Rumors are swirling that Meghan Markle is considering running for president after a source spoke out to say that it’s something that she is already thinking about doing.
“One of the reasons she was so keen not to give up her American citizenship was so she had the option to go into politics,” a source close to Meghan and her husband Prince Harry told Vanity Fair. “I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles she would seriously consider running for president.”
Those who work closely with Meghan, however, have denied that she wants to run for office.
“While there’s no denying she is interested and engaged in politics as a topic, she harbors no ambition to enter a career in politics herself,” another source said.
This comes after Meghan and Harry took part in a video about the importance of voting.
“Every four years, we’re told the same thing, ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime.’ But this one is,” Meghan said. “When we vote, our values are put into action, and our voices are heard.”
“As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation, and online negativity,” Harry added.
In the wake of this, President Donald Trump spoke out to slam Meghan publicly.
“I’m not a fan of hers… and she probably has heard that,” Trump said of Meghan. “I wish a lot of luck to Harry ’cause he’s gonna need it.”
This is not the first time that Trump has publicly slammed Meghan. Entertainment Tonight reported that in 2019, he called her “nasty” after a 2016 video surfaced in which she described him as “divisive” and “misogynistic.”
“She was nasty to me, and that’s OK for her to be nasty,. It’s not good for me to be nasty to her and I wasn’t,” Trump said. “You know what? She’s doing a good job, I hope she enjoys her life… I think she’s very nice.”
In contrast, Trump described Harry at the time as a “terrific guy.”
“He spent a lot of time talking to [my daughter] Ivanka and talking to my family,” Trump said. “He couldn’t have been nicer… I think he’s great.”
