President Donald J. Trump., the U.S. President blasted media mogul Oprah Winfrey on Twitter on Sunday night over a segment on CBS’s 60 minutes programme and again said he hoped she would face him as an opponent in the 2020 presidential race.
Television host Oprah, who is now a contributor to the CBS programme, led a panel of 14 Republicans, Democrats and Independent voters from Grand Rapids, Michigan in a wide ranging discussion about Trump’s first year in office.
Afterwards, Trump tweeted: “Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes.
“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!”
Oprah Winfrey has however told various media outlets, that she is not running for president, but has considered it, after there was much recent media speculation.
Winfrey made no declarative statements for or against the president in the programme, but she asked questions ranging from whether the country is better off economically to whether respect for the country is diminishing around the world.
