”Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah,” he told reporters in the Cabinet Room during a meeting on immigration with members of Congress.
But the president added he does not thinking she’ll throw her hat into the ring.
”I like Oprah, I don’t think she’s going to run.”
The White House fielded questions about a potential Winfrey candidacy.
Asked by reporters during the daily briefing what advice Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would give a political outsider to run for president, she declined to take the bait.
”I’m not going to focus on anyone’s campaign other than President Trump’s re-election.”
Washington Examiner contributor Siraj Hashmi told Zoomer Radio’s ”Fight Back” with guest host Jane Brown a Winfrey presidential run would be a ”revenge fantasy” of sorts.
”It would be nice if Democrats nominate somebody with some governing experience because they criticized Donald Trump for not having any political or governing experience. Why would they then go to someone who has no governing experience as well,” said Hashmi during the AM 740 radio interview.
