President Donald Trump Tells Oprah Winfrey To BRING IT ON In 2020!
President Trump was in midst of an historic bi-partisan meeting on immigration Tuesday when a reporter asked him about Oprah Winfrey’s potential run for President in 2020.
The POTUS seemed amused…and as confident as ever.
Trump said that he would beat Oprah in an election race, but also praised her as a friend and mentioned appearing on her TV show.
More from the BBC:
“Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah,” Mr Trump told reporters during a meeting to discuss immigration reform with US senators.
His daughter Ivanka Trump joined a wave of praise for the media mogul’s speech at Sunday’s Golden Globe awards.
A Winfrey confidante says the actress is “intrigued” by the possibility of declaring a 2020 presidential campaign.
Her impassioned speech about the importance of tackling inequality drew plaudits from coast to coast.
Mr Trump said during his meeting on Tuesday that campaigning against Ms Winfrey would be “a lot of fun”.
He added: “I did one of her last shows. Her last week. She had Donald Trump and my family.”
“I like Oprah but I don’t think she’s going to run. I don’t think she’s going to run. I knew her very well,” he added.
Trump also touted Winfrey as a potential VP candidate in 1999. Given her speech at the Golden Globes a few nights ago, however, conservatives are extremely pleased that the President settled on Mike Pence instead!
