Trump Says Running Against Oprah Would Be ‘a Lot of Fun’

Buzz Grows for Oprah 2020

President Donald Trump said he’d welcome a re-election challenge from fellow billionaire Oprah Winfrey.

“Oprah would be a lot of fun,” he said Tuesday. But Trump also predicted that he’d win.

Speculation about Winfrey’s possible presidential candidacy rose to a fever pitch on Monday after she delivered a stirring speech at the Golden Globes that was regarded as a rebuke to Trump. The former talk-show host said after the speech that she doesn’t plan to run, but associates including her longtime partner Stedman Graham suggested she is considering a campaign.

“I don’t think she’s going to run,” Trump said at a meeting with senators at the White House on Tuesday, after reminiscing about appearing on one of her last shows.
