Trump Rips Meghan Markle, Hopes She Runs for President

(Fox News/"Primetime")

By    |   Tuesday, 16 March 2021 08:59 PM

There is no love lost for mercurial Meghan Markle on the behalf of former President Donald Trump, but he does hope the Duchess of Sussex carries through on a reported consideration of running for president.

"I hope that happens because if that happened, I think I would have an even stronger feeling toward running," Trump told Fox News' "Primetime" with Maria Bartiromo at the end of his roughly 25-minute interview by telephone Tuesday night.

After a ballyhooed interview with husband Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey, reports have surfaced the former actress, 39, was meeting with Democrat political strategist to talk about a darkhorse presidential run in 2024.

The U.K.'s Daily Mail reported Markle, according to a source, wanted to maintain her American citizenship with an eye toward a political campaign.

Markle would have to renounce her title among British royalty in order hold public office in the United States under the oath of allegiance, U.S. constitutional experts told the Daily Mail.

"I'm not a fan of hers," Trump told Bartiromo. "I think that what she talks about the Royal family and the Queen, and I happen to think – I know the Queen as you know, I met with the Queen – and I think the Queen is a tremendous person, and I am not a fan of Meghan."

Trump declined to pinpoint a Republican that could win in 2024 outside of himself, but did say his own 2024 presidential campaign decision hinges on Republicans first winning back majorities in the House and Senate in the 2022 midterm elections.

It it not unprecedented for an actor to rise to the highest office in America. Trump himself was a reality television star from NBC's "The Apprentice." Also, former President Ronald Reagan was a Hollywood actor for 4 decades before switching to politics, becoming the governor of California, and ultimately winning the White House in the 1980 presidential election succeeding former President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat who struggled on the economy.

Reagan, using the original Make American Great Again slogan Trump used in his campaigns, served two terms from 1981-January 1989.
