Piers Morgan brought out a surprise for President Donald Trump during their “Good Morning Britain” interview Wednesday: a hat in the style frequently worn by Britain’s former Prime Minister Winston Churchill.


Morgan, who got to know Trump while he was a contestant on “The Celebrity Apprentice” in 2008, hosted a wide-ranging interview with the commander in chief while he was in the U.K. preparing to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

He offered Trump a black bowler hat much like the ones Churchill was often pictured wearing (he also favored a similar style called a Homburg).

The president surveyed the hat as Morgan continued to ask him questions. “Who’s the British Trump?” he wondered, suggesting both Boris Johnson and Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage.

Trump’s answer was to simply shrug and smile. “I don’t want to ruin anybody’s career,” he quipped.

Trump then tried on the hat. “I think Churchill looked … I think Winston looked much better,” he noted, getting a laugh from Morgan. (RELATED: ‘He Is Really Into Climate Change’: Trump Tells Piers Morgan About His Conversation With Prince Charles)

Morgan’s full interview with Trump will be rebroadcast in primetime Friday.
