Donald Trump calls Oprah Winfrey 'insecure' on Twitter
Many had earlier expected Winfrey to bid for the presidential post in 2020. Although Winfrey has dismissed all the speculations regarding the 2020 presidential bid, Trump said in his tweet that he wanted Oprah to run so that she could be “exposed and defeated.”
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2018
Although Trump has spoken positively about Winfrey in the past, Oprah has presented herself as a vocal critic of the current American president many times, including at the 2018 Golden Globes.
