Donald Trump has said he might be more inclined to run for U.S. President in 2024 if Meghan Markle decides to run as a candidate for the Democrats.
Speaking to Fox News on Tuesday, former U.S. President Donald Trump was asked what he thought about the Duchess of Sussex meeting with the Democrats and speculation that she might run for President.
In response, Trump replied to say that he hopes it happens because he would have “an even stronger feeling” towards running in the next election.
Trump — who moved to Florida in January after losing the election and leaving Washington D.C. — appeared via a phone call on Fox News and told listeners he was “not a fan of Meghan Markle.”

In contrast, he had high praise for Queen Elizabeth II, saying he had met the monarch and she was a “tremendous person.”
The Republican politician stated: “I’m not a fan of hers. 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.”
Although he did not disclose further details about his possible plans to run for office in 2024, Donald Trump said “every poll” suggested the American public want him to run again.
He left the question open by saying he would be “taking a look” and finished his interview by saying “we’ll see.”
“Based on every poll, they want me to run again,” he said. “But we’re going to take a look, and we’ll see.”
Donald Trump and his wife, former First Lady Melania Trump, departed the White House in January, before the inauguration of President Joe Biden, and following the deadly riot which took place on Capitol Hill on January 6.
Following the Sussexes’ bombshell interview, which aired more than a week ago, Jason Miller — former advisor to Donald Trump — said that Trump did not want to react publicly to the interview as he thought he would be ‘” canceled like Piers Morgan.”
T.V. host Piers Morgan left Good Morning Britain after more than 41,000 complaints about his response to the Sussexes’ interview, after saying he “didn’t believe a word” Meghan Markle said about her suicidal feelings and experiences of racism.
While Trump could win the Republican primary, Americans, in general, might not be ready to give him another chance.
