The mainstream media is continuing to fuel speculation that Oprah Winfrey might run for president in 2020, but President Donald Trump isn’t concerned.
“Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun,” Trump told reporters Tuesday during a meeting with bipartisan lawmakers about immigration.
Still, the president said Tuesday that he likes Winfrey. But knowing her personally, Trump said that he does not think Winfrey will challenge him for the White House.
“I don’t think she’s going to run. … I know her very well,” Trump told reporters.
“I did one of her last shows … I like Oprah,” he added.
Winfrey’s well-received speech at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards reignited speculation about a possible bid for president in 2020. While those close to Winfrey signaled that she could consider it, the former talk show host herself has repeatedly tamped down rumors.
