President Trump said Tuesday he could beat entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey in the 2020 presidential race, but doesn’t think she’ll make a run for the White House.
“Yeah, I'll beat Oprah. Oprah will be lots of fun,” Trump told reporters during a meeting with lawmakers about immigration. “I don’t think she’s going to run.”
Winfrey’s rousing speech at the Golden Globe awards started an avalanche of speculation that she could run for president. Her speech ignited a media frenzy over the possibility that Winfrey, a beloved television personality and business mogul, could take on Trump, himself a reality TV star and one of the most famous people in the world.
At the Oval Office meeting on Tuesday, Trump reminded reporters that he had been on one of Winfrey’s last shows.
