Meghan Markle Biography Claims Actress Avoided Donald Trump on 'Deal or No Deal'

A new book claims Prince Harry's soon-to-be wife Meghan Markle gave President Donald Trump the slip sometime between 2006 and 2007, while the 36-year-old was working as a model and Trump was most famous for his reality show and business empire.

The revelations come from Princess Diana's biographer Andrew Morton, who wrote the unofficial biography Meghan: A Hollywood Princess. In an excerpt released to The Cut ahead of the April 17 debut,the author revealed that the Suits actress was one of several girls who avoided Trump while working as a briefcase girl on game show Deal or No Deal. As part of the gig, Markle and fellow models revealed prizes hidden inside suitcases.

According to the author, some girls who appeared on the show described the current president as "creepy."

"One guest caused quite the frisson: Donald Trump, then making a guest appearance to cross-promote The Apprentice," Morton wrote in the book. "He gave girls his card and invited them to play golf at one of his courses. Fellow briefcase girl Tameka Jacobs told me, 'He was super-creepy, but some girls were attracted to money and power and took his number. Meghan was one of the girls who gave him a wide berth.'"

Markle, who is scheduled to marry Prince Harry at Windsor Castle on May 19, has publicly spoken out against Trump. During a May 2016 interview on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, the actress called him "divisive" and "misogynistic."

Trump guest starred on Deal or No Deal around the same time he allegedly had an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels. At the time, Trump had recently married Melania in 2005, and she gave birth to their only son, Barron, in 2006.

Trump has been accused of untoward behavior while in a professional setting in the past. The president was accused of forcing himself upon People magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff during a 2005 interview at Mar-a-lago. The reporter wrote a first-person account of the alleged incident shortly after the infamous Access Hollywood tape was released in October 2016, weeks ahead of the general election.

Summer Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice, also told reporters in October that she was inappropriately touched and kissed by the president. Zervos is now suing the president for defamation of character.

Trump, meanwhile, has denied all allegations leveled against him.
