Trump says he HOPES Meghan Markle will run for president in 2024 as he's 'not a fan' & backs Queen after Oprah interview

DONALD Trump says he HOPES Meghan Markle will run for president in 2024.

The former US President repeated, however, that he still isn't a fan of the Duchess of Sussex after she slammed the Royal Family during a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.


Meghan is rumoured to have high-powered plans to launch a political career – aiming to take over the White House.

Quizzed about her reported chats with Democrat power-brokers, Trump told Fox News: "Well I hope that happens because if that happened I think I'd have an even stronger feeling toward running."

But he added: "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."

He also hinted at a return to the presidential race.

Trump said: "Based on every poll, they want me to run again.

"But we're going to take a look and we'll see."

A senior member of the Labour party in the UK has told a newspaper that Meghan, 39, wants to climb the ranks in US politics with a view of standing as a Democrat in 2024 when current president Joe Biden will be 82.

The Mail on Sunday reported she was preparing a bid to become America's first female president following the failed bid of Hilary Clinton several years ago.

The Labour member, who the Mail said was from Tony Blair's administration and with strong links to Washington DC, claimed Meghan was currently networking among senior Democrats.

They said she had a view of fundraising for president, adding: "The Blairite, internationalist and Democratic party networks are buzzing with talk about Meghan's political ambitions and potential backers."

If Meghan did succeed she would be America's first ever female president and only the second ever non-white president after Barack Obama.
