Former President Donald Trump mocked Meghan Markle’s rumored desire to run for President and indicated it might be enough to draw him into the 2024 race.
Trump, who was being interviewed by Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, responded to rumors that Markle has been meeting with Democrat operatives to discuss a possible bid for the presidency.
One source told the Daily Mail that “Democratic party networks are buzzing with talk about Meghan’s political ambitions and potential backers.”
Bartiromo asked Trump about his thoughts on the matter.
“Well, I hope that happens because if that happened, then I think I’d have an even stronger feeling toward running,” Trump countered.
Trump went on to criticize Meghan Markle over allegations she made regarding the British royal family and racism.
“I’m not a fan of hers. I think that what she talks about the royal family and the queen — I happen to think, I know the queen, as you know,” he said.
“I’ve met with the queen and I think the queen is a tremendous person,” added Trump. “And I’m not a fan of Meghan.”
Markle and her husband Prince Harry leveled astonishing allegations against the royal family during an interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this month.
Among the claims were accusations that the couple’s son was denied a royal title and that a member of the family held “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”
While Trump is skeptical, former First Lady Michelle Obama said she wasn’t shocked by the claims.
While Trump’s comments were most likely meant in jest, indicating beating someone so unimpressive and clearly troubled would be easy, could he give it another run in 2024?
At a party this past Christmas, Trump hinted that he would be back in the White House in 2024.
“We’re trying to get another four years,” he said as he mounted unsuccessful legal battles against the 2020 election results, “but otherwise I’ll see you in four years.”
In an interview with Newsmax’s Greg Kelly, Trump remarked on a potential 2024 run saying, “Well, we have tremendous support. I won’t say yet, but we have tremendous support.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would “absolutely” back Trump in 2024 should he win the Republican nomination.
