Meghan Markle likely to run for US president says biographer

Published By Tribute on Apr 01, 2021

Meghan Markle Photo 2014 USA NetworkMeghan Markle's new biographer, Tom Bower, thinks she has a "good chance" of becoming U.S. president.

Previously, Markle's friend, journalist Omid Scobie, told True Royalty’s documentary Meghan for President? that: "She has her eyes set on the U.S. presidency. Meghan is the embodiment of the American dream. One day we may see Meghan become president."

According to The U.S. Sun, Tom Bower has reportedly signed a six-figure to write about Meghan. Bower has also previously written about Simon Cowell, Sir Philip Green and Formula One mogul Bernie Ecclestone, and is reportedly planning to spend a year talking with Markle's friends, family, and foes while writing her biography, leaving no stone unturned.

Bower told Closer magazine, "The prospect of Meghan running for president is possible and I’d even say likely," he said, "I really believe it’s where she sees herself going.

"I think she has a good chance of getting into the White House," Bower added, also making a fun remark saying that the role could reunite Markle with royal family after their falling out, saying she would "perhaps visit the UK to have tea with the Queen one day as President of the United States!”

Despite the praise, Bower recognizes that Markle's "clear sensitivity" would pose as a "major" hurdle if she were to run for presidency and enter the world of politics, saying that politicians are "probably the public figures who face the most backlash."

With Markle opening up about her mental struggles during her time with the royal family, Bower also added, "I really think she would struggle. She’d need to learn to take the heat."

Bower also pointed out that Markle's leadership skills could pose as an issue in her ability to "build up a team of loyal staff." Markle has been accused of bringing her staff to tears, and even bullying two senior members so much that they left their jobs. Markle denied the accusations, calling them a "calculated smear campaign."

"We’ve seen through the reports about her staff members quitting and moving on that she doesn’t seem to be able to hold onto her team," he added.

If Markle were to become president, she would be the first woman U.S. history to hold that position, and she would be the second non-white president after Barack Obama. ~Sean Olegario

    First Trump and now Meghan as US President. Why are US citizens trying so hard to destroy themselves and their country. But she does have what most politicians have. The ability to lie and bad mouth others. Recently it was towards her new royal family with the Oprah interview, where she made herself sound as a victim by the monarchy and trashing the royal family. All in order to get sympathy and media attention.

    What's interesting to me is that none of this came from Meghan Markle, but the comments above are trashing her. How about Tom Bower and Omid Scobie...these men who are just speculating about her. These men who are earning money and attention for just saying stuff to the media about another person. Maybe they're the ones we should be disgusted with, spreading rumors.

    Megan for president. I know she can't do worse than Trump. You never know she could do a good job for the country and with her husband behind her I'm sure they'll do good for the poor and middle class especially.

    Hmm year you need to be insensitive to be President so she needs to talk to Mussolini Or Genghis Khan (I heard he is hiring) or Pee Wee Herman all great and female insensitive leaders of the current era. i think she should run for PM of Canada and President of Mexico at the same time since Section 1.4 subsection 2021 of of the Nuff AmexiCandian Fee Trade Accord Cleary states that "should the a candidate who has the initials MM and be female and represent two or more of the main dethnic groups of the three North American countries in their bloodline then they shall be liable to be the leader of all three treaty signing con trees"
