US Election 2020 has become a heated topic and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become a part of the debate.
Social media users are asking the Duke and the Duchess to leave the US if Donald Trump wins the election.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had moved to the US after stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family. Since then, they began commenting on American politics.
What did Meghan Markle say in 2016?
When the Duchess of Sussex lived in America before marrying Prince Harry, she said she would leave the US if Mr. Trump became president during the 2016 election.
During her TV interview in 2016, the Duchess labeled Mr. Trump as “misogynistic”.
She said it was “crazy” that Mr. Trump’s controversial comments do not have an effect on his supporters.
She added, “Yes of course Trump is divisive, think about female voters alone, right?
“I think it was in 2012 the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points, that is a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is, and so vocal about it, that is a huge chunk of it.”
Back during an interview on the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore in May 2016, Meghan had said that she would stay in Canada where she starred in the TV show Suits.
She said, “It’s really the moment I go, we film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada.
“If that is really the reality we are talking about then that is a game-changer in terms of how we move in the world here.”
What are Twitter users saying?
Twitter users have asked the Duchess to consider her words and leave if Trump wins this year.
One user posted a picture of other celebrities with the caption: “Meghan Markle and Prince Harry when you pack and leave after a Trump Landslide… Take these other YAHOOS with you. Thanks.”
Another user tweeted: “What happened all the actors and entertainers who were going to leave the US if Trump won in 2016?
“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not going to move to the US while Trump was President.
“When Trump wins 2020 how many who say they will leave will actually leave?”
A third user wrote, “Why [can’t] some people, such as pretentious Meghan Markle, who promised to leave US if Trump became POTUS, keep their promise? They need to learn something from Trump: Promise made, promise kept.”
In September this year, Prince Harry had said to the US Citizen to “reject hate speech” during the 2020 US election.
During a broadcast as part of the Time 100, Prince Harry said: “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”
The Duchess of Sussex added: “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.”
