Trump Criticizes Oprah For Being 'Biased And Slanted'

Oprah Winfrey Donald Trump

When Oprah asks how, she says, "Well, I feel like I can say Merry Christmas to anyone I want wherever I want".

Trump's tweet about Oprah was a departure from recent tirades on his favourite communication platform, with recent posts including attacks on former president Barack Obama whom he says did nothing to sort out Russian Federation, and a much-criticised tweet blaming mental illness for the Florida school shooting that claimed 17 lives on Valentine's Day. In this instance, it was an episode of "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday evening, featuring Winfrey interviewing a panel of MI voters about their quality of life under the Trump administration. This Sunday, Winfrey brings the same 14 people around a table to talk politics again.

The 60 Minutes segment was a followup to a previous segment, when those same 14 people had come together in 2017.

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. In that speech, she defended the "under siege" press and spoke at length about sexual harassment and assault.

Trump: I hope Oprah runs in 2020 so she can be defeated
60 Minutes: Oprah Says “I Was Just Tryin' To Give a Good Speech”

"Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes", Trump tweeted. I don't think she's going to run. "And if I was considering a run, I would probably take myself out of the role of journalist or conversationalist".

The entertainment mogul drew wide praise after her speech at the Golden Globe Awards last month, which led to many calling for her to run for president.

Speaking to US InStyle magazine, Oprah said she "does not have the DNA" to be president. "I was just trying to give a good speech", she told Ann Silvio. "And I haven't heard that", said Winfrey. It is preposterous to think that the president of a grieving nation is busy commenting on celebrities and engaging in unfruitful social media spats while students, teachers and parents are marching on the streets, demanding justice and gun law reforms, including all guns to be banned. Because if God actually wanted me to run, wouldn't God kinda tell me? "I knew her very well", he added. "He did not look at this as people in those countries, in my opinion". "I've never gone in to lose in my life". It was edited by Lisa Orlando with help from Sarah Shafer Prediger, Will Croxton, and Rebecca Chertok Gonsalves.

George Groves dominates Chris Eubank Jr
The Brighton-based boxer continued to let fly and Groves proved too clever, bypassing one hook as Eubank Jr fell into the ropes. Although more of the general public are piling in on Groves , it's Eubank Jr who is attracting the bigger stakes.
