The former US President said Prince Harry's attacks on the Royal Family are 'unforgivable'

Donald Trump's latest outburst about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is representative of the "public disgust" towards the couple, Lee Cohen has claimed.

This follows comments made by the former US president who claimed Prince Harry showed "unforgivable disloyalty" towards the Royal Family, in particular the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Trump added that Prince Harry will be "on his own" if he is re-elected as President, as controversy over his US immigration records and details of his past drug use continues.

Conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation argues that the Duke cannot legally have entered the US because he admitted to taking illegal drugs in his record-breaking memoir, Spare.

In a recent interview with ABC's Good Morning America, Prince Harry was questioned on whether he would become a US citizen, after moving to California with his wife Meghan Markle in 2020.

The Duke admitted the thought "had crossed his mind", but was "not something that's a high priority" right now.

Discussing the comments made by the former US President, American journalist Lee Cohen said Trump "doesn't always say things the way most people would", but has a talent for "saying what most people think".

Cohen agreed with Trump and said his comments about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were "bang on".

Cohen told GBN America: "People on both sides of the Atlantic are overwhelmingly, completely fed up with Harry and Meghan's betrayals, disloyal hypocrisy and self-promotion."


Cohen continued: "Trump captures the public's disgust with the poisonous couple's boasting, like the lofty claims of their new rebranding that depicts Meghan as one of the world's most influential women.

"But the thing that really drives us over the edge, and President Trump captured this too, is the eternal sense of hubris and entitlement for this poisonous pair."

Host Nana Akua agreed with Cohen's points, and admitted she was "glad" that the American supporters of the royal couple are now "seeing what Britain saw" of the Sussexes.

Nana said: "They might argue that they're trying to get on with their lives, but they just cannot stop involving the Royal Family."

Discussing Harry and Meghan's political impact on their American supporters, Cohen highlighted that there are "diplomatic issues at stake" if Trump is against them, ahead of the upcoming US Presidential election.

Cohen explained: "While Joe Biden is the most anti-British president in recent memory, Trump is the UK's greatest unsung champion.

"And Trump's statement about the Harry case underlines his respect for the institutions, especially the Royal Family that Britons cherish."
