The list of people Trump has publicly slammed over the course of his lifetime, and even more so from the comfort and power of the White House is a long and ever-growing one. And as he stood at the podium this evening, being broadcast to the American people and the world, he made it a little longer.
Recently, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who now reside in Los Angeles after officially relinquishing their royal titles, released a video just weeks before the upcoming election, urging Americans to cast their votes in November, with a less than subtle hint at their support for Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Harry, in a line some had assumed as a light endorsement of Biden and a simultaneous dig at Donald Trump said, “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”
“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,” Markle added in the video.
And, lo and behold, Donald Trump was none too happy about it — as is customary when any living soul dares to question or criticize him.
“‘I’m not a fan of hers,” Trump declared from the White House podium after a reporter with the Daily Mail questioned him regarding the statement made by the formerly royal couple. “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.”

This is far from the first time Trump has taken issue with Markle specifically, even going so far as to call her “nasty” in the past.
But while Donald may have been used to people not paying him much mind back when he was a washed-up reality TV personality, I suggest he gear up and gear up quickly now that he’s vying for another term to further ruin this country and everything it stands for. Because we’re all coming for him. And we’re not holding back.
