President Trump tweeted criticism of a "60 Minutes" panel discussion moderated by Oprah Winfrey that was broadcast Sunday night, slamming her questions to the politically divided group and expressing the hope that she runs against him in 2020.
Trump launched the attack after Winfrey's appearance on CBS's 60 Minutes Sunday, in which she interviewed a group of MI voters on Trump's time in the White House.
Trump claimed that Winfrey posed "biased and slanted" questions to a panel on the CBS news program.
"The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect", Trump said.
Oprah has already said she will not run for president in 2020, but did consider it.
She has however told various media outlets, including Entertainment Weekly, that she is not interested in running for the office but has considered it, after all the media speculation. "Their time is up", she said. I know her very well.
"And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say "Me too" again". I like Oprah. I don't think she's going to run. Half of the people from the group voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election, the other half did not. "What do you think of that, and do you believe he has the temperament to be president?" "However, she has repeatedly denied she has any desire to run".
However, Trump himself had praised Winfrey on several occasions, even once floating her as a possible vice presidential pick before his own official entry into politics. "Don't you have something more important to do than insult talk show hosts?"
