Mixed Reactions As Trump Says Prince Harry And Meghan Markle ‘Must Pay’ For Security
President Donald Trump revealed on Sunday that the United States would not pay to protect Prince Harry and his wife Meghan if they move to the US.
Trump made the announcement via his official Twitter handle:
“I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”
But, in an official statement, a Sussex spokesperson said on Sunday that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no plans to ask the US government for security resources. Privately funded security arrangements have been made.
However, this new development has sparked mixed reactions from fans and critics of the couple.
Read some of the reactions below:
Looks like PiersMorgan & the right wing British media overplayed their hand with trump as their ace. They never expected such quick, decisive response from Harry and Meghan, did they?🤣
Hope #HarryandMeghan continue this strategy – Give them no time to let their lies take root

Bro why the fuck is the president of the United States of America is tweeting about Harry and Meghan Markle when 100000+ of Americans are at risk with a deadly virus. And 100000 more don't know how the fuck they're going to pay their bills and survive this pandemic.

The US absolutely should not pay for Meghan and Harry’s security. You can’t be half royal and half capitalist. What happened to living in Canada? Plus we have bigger problems we need to focus on right now! #megxit2 #MeghanMarkle #HarryandMeghan https://t.co/7QdSNTJn8U

This is an email exchange from February. I was asked to appear on a BBC broadcast to discuss Meghan Markle’s “security”. Just hers. If there is not an agenda in the U.K. press that they are determined to bring to the United States, sell me a bridge in Brooklyn. pic.twitter.com/vgRQsEwFMQ

I called this over a year ago. I said Meghan Markle’s plan all along was to get pregnant and then convince Harry to move to Los Angeles so she can be what she’s always wanted to be— “A-list”. He will get her into every party she was never invited to.
He will lose his soul. https://t.co/wFzjnuV7Xj

The American taxpayers should not be footing the bill for this under any circumstances whatsoever, particularly in this time of crisis. Our tax dollars need to be helping our healthcare workers and American families in need!
