President Donald Trump has thrown some serious shade at the Duchess of Sussex during a press briefing at the White House this week.
Trump revealed he is not a fan of Meghan Markle when asked what he thought about a video she and Prince Harry shared to encourage Americans to vote.
The US president then further shaded her by wishing Harry "luck" in his marriage to the former Suits actress.
According to Sky News, Trump said:
"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."
Meghan and Harry did not explicitly endorse Joe Biden while appearing on Wednesday’s “Time 100" special, but the Los Angeles Times reported the Duke and Duchess of Sussex called it “the most important election of our lifetime.
In the video, Meghan is heard saying:
“Every four years, we are told the same thing, that 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.”
Although they did not encourage Americans to vote for the vice president, Meghan had in the past shared her thoughts on Trump - whom she described “misogynistic” and “divisive," according to the Washington Post.
Social media users have reacted to Trump's comments on Meghan and Prince Harry, and they were left divided.
Some agreed with the US President while others found it funny how he threw shade at only Meghan despite both Harry and his wife speaking in the clip.
Twitter user, @loujca, commented:
"They both spoke out about hate, Trump's reply was to hate on the black woman in the pair. I wonder why."
Another tweep, @trinityroad82, added:
"I forgot that he likes his women compliant and silent. He’s used to living in the Upper Eastside where’s it’s law that trophy wives behave in that way. He chose Melania well."
