"Well, I hope that happens because if that happened, I think I'd have an even stronger feeling toward running."

Why Trump wants Meghan Markle to run for president

"I would recommend it," Trump said during an interview on Fox News. "I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly," he said.

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.

Meghan explaining she had suicidal thoughts was more than revealing

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."

Trump hints at running for president in 2024—and it's not entirely surprising

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.

I'm pleading for pop culture to stop playing OCD for laughs

Perhaps the time has come to re-evaluate how we portray OCD in films and TV series.

Melvin Udall in As Good as it Gets

I've had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since I was a child and I'm now in my early 40s. For all of this time, I have felt like I should be apologizing for it.

It's like this invisible phantom that engulfs one in fear and doubt and brings dark clouds to a shiny day at the park. The sense of guilt has always followed me due to the disorder being a part of my everyday life. For whenever I would try to talk about it to a friend or a relative, to explain a certain lifestyle choice, to touch upon its debilitating nature, I've often been looked at funny in return.
