'Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!'
US president Donald Trump has fired off yet another angry tweet and this time it is about media mogul Oprah Winfrey. Winfrey hosted a segment of CBS’s 60 Minutes program late Sunday and discussed about Trump’s first year in office with a panel of 14 Republican, Democrat and Independent voters from Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“One year into Donald Trump’s presidency, Americans remain divided, often unwilling to listen to what the other side has to say,” she said when introducing the panellists.
At a point of her discussion, Winfrey asked the panellists, “Polls are showing that respect for the United States is eroding around the world. Do you care what the world thinks of the United States?”
“There have been some members of Congress, including Republicans, questioning his stability and fitness for office. What do you think of that, and do you believe he has the temperament to be president?” she also asked.
“Do you think the president is held to a different standard when it comes to this issue of sexual harassment?” ran another question.
In response, 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!” he further wrote imposing a challenge toward the renowned media proprietor, talk show host, producer and philanthropist.
However, after speculations became rife about her potential presidential run, Winfrey has confirmed various media outlets that she is not running for president. Although, she also added that she has considered it at a point, after the mounting amount of media speculation.
