Donald Trump slammed Oprah Winfrey following a program she hosted on CBS’s 60 Minutes.


The media mogul invited a panel of 14 Democrat, Republican and Independent voters – seven who voted for Trump, seven who did not – to discuss Trump’s first year in office. On Sunday, she completed a follow-up interview in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with the same group. As a result, the president tweeted out that Winfrey was “very insecure,” asked “biased” questions and got all her “facts incorrect.” He ended by saying that he hopes she runs for president in 2020 so that he can defeat her.


“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!

She did ask a series of questions ranging from whether or not the country is better off economically under Trump to whether the respect for the U.S. is declining worldwide under him.
