Mr Trump made his remarks about the duchess in a Sun newspaper interview ahead of his state visit to the UK.
The US former actress has been a vocal critic of Mr Trump.
She supported his Democratic challenger, Hillary Clinton, in the 2016 election and has referred to him as “divisive” and a “misogynist”.
Told of her comments during his interview with the Sun, President Trump said it was the first time he had heard them.
“I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty,” he said.
