Meghan 2024? Duchess has 'eyes set on the US presidency' despite Trump's sexist remarks, claims royal expert
'Meghan is the embodiment of the American dream. One day we may see Meghan become president,' Omid Scobie said
A royal expert said that Meghan Markle had "her eyes on the US presidency" even as President Donald Trump made it clear during a press conference on Wednesday, September 23, that he was not a fan of the duchess and wished a "lot of luck to Harry because he's going to need it."
Speaking to True Royalty TV, the author of 'Finding Freedom' Omid Scobie said: "She has her eyes set on the US presidency. Meghan is the embodiment of the American dream. One day we may see Meghan become president."
This came after Harry faced backlash after telling people to vote against Trump. while speaking in a Time 100 video message, Harry, who isn't a US citizen, shared that he was not eligible to vote during the November 3 election and added that he had never voted in the UK either where the royals are expected to remain politically neutral. According to Time, Harry said, "As we approach this November, it's vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity. When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realize it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourselves in someone else's shoes. Because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially. It's time to not only reflect but act."
Meghan also added, "Every four years we are told the same thing that this is the most important election of our lifetime. But this one is. When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter because you do and you deserve to be heard." Even though they did not endorse a candidate, It was pretty clear from the former roya couple's statement that they were not in support of Trump.
Buckingham Palace has appeared to distance itself from comments made by the Duke of Sussex as the British monarchy famously chooses to unpolitical, be it their own nation's politics or world affairs. "We would not comment. The Duke is not a working member of the Royal Family and any comments he makes are made in a personal capacity," The palace spokesman said in a statement.
During a press conference at the White House, Trump was asked about a video in which Harry and Meghan are seen encouraging Americans to vote. The reporter insinuated that the couple was "essentially encouraging people to vote for Joe Biden" and asked what Trump’s reaction was. Trump answered the question by saying, "I'm not a fan of hers" and wished a "lot of luck to Harry because he's going to need it."
Trump’s comments about Meghan irked Twitter users who branded him 'sexist'. One user said, "Who’s gonna tell the president that Meghan doesn’t need him to 'be a fan' of hers?" Another user claimed, "I love how much Meghan makes you misogynistic men mad. they can't handle a Black woman being in that amount of power can they?” One user questioned, "MEGHAN MARKLE DESERVES BETTER 1) Harry doesn’t need 'luck' he knew the strong and powerful woman he married 2) literally the cops who murdered Breonna Taylor are walking free and this is what the press corps ask him?"
