Donald Trump says he would 'beat Oprah' in presidency battle

Oprah sparks talk of White House bid with Golden Globes speech

We've got good news and (mostly) bad news for anyone hoping to see Oprah Winfrey on the ballot in 2020 following her uplifting speech at Sunday's Golden Globes.

"And here's why. The media and the left in this country, well, they now seem to think Oprah is the one person that can help them fulfill their ultimate goal-to destroy Donald Trump and defeat President Trump", he added. Would you really want to get mad at Oprah?

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah".

He recalled that he and his family appeared on Oprah's TV show in its final week.

"I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", King, a host on the CBS show, said.

"This should cover you for about two weeks".

Oprah Winfrey did more than just stir emotions last night (Jan. 7) at the Golden Globes.

Despite all this, she praised Oprah's message and echoed: "Let's all come together, women and men, and say Time's Up".


Per The Hill, Winfrey paid homage to the press and victims of sexual abuse during her acceptance of the Demille award, and she said that she wanted all the girls watching to know that a new day is on the horizon.

Watch the exchange above.

Winfrey, an African-American woman and rape survivor who grew up in poverty, is a self-made billionaire with the ability to emotionally connect with ordinary Americans through the media. "There will be no running for office of any kind for me", the mogul said at the time.

Winfrey's "time is up" phrase was a reference to the Time's Up initiative launched by prominent women in Hollywood to address sexual harassment in entertainment, politics, tech and other industries.

"I am sure of one thing", Tyler Jones, a South Carolina Democratic strategist and founder of SPEAK Strategic, told Newsweek in an email on Monday.

"She would be a serious candidate", said Jennifer Palmieri, former White House communications director under President Barack Obama and the communications director for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign. The boost comes amid rising speculation that Winfrey could have aspirations for a U.S. presidential run, despite her denial during a backstage interview. "You always have the right to change your mind".

After slamming NBC News for its deleted "OUR future president" tweet about Oprah, and using it to take more shots at the network, Hannity then derided "private jet liberals" over their "newfound political affection for Oprah".
