"I would sit down and give an interview with Oprah," Drudge said on "The Savage Nation" radio show. "Do you know in the '80s he did and she melted in his presence? The audience of women melted in his presence."

"Now, that doesn't mean he changes his policies ... but why not do a little bit more to reach out to the other half?" he added.


Drudge said that Twitter "feeds the junkies" and caters to a small group of people, but by setting up an interview with the talk show star, Trump could reach a larger audience and do more to sell his political agenda.

Drudge was weighed in on the pair before, sending a tweet last month urging Winfrey to launch a presidential bid against Trump in 2020 after she indicated she had reconsidered whether she could be president.

The ultra-conservative political commentator and founder of the Drudge Report has been an avid backer of Trump. But he said Friday that the president's young administration is in "crisis," alleging that Congress is sabotaging Trump and criticizing media coverage of his administration.
