Donald Trump Calls Oprah "Insecure" After Watching Her '60 Minutes' Debate

Following her incredibly moving speech at this year's Golden Globes, many were hoping Oprah may run for president.

President Trump on Sunday night lashed out at another billionaire TV personality: Oprah Winfrey.

Winfrey was moderating a discussion aired on Sunday between 14 pro- and anti-Trump voters from Grand Rapids, Michigan, that were invited back onto the program, following up from a previous interview held six months ago.

Satirically referred to as the tweeter-in-chief, President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter yet again to belittle and challenge his one time friend, media mogul Oprah Winfrey, to run against him in the 2020 presidential election. The president slammed the questions for being "biased" and "slanted" and said the facts were "incorrect". But she did ask questions ranging from whether the country is better off economically to whether respect for the country is eroding around the world.

Following her recent Time's Up speech, fans of the television icon recently encouraged the OWN owner to run for president. She said she was humbled by the fact that people think she could be the leader of the free world, but said it is not just in her spirit.

However, despite many people's desire for a high-profile challenger from the left, Winfrey has repeatedly denying being interested in a presidential bid.

Oprah, a 60 Minutes contributor, was the moderator.

Glass building at Apple headquarters causing headaches for employees
That's resulted in repeated cases of distracted employees walking into the panes, according to people familiar with the incidents. One of the defining features of the office, located on the stunning 175-acre campus, is the abundant use of glass panes.

In January, Oprah proclaimed the end of women having come forward with stories of #MeToo is around the corner in an empowering acceptance speech at the Golden Globes.

Responding to the rumours earlier this year, Mr Trump said he did not think Oprah would run, and that he would secure another four years in office if she did enter the race.

Trump called out Winfrey for being "insecure".

Before Winfrey shut down the rumors, Trump spoke out during a press briefing to tell the media that "Oprah would be a lot of fun".

"I think if I was considering a run, it definitely would", she says.

"There is no difference around that table than what you would hear at any place of work, in people's dining room tables, even college campuses across the country", Luntz noted.

"It never has felt to me that that I was supposed to be political and it still does not feel that to me".
