I’ll beat Oprah Winfrey if she runs for President – Donald Trump

As speculation continues to swirl about an Oprah Winfrey presidential run after her rousing Golden Globes speech, President Donald Trump waded into the conversation Tuesday, saying he believes he’ll defeat the media mogul if she runs for president in 2020.

Trump, speaking to reporters in the White House, said: "Yeah, I'll beat Oprah"

He then shared his opinion that he didn't think Winfrey would run but that she "would be a lot of fun."

"I know her very well," the president added. "You know, I did one of her last shows. She had Donald Trump — this was before politics — her last week, and she had Donald Trump and my family. It was very nice... I like Oprah."

Watch him speak below:
Trump's remarks followed comments from Winfrey's close friend and "CBS This Morning" co-anchor Gayle King, who weighed in on the topic and downplayed the notion Tuesday morning.

“I don't think at this point she is considering it, but listen, there are people who have said they want to be her campaign manager, who want to quit their jobs and campaign for her,” King said on "CBS This Morning."

“She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think that she's actively considering it,” King told her co-anchors.

But King did acknowledge a glimmer of hope for those dreaming of a Winfrey bid: “I do think she's intrigued by the idea. I do think that. I do think that after years of watching ‘The Oprah Show,’ you always have a right to change your mind,” she said.
Oprah herself had in October 2017 said there is no running for office of any kind for her.

She said this while talking on “CBS This Morning” also. She said: “There will be no running for office of any kind for me.”
