Donald Trump Says Prince Harry Could be Deported from US Over Drug Use

Former US President Donald Trump stated that if Prince Harry had lied on his visa application regarding drug-taking, he would pursue "appropriate action" if he were to win November's presidential election, refusing to rule out the possibility of Harry leaving the United States.

Trump made these remarks in an interview with British right-leaning media outlet GB News, conducted by presenter and frequent Harry critic Nigel Farage.
US visa applicants are obligated to disclose any history of drug use, as it can impact their application status. Providing false information on an application can lead to penalties, including deportation.

Harry, who has resided in California since 2020, openly admitted to past illegal drug use in his memoir "Spare." Subsequently, the conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation, filed a lawsuit against the US Homeland Security Department to obtain access to Harry's immigration records. Earlier this month, a judge ruled in favour of disclosing the details related to Harry's visa application in that case.

Farage, a long-time ally of Trump, asked the former president if Prince Harry should be granted any "special privileges" if it was discovered that he had lied on his application.
Trump responded: "No. We'll have to determine if they have information regarding the drugs, and if he indeed lied, appropriate action will be taken."

When pressed on whether this might entail Harry "not staying in America," Trump replied, "Oh, I don't know. You'll have to inform me. It's surprising they didn't know this earlier."

Since Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped back from their royal duties and relocated to California, they have frequently criticised the treatment they received from the British royal family.

From their revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021 to a Netflix documentary series and Harry's forthcoming book, the couple has asserted that the royals and their aides failed to shield them from a hostile press and leaked negative stories.

Since departing for the United States after their marriage in 2018, the couple has seldom returned to Britai.
