Former U.S. President Donald Trump says he would consider running for Presidency again in 2024 if Meghan Markle plans to do so, too. On Tuesday night, Trump was asked to comment on the recent speculations about Markle networking with Democrat operatives for launching a political career and possibly running for the White House. Expressing his dislike for the Duchess of Sussex, the former POTUS told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that he would have a "stronger feeling towards running" for President in the near future if the mother-of-one planned to become America’s first-ever female President, reports The Metro.



On Sunday, Daily Mail revealed the 39-year-old's ambitions of becoming the President of the free nation. She further expressed hopes that her recent "bombshell" interview with Oprah Winfrey along with Prince Harry would help strengthen her position in the U.S. and get her support. "Well I hope that happens because if that happened then I’d be – I think I’d have an even stronger feeling toward running," said Trump during the interview. He then went on to defend the Royal Family by showing his dislike for Markle, according to news.com.au. "I’m not a fan of hers, I think that what she talks about the royal family and the Queen – I happen to think, I know the Queen, as you know I’ve met with the Queen, and I think the Queen is a tremendous person and I am not a fan of Meghan," he said. 



Trump's recent comment echoes the response he gave reporters in September last year when asked about Markle's encouragement of people to cast their vote for President Joe Biden. At the time, he 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." Although he did show interest in running for the White House, Trump refused to actually commit to a 2024 run. "Based on every poll they want me to run again, but we’re going to take a look and we’ll see," he said.


"First steps first, we have to see what we can do with the House (in 2022). I think we have a very good chance of taking back the House, we did a great job (in 2020) … we ended up winning 15 seats instead of losing potentially 25 seats, and it almost cost Nancy Pelosi her job. I think we have a chance to do better in the Senate, we need leadership in the Senate, which frankly we don’t have. We have a chance of taking back the Senate, and frankly, we’ll make our decision after that," continued the 74-year-old. That being said, he warned that Republicans "will have a very hard time getting elected" again in case Democrats' sweeping voting reform bill becomes law.


"If it’s allowed to happen I think Republicans will have a very hard time getting elected," he said. "They will be able to do what they did in the 2020 election and potentially even worse. They have to stop that bill." But the most noteworthy moment during the interview was when Trump began discussing the coronavirus vaccine. He even encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated. "I would, I would recommend it," he said. "And I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me frankly, but again we have our freedoms and we have to live with that and I agree with that also, but it’s a safe vaccine and something that works." Per TMZ, Trump got the Pfizer vaccine shot in January before leaving office.
