Donald Trump is the clear front-runner for the Republican Presidential nomination.
There’s a lot of buzz and speculation about when or if he plans to debate his Republican rivals.
And Donald Trump just said five words about Meghan Markle that caught everyone by surprise.
Polls show Donald Trump with a commanding lead in the Republican Presidential Primary.
His massive lead coupled with his distaste for Fox News led him to decide to skip the first Republican debate in lieu of an interview with Tucker Carlson on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.
While Trump has so far avoided the traditional debate format, he has not shied away from doing interviews.
The subject of the British Royal Family came up during a recent interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt.
Trump has had a bit of a complicated back and forth with Meghan Markle in recent years.
Trump: I’d love to debate Markle
When Hewitt asked Trump about debating Meghan Markle, he said “I’d love to debate her. I would love it.”
Donald Trump tells Hugh Hewitt he would “love to debate” Meghan Markle:

To further demonstrate his enthusiasm for such an event, Trump told Hewitt “if you want to set it up, let’s set it up. Let’s go do something.”
During Trump’s first Presidential race in 2016, Markle called him “divisive” and “misogynistic.”
The former President described the comments as “nasty.”
In discussing Prince Harry and Meghan’s feud with other members of the Royal Family, Trump said “I disagree so much with what they’re doing,” before adding that they showed “great disrespect” toward the Queen.
“I said that I don’t think they are very appropriate, what they’re saying, what they’re doing, and I didn’t like the way she dealt with the Queen,” Trump said.
The famous couple publicly made a show of stepping back from the Royal Family to instead focus on making money and pushing the Left’s woke ideology in California.
When they first moved to Hollywood, they spoke with Oprah Winfrey in a tone-deaf interview and complained about how difficult it is being a part of the Royal Family.
Meghan Markle even made accusations of racism against her for being biracial.
Americans do not hold Prince Harry and Meghan in particularly high esteem.
In polling conducted for Newsweek in April, “Prince Harry was liked by 46 percent of Americans in the first quarter of 2023, down from 52 percent in the last quarter of 2022, while 26 percent of Americans said they disliked him, giving him a net approval rating of 20.”
But Meghan Markle’s numbers are even lower than her husband’s.
“Meghan Markle received support from 36 percent of Americans, down two points compared to the previous quarter, and 24 percent said they disliked the Duchess, enabling her to retain a positive net approval rating of 12 percent,” Newsweek reported.
In the Real Clear Politics national polling average, Trump is currently polling at 53%, nearly 40% higher than his nearest GOP rival.
That disparity may once again play a role in Trump’s decision to engage in future Presidential debates.
