Mr Trump explained that he did not like the way the Duchess of Sussex had spoken of the Royal Family. During a 30-minute call to Fox News on Tuesday, the former President said the Queen was a “tremendous person”. A Fox News host asked Mr Trump about the possibility of Meghan running for office in 2024.
He replied: “I hope that happens because if that happened, I think I would have an even stronger feeling toward running. I am not a fan of Meghan.”
Speaking about his own possible presidential bid, Mr Trump did not confirm whether he will be running.
He said: “Based on every poll, they want me to run again. But we’re going to take a look and we’ll see.”
Meghan and Prince Harry’s highly anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey aired in the UK last week on ITV.
The couple discussed their experience as senior royals before stepping back from their roles.
After stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family last year, the Sussexes moved to the US with their baby son Archie.
The couple have not returned to the UK since March.
When Meghan lived in America before marrying Prince Harry, she said she would leave the US if Mr Trump became president during the 2016 election.
In an interview on the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore in May 2016, the Duchess said she would stay in Canada where she starred in the TV show Suits.
She said: “It’s really the moment I go, we film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada.
