'Yeah I'll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun'

Republican President Donald Trump would gladly face Winfrey - one of the United States' wealthiest women and long associated with Democratic politics and fundraising - as in the 2020 presidential race, a White House spokesman said on Monday.

Mr Trump said he did not think the actress and talk show host would run. In a 1999 television interview when he said he was thinking about running for president the following year (although he did not), Trump declared, "Oprah would always be my first choice" for a running mate, adding, "she's brilliant" and "a very exceptional woman". He says, "Oprah would be a lot of fun". King said her friend is intrigued by the idea of a candidacy, but didn't think she was actively considering it. I do think she was intrigued by the idea.

Finishing off, Oprah said "a new day is on the horizon", something many people could become a new campaign slogan in the next Presidential election. She's a terrific woman. Her acceptance speech only furthered the audience's interest in the possibility, and Winfrey's partner Stedman Graham told the Los Angeles Times that it is "up to the people".

"After last night's speech, all of these private jet liberals are all showing off their newfound political affection for Oprah". "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way", she added. "Her last week. She had Donald Trump and my family". Maybe she does. I guess they could do the coverage in a way where she never handles it. She was also criticized for serving as a surrogate for him.

In the past, Trump has spoken positively of Winfrey.

"I never want to rule it out totally, because I really am exhausted of seeing what's happening with this country, how we're really making other people live like kings, and we're not", he said. It was the right person giving the right speech at the right time.

King said Tuesday that she thought Graham misunderstood the Times reporter's question. "Apart from the debate over Trump's preparedness, all extra-political experience is not fungible - Oprah's (lack of) relevant experience is fair game", he tweeted.
