President Donald Trump told journalists Tuesday that he would have no problem defeating television superstar Oprah Winfrey in the 2020 presidential race, saying “I’ll beat Oprah” but adding that the race “would be a lot of fun.”
The President was speaking with reporters following high-level meetings when he was asked about Winfrey’s potential run for the White House, adding that “I don’t think she’s going to run.”
“Can you beat Oprah by the way?” asked one reporter.
“Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun. I know her very well. I did one of her last shows. She had ‘Donald Trump’ for her last week. She had Donald Trump and my family and it was very nice. I like Oprah, but I don’t think she’s going to run.”
Oprah made national headlines this week when she delivered an impassioned speech regarding sexual harassment during the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards in Hollywood, sparking rumors that the television giant may be considering a potential run against Donald Trump for the White House in 2020.
