‘Betrayed the Queen’: Donald Trump criticises Prince Harry

NEW DELHI: A day after Prince Harry said that he “considered” becoming an American citizen, former US President Donald Trump said that the prince would be “on his own” if he becomes the President again, Independent reported.
Claiming that the 39-year-old had “betrayed the Queen”, Independent quoted Trump saying, “I wouldn’t protect him. He betrayed the Queen. That’s unforgivable.”
Further accusing the Biden administration of being “too gracious” to the Duke of Sussex, Trump added, “He would be on his own if it was down to me.”
The comments come a day after Harry told Good Morning America that he had “considered” becoming an American citizen, but had “no idea” what was holding him back.
Meanwhile, the remarks come as a new controversy surrounds Harry’s immigration status, with a US conservative think tank arguing that the prince could not have legally entered the US because he admitted to using illegal drugs in his memoir.
In his memoir, Spare, Harry admitted to taking cocaine, marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms adding that cocaine “didn’t do anything for me” and “Marijuana is different, that actually really did help me.”
The Heritage Foundation has criticized the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stating that the US law “generally renders such a person inadmissible for entry” to the country.
It asked DHS to release the documents in light of admissions made by Harry, the Telegraph reported.
Arguing against it, DHS lawyer John Bardo said that releasing the documents would be “an unwarranted invasion of Prince Harry’s privacy.”
“The records are particularly sensitive because releasing them, even in part, would reveal Prince Harry’s status in the United States, which Prince Harry has not disclosed,” Bardo said.
