Trump Eager To Go Against Meghan Markle In Potential Debate Showdown
In a surprising turn of events, former President Donald Trump has expressed his willingness to return to the debate stage, not against his Republican primary rivals, but to engage in a high-profile debate with woke activist Meghan Markle.

During a recent interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, Trump was posed with a rather intriguing question: would he be willing to debate Prince Harry’s wife for the sake of ratings? Without hesitation, the former president responded, “I’d love to debate her. I would love it.”
Trump, whose roots trace back to Scotland, has always held a deep admiration for the British Royal Family, particularly the late Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout his presidency, he had the honor of meeting the Queen on multiple occasions. However, when it comes to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Trump has had his reservations.
“I disagree so much with what they’re doing. I said that I don’t think they are very appropriate in what they’re saying and doing, and I didn’t like the way she dealt with the Queen,” he stated.
Trump’s ongoing feud with the couple has deep roots, with Meghan labeling Trump as “divisive” and “misogynistic” during the 2016 presidential race. In response, Trump famously referred to Meghan as “nasty.”
When asked about whether Meghan and Harry harbor negative feelings towards him, Trump responded diplomatically, saying, “Well, I don’t know if they don’t like me. I think it’s not a good situation between the two of them, but I wasn’t aware of whether they dislike me… It has been suggested that it’s possible. They wouldn’t be the only ones.”
While Meghan and Harry may not be Trump’s biggest fans, the former president maintains steadfast support within the Republican base. His popularity is so strong that he has opted out of participating in the primary debates, currently holding a commanding lead over his challengers.
Just last month, while other candidates gathered in Milwaukee for a Fox News debate, Mr. Trump chose an alternative route, conducting an interview with former Fox host Tucker Carlson instead.
