DONALD Trump has claimed he would be “cancelled like Piers Morgan” if he was to “say anything negative about Meghan Markle”.
The former President said thought the Duchess of Sussex was "no good" but feared speaking out following her tell-all interview.
Trump's senior adviser Jason Miller made the revelation while appearing on War Room podcast, hosted by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
When discussing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Opran Winfrey, Mr Miller relayed his bosses thoughts, saying: "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 realise if you say anything negative about Meghan Markle you get cancelled. Look at Piers.'"
The former President was referring to Piers Morgan, the now-former host of Good Morning Britain.
Mr Morgan sensationally quit last week, after he said he didn't believe a word Meghan Markle said in the interview – including that she had suffered suicidal thoughts and was racially abused by the royal family.
41,000 Ofcom complaints were received over his comments – including one subsitted by Meghan herself – nearly a record for a single broadcast.
But Mr Morgan said he was not willing to apologise, and walked away from his role — bringing an immediate end to his six-year stint on the morning show.
On Tuesday, Mr Morgan backed his opinion on social media, telling his millions of followers: "On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t."
In the wake of his departure, Mr Morgan's most recent book 'Wake Up: Why the world has gone nuts' has become the number one best-selling on Britain's Amazon.
Donald Trump has previously referred to Meghan Markle as "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”
