Rosie O'Donnell, the longtime antagonist to President TrumpDonald John TrumpTeachers union launches 0K ad buy calling for education funding in relief bill FDA head pledges 'we will not cut corners' on coronavirus vaccine Let our values drive COVID-19 liability protection MORE, said in a recent interview that she believes he will be arrested before the 2020 election.

Pressed by TMZ for a brief interview on Wednesday about whether she thinks Trump will be reelected in 2020, O’Donnell replied: “I certainly do not. I think he’ll be arrested.”

“I believe in America and I believe in our political system, and I believe we will right the wrong of the tyranny of Donald Trump,” she continued.


When asked further if she believes the president will ever succeed in having his long-desired border wall constructed, the comedic actress said: “No, it will never happen."

"Ever," she added.

O’Donnell and Trump have a years-old feud that is believed to have stemmed from critical remarks the comedian made of the then-real estate mogul when she was a co-host on “The View” in 2006. 

Trump has referred to O’Donnell in the past as a “loser” and a "pig," while the comedian has blasted him repeatedly as treasonous and “mentally unstable."

“I never in a million years would have imagined that so many people would fall for him,” O’Donnell said in reference to Trump in an interview with Variety in August.

“If you’re from New York, we understand all what he was about because we watched him try to create this façade in real time in front of our eyes as his planes were being repossessed from the runways of LaGuardia,” O'Donnell said.

“And now it’s so tragically sad what he’s doing to a part of the country that doesn’t have neither the time or the resources or desire to look deeper,” the Emmy Award winner continued. “He’s taking the people who are easily fooled and fooling them over and over again to the point where we are now in this horrible predicament.”
