"Well, I hope that happens because if that happened, I think I'd have an even stronger feeling toward running."
From golden statues to Conservative Political Action Conference speeches, former president Donald Trump seems to have hopes of running in the 2024 presidential election.
Now, Trump has expressed interest in running against Meghan Markle in the next election, speaking about the Duchess of Sussex's reported interest in possibly running for President of the United States.
Earlier this month, Meghan Markle's explosive CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey was all over the media. The interview, which includes Markle's claims that someone in the royal family expressed racist comments about what her son with Prince Harry would look like racially, as well as many other shocking and harrowing statements.
As a result, the broadcast made way for many memes and follow-up stories about racism allegations in the royal family.
On Tuesday, Fox News spoke to the former president about Markle meeting with Democrat operatives to consider entering politics.
"Well, I hope that happens because if that happened, I think I'd have an even stronger feeling toward running," said Trump.

He continued: "I'm not a fan of hers. I think that what she talks about the royal family and the queen — I happen to think, I know the queen, as you know. I've met with the queen, and I think the queen is a tremendous person. And I'm not a fan of Meghan."
Why Trump is not a fan of Markle doesn't really make sense. But if I had to guess, Trump never seems to favor people that aren't necessarily supporters of him, or go against people he seemingly has a lot of respect for.
Within the same call, Trump went ahead and encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
"We have our freedoms, and we have to live by that. And I agree with that also, said Trump about his supporters who are reluctant to receive the vaccine. "But it is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine, and it is something that works."

We're all entitled to keep matters of health private to the public. But if Trump mentioned he received his vaccination earlier, it might have encouraged some of his supporters to follow suit.
Both Trump and former First Lady Melania Trump received the vaccine quietly at the White House in January.
However, I digress.
Moreover, Trump has yet to officially announce his intention to run for 2024, although he continues to tease the idea with his guest appearances in the media.
