Former U.S. President Donald Trump said that he is “not a fan” of Meghan Markle, but he could fight her in the election.
On Fox News, Trump was asked how he felt about the statements made by the Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry, and what he thought about rumors that Markle was going to run for president of the United States.
“I hope it happens. Because if it does, I’ll have an even greater desire to run (for president again). I’m not a fan of hers,” Trump said.
“I think the queen is a wonderful person, I’m not a fan of Meghan,” he added.
In an interview with the famous American TV host Oprah Winfrey, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex retired from royal duties made several sensational statements that hurt the royal family and the image of the British monarchy. In particular, Markle said that one of her husband’s relatives (Winfrey later clarified that it was neither Elizabeth II nor Prince Philip) had expressed concerns about the color of her unborn child and that she herself had suicidal thoughts and was denied help. She also revealed that she had been abused by her older brother Harry’s wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate.
The British royal family said two days after the interview was broadcast in the United States that it took Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s words about racism seriously, noting that “some memories may differ.” Buckingham Palace promised to solve all the problems raised, and especially the racial one, privately.
