on Sunday, Donald Trump descended on an escalator through the pink marble and brass atrium of Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for president, the first step on a journey few believed would take him all the way to the White House. It turns out the 2015 event might not have happened, at least not on June 16.

And the over-the-top staging that featured a crowd including paid actors could have been even more theatrical if one early idea had not been scrapped. Mr Trump vetoed suggestions to feature a live elephant, the symbol of the Republican Party, as he considered it too political.

The president who loves to reminisce about that “famous” Trump Tower moment is trying to recreate the magic as he formally launches his re-election bid Tuesday in Florida. Four years in, Mr Trump still is echoing much of the same divisive rhetoric he let fly when he ditched the speech prepared for that original campaign kickoff.

His 2015 announcement, according to those involved in the effort, was a classic Trump production aimed at highlighting all the things that made Mr Trump, well, Mr Trump: his brashness, his wealth and his skill for lighting rhetorical fires and watching the press scramble to respond.

Donald Trump Boasts About Meeting The 'Prince Of Whales'

Donald Trump Boasts About Meeting The 'Prince Of Whales' It’s fair to say Donald Trump is no stranger to a diplomatic blunder. But the US president took it to the next level on Thursday when he got the name of Prince Charles – one of the royals who literally hosted him *two weeks ago* – completely wrong. Indeed, he might be known as the Prince of Wales in the UK, but it seems like the US leader may have got the wrong end of the stick over Charle’s official title while he was on this side of the pond for a state visit earlier this month... “I meet and talk to ‘foreign governments’ every day,” Trump tweeted. “I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M.

Meanwhile, Trump finally caught a break on the worst crisis facing his presidency, the multiple investigations into his election campaign’s links to Russia. The past two weeks illustrate how, when on the ropes, Trump can still throw some punches that at least get him to the bell.

Mr Trump had been in Europe playing golf the week before his scheduled announcement, with plans to return in time to go over remarks written by his ragtag team of early staffers. “I get a call while he is in Europe and he asked, ‘What do you think about postponing this a little?'” recalled Sam Nunberg, an early campaign adviser.

But the press already had been invited, trips to early-voting states planned and the timing, a day after assumed front-runner Jeb Bush’s announcement, seemed ideal. And there was fear among advisers that any delay would trigger talk of cold feet about a campaign some observers doubted would ever happen because Mr Trump had already flirted with, but then bailed on, previous bids.

We have set this date. If we postpone it, it would be covered that you got cold feet and you would not be taken seriously,'” said Mr Nunberg. “I told him that postponing would be like Madonna not performing at MSG on a show day,” referring to New York’s Madison Square Garden. So the show went on.

WASHINGTON — For months, President Obama said that Donald J. Trump was unqualified, temperamentally unfit and a threat to the republic who should never be president. For years , Mr. Trump questioned Mr. Obama’s birthplace and legitimacy

Mr Trump and his wife, Melania, emerged from an upper level of Trump Tower and descended the “famous” escalator, with the future president offering thumbs-ups and waves. It was a scene Mr Trump had carefully crafted, paying frequent visits to the lobby as crews worked through the night to erect press risers, build the stage he would stand on and polish every inch of marble and brass. A speech had been written.

But Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s first campaign manager, wrote in his book, Let Trump Be Trump, that the candidate “gave a quick look at the sheet of paper Corey handed him, folded it up, and put it in his breast pocket, never to look at it again”. Four years later Mr Trump remembers it fondly. “I never forget standing on the famous escalator, you know the escalator, right?” he likes to tell crowds.

But I just took a deep breath and I said, ‘Let’s go do it. Let’s make this country great,’ because it takes guts. “It takes guts. And I’m so glad I did it.” And four years later, the speech Mr Trump delivered, following an introduction from his eldest daughter, Ivanka, sounds just like one he would deliver today.

“Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore,” Mr Trump told the crowd, railing against China for “killing us on trade” and promising to build a “great, great wall” along the US-Mexico border that the American ally would pay for, “Mark my words”.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Mr Trump said in one infamous line. He panned Obama-era unemployment statistics as “full of nonsense” and described himself as “really rich”.

Mr Trump, said Roger Stone, another longtime adviser, “orchestrated every minute detail of his announcement”, including vetoing a suggestion from his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen to decorate the lobby with red, white and blue bunting and feature a live elephant to add to the circus.

Mr Trump “decided to come down the escalator and worked from his own handwritten notes rather than a prepared text”, said Mr Stone, insisting that, “then, as now, Donald Trump does not have handlers or managers or chief strategists”. That included scrapping aides’ ideas on what he should wear. “He asked me about a black suit. I said, ‘Yes, that’s iconic, that’s The Apprentice,” recalled Mr Nunberg.

Blue is better. It works better with the flags’. He was right.” Mr Trump was thrilled with the speech’s reception and later remarked on how successful the day had been for his brand. “How great is this for Trump?” Mr Nunberg recalled the candidate saying at one point. It helped, of course, that some in the crowd had been paid to be there.

Extras were offered 50 US dollars to “wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer” in support of Mr Trump’s announcement, according to a casting call email obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. While some in Mr Trump’s orbit suggested a return to Trump Tower for his re-election announcement, the president will head to Orlando — in Florida, a state he must win to secure a second term.
