President Donald Trump has challenged Oprah Winfrey to run for president in 2020 after slamming an interview she did with voters as “biased” and “incorrect”.
Mr. Trump doesn’t appreciate this criticism , he warned the “very insecure” TV host would be “exposed and defeated” if she were to put herself forward as a candidate in the next election.
Well, is this how a president responds? Not much appreciable
After apparently tuning into CBS show 60 Minutes, he commented on Twitter where Winfrey quizzed seven voters who voted for Trump and seven who voted against him.
Mr. President uttered : “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!”
Winfrey led a panel discussion with 14 people in Michigan, who were interviewed a year ago, to mark Trump’s first year in office.

She opened the program saying: “One year into Donald Trump’s presidency, Americans remain divided, often unwilling to listen to what the other side has to say.
“It’s happening in families, among friends and at the workplace. We witnessed that schism first-hand last fall when we went to Grand Rapids, Michigan, and gathered 14 people — seven who voted for Mr Trump, seven who did not — for a wide-ranging discussion about politics, policy and the president himself.
“To mark President Trump’s first year in office we decided to repeat the experiment.”
Winfrey was mentioned as a potential 2020 candidate last month after a show-stopping speech at the Golden Globe Awards. However, she previously said that she didn’t intend to run for president.
“I don’t have the DNA for it,” Winfrey told InStyle last year. “That’s not for me.”
Winfrey appeared to reaffirm that sentiment last week.
In the interview, aired after her CBS show on Sunday, she confessed she was “humbled” that people actually believe she has what it takes to run the country.
She added: “I’ve never looked outside for other people to tell me when I should be making a move.
