Donald Trump believes Meghan Markle is “not good” – but has kept quiet for fear of being “cancelled” like Piers Morgan, an aide says.
The claim was made by former senior adviser Jason Miller in a podcast interview.
News that the disgraced ex-President is not a fan will no doubt be welcomed by Meghan, after she and Harry urged voters to reject hatred without explicitly mentioning him before last year’s US election.
In response last September, foul tempered Trump said: “I’m not a fan of hers.”

Miller said this week that his disliking of the Duchess of Sussex has not dimmed now Trump has left office.
He told far-right former Trump insider Steve Bannon: “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 realise if you say anything negative about Meghan Markle you get canceled. Look at Piers.'”
Morgan, 55, stormed out of his Good Morning Britain job this week following a row of Meghan.
He insisted he didn’t believe anything she had said, including that she felt suicidal while she was still a working member of the Royal Family.
Last week the Duchess of Sussex, along with 41,000 other people, complained to Ofcom about his comments on GMB.
Morgan quit after an on-air bust-up with weatherman Alex Beresford.
Trump has been unable to vent as publicly as he has in the past after his beloved Twitter account was deleted by the social network.
He came under fire in the final days of his presidency for inciting a riot which saw fanatics storm the US Capitol in a failed attempt to overturn the election.
