A senior advisor to Donald Trump said that the former president claimed Meghan Markle was “no good”.

These revelations come from Jason Miller, an ex-Trump aide who was speaking on Steve Bannon’s podcast War Room last week, according to reporting from Deadline.

“She’s no good... I saw it and now everybody is seeing it,” Trump is claimed to have said, according to Miller. “Piers Morgan is the best, he’s the greatest, and they went on to try and cancel him simply because he criticised Meghan Markle.”

According to Miller, Trump passed on this opinion to “make a little news” but told him: “You realise if you say anything negative about Meghan Markle, you get cancelled, look at Piers.”

Morgan, who took it upon himself to resign, left Good Morning Britain last week following on from 41,000 Ofcom complaints about his behaviour on air last week.

This included denying the suicidal thoughts and racism Meghan faced, sexually harassing his colleague and bringing Meghan Markle’s estranged father on for an interview. He also stormed off the set, live on air.

Meghan Markle reportedly said that Trump was “divisive” and “misogynistic” so Trump told The Sun newspaper that he “didn’t know that she was nasty”

Later, he backtracked about these comments, saying the words she used were, and not Meghan Markle herself.

He did not warm to the Duchess after she and her husband Prince Harry released the following statement, “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.” This was seen as a slight against the then president.

He said the following about, “I’m not a fan of hers, and I would say this, and she probably has heard that. I wish a lot of luck to Harry because he’s going to need it,” to reporters.
