Shots Fired! Trump Says He Would Beat Oprah…and It’s True

On Tuesday, President Trump addressed the elephant (or should I say donkey?) in the room: Oprah Winfrey.

He claims that he would defeat her if she were to run in 2020, but then added that he does not believe that she will.

Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter who runs at this point….Trump is going to beat them. That goes especially for Oprah! She is nothing more than Obama 2.0!

Fox News Insider reports: 

Trump took a few questions after a meeting with top Democrats and Republicans on a potential immigration deal on border security and DACA.

As he wrapped up the event, a reporter asked “can you you beat Oprah?”

Trump replied, “Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah.”

“I like Oprah. I don’t think she’s gonna run,” he said, and then jokingly added that the reporters should have “enough material,” to “cover you for about two weeks.”


Trump replied, “Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah.”


Many people believe that Winfrey plans to run, but the speculation is still just that.

The speculation around Winfrey’s political aspirations ramped up immediately after her speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night.

“I want all of the girls watching here now to know, that a new day is on the horizon,” she said in a speech about civil rights and the #MeToo movement.

Winfrey’s close friend, CBS anchor Gayle King, said Tuesday that Winfrey is “intrigued by the idea” of running for president, but did not write her speech with politics in mind.
