*Donald Trump had nothing better to do Sunday night than hate-tweet about Oprah Winfrey following her “60 Minutes” segment on America’s political divide.
“Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes,” tweeted Trump, 71, at 11:28 p.m. “The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!”
Winfrey’s report followed up her September segment featuring the same panel of Trump voters and non-Trump voters in the battleground state of Michigan. The goal of the segment was to understand their thoughts on his presidency and direction of the country one year after he took office.
In the wake of Winfrey’s historic #MeToo speech during the Golden Globes in January, an #Oprah2020 movement took root, with many stars – including Meryl Streep and Steven Spielberg – calling on Winfrey to consider running. Days later, Trump addressed the speculation, telling the press, “Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah.”
Trump, who in 1999 thought Winfrey would be a good running mate, added: “I know her very well. 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.”
Winfrey, meanwhile, has been clear that she has no intention of running for president. “Because if God actually wanted me to run, wouldn’t God kind of tell me?” she said in a 60 Minutes Overtime clip separate from Sunday’s report. “And I haven’t heard that.”
