Why Trump wants Meghan Markle to run for president

"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.

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

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.

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases - solving this problem is bigger than supporting women, it’s about supporting the national economy.

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?
Mum of two, bar manager, and lover of wine. And tequila.

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
