  • Trump: I hope Oprah runs in 2020 so she can be defeated

Winfrey led a panel discussion with 14 people, who were interviewed a year ago, in MI to mark Trump's first year in office.

President Trump went after Oprah Winfrey Sunday evening after watching a "60 Minutes" panel she moderated with pro-and anti-Trump voters that questioned his fitness for office. He said the questions she asked were biased and slanted and the facts were incorrect. Trump also said he hoped she runs for president in 2020 so "she can be exposed and defeated".

"I think it's a insane game, it's an ego game", she said, "and I just want a president who cares more about America than his own ego".

Donald Trump has insulted Oprah Winfrey and challenged the TV star to challenge him in the 2020 presidential election.

Unsurprisingly, it doesn't seem Trump actually watched the60 Minutes segment, which was the follow up to a previous discussion with a bipartisan group of 14 MI voters.

Sunday the President accused Winfrey of conducting a one-sided interview on CBS' 60 minutes. It was the exact kind of speech that left you legitimately feeling that she could actually be president. I've always felt secure and confident with myself in knowing what I can do and what I can't.And so it is not something that interests me. Trump said in June 2015 when Stephanopoulos noted that the president told Larry King in 1999 that he'd consider making Winfrey his running mate.

Speaking to CBS last week, she again denied she was pondering running for president.

"Oprah would be a lot of fun. I was just trying to give a good speech", she said in the interview.

He blasted Oprah calling her "insecure".

Winfrey had been backed by a number of high-profile stars, including Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, to become the next USA president.

"I don't agree that it is okay to tweet the way that he does, getting in a war with North Korea, 'My button's bigger than your button, '" she said. If God wanted me to run, wouldn't God tell me?

"And wouldn't I know?"

Bringing the curtain down on an active weekend of tweeting, during which he addressed suggestions of collusion with Russian Federation and criticised the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the President declared he had been left unimpressed by the talk show host's appearance on CBS News programme 60 Minutes.
