DONALD Trump has blasted Meghan Markle as "no good" but said he didn't want to end up "like Piers" by speaking out publicly.

The former US President reportedly made the light-hearted comments to senior adviser Jason Miller who revealed them during an appearance on Steve Bannon's War Room podcast.

Miller revealed that Trump had joked about making news by revealing his views on Meghan and made references to Piers Morgan's GMB departure.

"When I was talking to the president this morning … he's like, 'Yeah, she's no good. I said that and now everybody's seeing it. But you realise if you say anything negative about Meghan Markle you get cancelled. Look at Piers."

It comes as Piers' book topped the Amazon bestseller charts and TV execs engaged in a '£10M bidding war' for the former GMB host.

He posted a picture of his book "Wake Up: Why the world has gone nuts" – which is now No.1 – knocking off Charlie Mackesy's "The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse".

The 55-year-old, who dramatically quit Good Morning Britain rather than apologise for his remarks about Meghan Markle, is highly sought-after by TV bosses on both sides of the Atlantic.

He has been publicly courted by both start-up news service GB News and Fox News in America.

Another 300,000 viewers switched off after Piers quit after refusing to publicly apologise for making a widely criticised statement that he didn't believe a word Meghan said during her controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    VIEWERS KEEN TO KNOW WHO IS REPLACING PIERS ON GMB

    Piers Morgan sensationally quit his job as host of Good Morning Britain.

    And viewers are now wondering who will be lined up to replace him on the ITV breakfast show.

    Famous names already tipped to replace the opinionated host on the ITV breakfast show include the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire.

    A telly source said: “ITV producers have been looking for the right platform for Victoria for a while. They think she is a real talent and one of the few opinionated TV journalists who could be a real powerhouse addition to GMB.

    “She’s not afraid to challenge guests, ask tough questions, get straight to the point and wax lyrical about what she believes in. They’re using Piers’ exit as an opportunity to trial new faces.”

    'ONLY £10M?' – PIERS JOKES ABOUT 'BIDDING WAR'

    Piers Morgan has tweeted in response to a Sun story about him being locked in a mega-money bidding war that could see him return to the US.

    “People love his honesty, even the people that don’t like him, they can’t help but be interested in what he says.

    “Some of the offers have hit the £10million mark, and it seems he may be able to land exactly what he wants.”

    PIERS MORGAN ON GMB: A BRIEF HISTORY

    Piers began hosting Good Morning Britain alongside Susanna Reid in October 2015, and is well-known for his brash interview style.

    His hard questioning of MPs during the Covid pandemic saw ministers avoid the popular morning show.

    Susanna recently told The Times how when she was told 18 months into her job on GMB that Piers would be her co-presenter she took off her microphone as a precaution and said: “Do you know what you are doing?”

    She added: “Piers Morgan is like sitting next to a pincushion. We do fight like Punch and Judy, verbally. We’re sparring all the time. You say he takes up more of the oxygen, but I use my chunk of time, I hope, very wisely.”

    PIERS’ REFUSAL TO SAY SORRY ‘LED TO STAND-OFF’ WITH PRODUCERS

    Piers Morgan’s refusal to say sorry live on air over his comments regarding Meghan Markle reportedly led to a “stand-off” with producers.

    An ITV source said: “Ultimately it ended with him telling producers he would not host the show anymore.

    “His contract was coming to an end this year anyway, but he said he wouldn’t do the job unless it was on his terms.

    “The growing pressure from building Ofcom complaints and a swell of anger on social media gave bosses no choice but to try and get him to apologise.

    “Unfortunately there were also a lot of concerns raised with the GMB production team too. Charity Mind also expressed their concerns to senior execs at ITV saying it clashes with their campaign.”

    PIERS RESIGNED AFTER REFUSING TO APOLOGISE ON AIR

    Piers Morgan dramatically quit Good Morning Britain after ITV bosses asked him to publicly apologise under the pressure of more than 40,000 Ofcom complaints.

    The TV host, 55, resigned after senior execs said they wanted him to say sorry on air following his heated clash with the show’s weatherman Alex Beresford, 40, over Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    Piers stormed off set during the huge row with his GMB co-star on Tuesday morning after Alex criticised for his reaction to Meghan’s claims she contemplated suicide and was racially abused by the royal family.

    But Piers said he was not willing to apologise, and walked — bringing an immediate end to his six-year stint on the morning show.

    His co-host Susanna Reid, 50, was seen in tears yesterday after a series of heated meetings at ITV’s studios in Television Centre, West London.

    HANDWRITTEN RANT (CONTINUED…)

    “I thus became the latest ‘victim’ of the cancel culture that is permeating our country, every minute, of every hour, of everyday. Though of course, I consider myself to be neither a victim, nor actually cancelled.

    “However, I do believe the defence of free speech and the right to express honestly held opinions, is the most important issue of my career, and the most important issue in British society.”

    He then urged followers to buy his book if they wanted to show support, insisting: “It’s less than a tenner. I didn’t write it to make more money but because the very foundations of democracy, built upon freedom of expression, freedom of thought and freedom of speech, are under attack like never before and must be defended.

    “It is a privilege to live in a democracy, and it is a privilege to be British. As I said when I left GMB, the right to free speech is a hill worth dying on. So, have a read, and if you like it, give it to one of your friends.

    “This is not simply an act of defiance, but a commitment to our collective futures."

    “It has been an extraordinary week for me, for Britain, for our monarchy and for our future.

    “Those of you that know me well enough know that, despite my many faults, I’m always willing to stand my ground for the things that I think matter most.

    “My fervent opposition to the Iraq War led to my demise from the Daily Mirror. My outspoken views on the insanity of American gun laws led to the end of my time at CNN.

    “And now I’ve lost my job at Good Morning Britain because I chose not to apologise for disbelieving Meghan Markle’s claims in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
