Donald Trump Would Consider Running For President In 2024 If Meghan Markle Ran Against Him

In what's perhaps the weirdest mash-up of prominent public figures we've seen in a while, former US President Donald Trump has revealed he might consider running for President in 2024...if Meghan Markle were to run against him.

Yeah...there's a lot to unpack there so we'll give you a minute.

When speaking to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, the former US leader said he'd probably be willing to give the presidency another shot if the Duchess of Sussex threw her hat in the ring.

He mentioned Meghan only because there were unfounded rumours she was meeting with senior Democratic figures about a potential presidential bid.

"Well I hope that happens, because if that happened then I'd be - I think I'd have an even stronger feeling toward running," Trump told Bartiromo.

The Apprentice star mentioned in September last year that he's 'not a fan of hers' - which we're sure she's absolutely devastated to know.

"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," he said.

"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."

Elsewhere in the recent Fox News interview, Trump said he'll 'see' whether he's keen to run for president again in future.

"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."

The decision to mention Meghan Markle could be a calculated way to get his name stirring in the headlines again.

Trump's former White House senior policy advisor, Stephen Miller, said on Steve Bannon's War Room podcast that the former President revealed he could 'make a little news' by issuing a public statement about Meghan and Harry's Oprah interview but decided not to.

That didn't seem to last long, however.

"I told him I was going to join you on this show. He says, if you want you can make a little news on Meghan. He goes, yeah, she's no good, and now everybody's seeing it," Miller said.
