Oprah on talking to Trump: ‘I would only speak if I felt that I could be heard'
TV Icon Oprah Winfrey spoke out about what she’d say to President Trump if she got the chance to talk with him, in a CNN interview on Sunday.
“I would only speak where I feel that I can be heard. So, I would only speak if I felt I could be heard,” she said.
The interview comes just a day after Trump held a campaign rally in Pennsylvania for congressional candidate Rick Saccone. During the rally Trump said he’d love to beat Winfrey in the 2020 election, alleging he knows her “weakness”...
“I would love to beat Oprah. I know her weakness. Wouldn’t we love to run against Oprah? I would love it. I would love it. That would be a painful experience for her.”
A CNN poll from January showed Winfrey ahead of Trump by 9 points in a hypothetical 2020 Matchup.
While speculation has grown over whether Winfrey might consider a bid after a rousing speech in January during the Golden Globes, she has denied considering a campaign.
During Sunday’s interview, she noted that politicians tend to focus on the negative -- urging them not to spend all their time blasting their opponents.
“Do not spend all your time talking about your opponents. Do not give your energy to that which you really don’t believe in.”
