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”.
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.
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”.
