Donald Trump has once again made his feelings towards Meghan Markle clear by telling reporters he’s “not a fan” of the Duchess of Sussex.
The US president’s comments came after Markle and Prince Harry called on Americans to register to vote in the upcoming presidential election on November 3 during a joint TV appearance on Tuesday.
In their first joint TV appearance since leaving the UK royal family, Markle said that it was “the most important election of our lifetime.”
Harry added: “When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realize it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else’s shoes.”
“Because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially. It’s time to not only reflect, but act.”
Although neither Harry nor Meghan mentioned anyone by name in the message, their comments were interpreted by many as an endorsement of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
Speaking at a White House press briefing, the president was asked his thoughts on Harry and Meghan “essentially encouraging people to vote for Joe Biden.”
Trump shook his head and said: “I’m not a fan of hers.
“And I would say this — and she probably has heard that — but I wish a lot of luck to Harry, because he’s going to need it.”
Trump’s rift with the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex is no secret.
During a TV interview in 2016, Markle called Trump “divisive” and “misogynistic,” as Insider’s Mikhaila Friel reported.
In June 2019, the president called Markle “nasty.”
And after Harry and Meghan announced they would be stepping down as members of the royal family, Trump called the news “sad.”
He said in January 2020: “I just have such respect for the Queen. I don’t think this should be happening to her.”
