Donald Trump Jr. criticized NBC on Monday for publicly endorsing Oprah Winfrey in a potential presidential run against President Donald Trump in 2020 following her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment” at the 75th annual Golden Globe awards.
In the wake of Winfrey’s speech, which has been lauded by the media, celebrities and Winfrey fans, NBC tweeted, “Nothing but respect for OUR future president.”

In a Monday morning tweet, Trump Jr. wrote that the media bias against the president “is now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it.”
“In case anyone had any doubts about where the media stands this should take care of it. The bias against @realDonaldTrump is now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it. Can you trust anything they say at this point? Americans see the truth in job #s & in their wallets!” Trump Jr. tweeted.

During her acceptance speech, Winfrey implored the audience to support the media, in a veiled slam against President Trump, claiming that it is “under siege these days.”
“We also know it’s the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice,” said Winfrey.
“I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this,” Winfrey added. “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.”
