“And just to be direct, it’s [expletive],” he added while terming Meghan “strong and resilient.”  ‘All I have to say is that she’s one of the most incredible human beings that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with… I wish her nothing but the best. And I just hope people over in Britain, excuse my French, leave her alone.’ 

He then warned, ‘If they think that this kind of stuff is going to knock her off her game for very long, they picked the wrong woman to mess with.  ‘She is the wrong woman to mess with. They need to back up, back off, apologise because she’s not the one.’
