Donald Trump has claimed he could face cancel culture “like Piers” if he were to publicly comment on the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry interview, but added he thought the Duchess of Sussex was “no good”.

The revelation came when Mr Trump’s senior adviser Jason Miller appeared on the War Room podcast, hosted by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Mr Miller said that the former president told him he could “make a little news” by telling the public his thoughts about the Oprah interview with Meghan and Prince Harry that included several bombshell revelations about life as royals.

“When I was talking to the president this morning … he’s like, ‘Yeah, she’s no good. I said that and now everybody’s seeing it. But you realize if you say anything negative about Meghan Markle you get cancelled. Look at Piers,'” Mr. Miller said when recounting the conversation with Mr. Trump.

The former president was referring to Piers Morgan, the polarising host of Good Morning Britain who left his post after he said during a segment that he didn’t believe a word Meghan said in the Oprah interview, including her struggle with suicidal thoughts.

President Donald Trump spoke out after Prince Harry made remarks alongside his wife about the looming US election, that some construed as expressing coded support for the Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.

The latest statement from Mr Trump comes after he previously called Meghan “nasty” when asked about comments made by the Duchess of Sussex that referred to him as “misogynistic” and “divisive”.

“No, I didn’t know that she was nasty,” Mr Trump said in 2019, according to The Sun.

Mr. Trump later attempted to roll back the quote by claiming it was made up by the “fake news media”.
