What Donald Trump allegedly said privately about Meghan Markle after her Oprah interview

Donald Trump hasn't spoken publicly about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah because he doesn't want to be 'canceled' like Piers Morgan, his former aide claims. 

Trump's former senior adviser Jason Miller lifted the lid on his feelings about the Sussexes' interview during an appearance on Steve Bannon's podcast.

Miller said Trump told him he could 'make a little news' by sharing his reaction to the interview - but he ultimately decided it wasn't a good idea.  

'When I was talking to the president this morning ... he's like: "Yeah, [Meghan's] no good. I said that and now everybody's seeing it. 

'"But you realize if you say anything negative about Meghan Markle you get canceled. Look at Piers [Morgan],"' Miller recalled. 

Morgan left his anchor post at Good Morning Britain last week amid criticism over his controversial comments about the interview. 

The polarizing host said he 'didn't believe a word' of what Meghan said about experiencing racism within the Royal Family and feeling suicidal when she was pregnant with son Archie.  

Trump has spoken out against Meghan in the past, including when he famously called her 'nasty' in 2019.  

Miller, who worked as Trump's chief spokesman during his 2016 campaign and as his senior adviser in the 2020 campaign, said Trump told him: 'I'm on Team Piers. Piers is the best, he's the greatest, and they went and tried to cancel him simply because he criticized Meghan Markle. This is just the latest chapter of woke culture.'
