'He's going to need it': Trump wishes Prince Harry luck on his marriage to Markle after royals take election swipe
President Trump weighed in on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s comments on the 2020 election. © Provided by Washington Examiner “I’m not a fan of hers. And I would say this — and she probably has heard that — but I wish a lot of luck to Harry because he’s going to need it,” the president told reporters at a Wednesday briefing. The duke and duchess took a veiled swipe at Trump in a video to mark the release of Time 100, an annual list of the most influential people in the world, in which Markle said the 2020 election was “the most important election of our lifetime.
He told Trump: "She said she'd move to Canada if you got elected, it turned out she moved to Britain."
The president replied: "I did not know that, no. I didn't know that she was nasty."
However, asked if it was nice to have an American princess, he added: "It is nice, and I am sure she will do excellently. She will be very good. I hope she does."
The exchange came after comments Meghan made during a 2016 appearance on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore while she was an actress on Suits.
The duchess said: "Yes of course Trump is divisive, think about just female voters alone, right? I think it was in 2012 the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points.
"That's a huge number and, with as misogynistic as Trump is, and so vocal about it, that's a huge chunk of it.

"I wish a lot of luck to Harry, because he's going to need it," Mr. Trump said.During a White House briefing, a reporter asked Mr. Trump about the couple, who have encouraged Americans to register to vote. "Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chimed in on the U.S. election and essentially encouraged people to vote for Joe Biden. I wanted to get your reaction to that," the reporter asked.
"You're not just voting for a woman, if it's Hillary, just because it's a woman but certainly because it has made it easy to see you don't really want that kind of world."
By the time Trump made his next intervention, Meghan and Harry had left the royal family for a new life in North America.
Initially they suggested they would live in Canada, but when the country's government would not fund their security, they moved to Los Angeles just before the coronavirus lockdown came in.
In March, Trump wrote on Twitter: "I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom.

A spokesperson for the Sussexes said at the time: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no plans to ask the US government for security resources. Privately funded security arrangements have been made."
Trump's most recent comments are his strongest yet and follow a summer of public statements about the upcoming presidential election.
Meghan Markle first urged Americans to vote through a video in she which backed Black Lives Matter in June.
Then for the 19th News in mid-August she again spoke of the importance of voting without triggering a backlash in Britain.

Appearing immediately before former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, she said: "We all know what's at stake this year."
