President Donald Trump slammed Meghan Markle from the White House podium today, after she and Prince Harry recorded a video urging Americans to vote–implying strongly that people should turn out for Democrat Joe Biden.
The president said, “I’m not a fan of hers. I would say this – and she has probably has heard that – I wish a lot of luck to Harry because he’s going to need it.”
Reporter: “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chimed in on the U.S. election and essentially encouraging people to vote for Joe Biden. I wanted to get your reaction to that.”

Harry and Meghan left the British royal family and now live in Los Angeles. The couple has become increasingly involved in politics as election day approaches.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
Harry said in the video, “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.” Meghan added, “We’re six weeks out from the election, and today is Voter Registration Day. Every four years, we’re told the same thing, ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime.’ But this one is. When we vote, our values are put into action, and our voices are heard.”

The president’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said earlier on Twitter, “They made Britain great again by leaving, I hope they do the same for us.”
Meghan has been a vocal opponent of Trump, calling him a “misogynist” among other things. In August she told Marie Claire magazine, “I know what it’s like to have a voice, and also what it’s like to feel voiceless I also know that so many men and women have put their lives on the line for us to be heard. And that opportunity, that fundamental right, is in our ability to exercise our right to vote and to make all of our voices heard.”
