President TrumpDonald John TrumpFederal watchdog accuses VOA parent company of wrongdoing under Trump appointee Lawsuit alleges 200K Georgia voters were wrongly purged from registration list Ivanka Trump gives deposition in lawsuit alleging misuse of inauguration funds MORE slammed Oprah Winfrey as “very insecure” in a tweet late Sunday night, saying he hopes she runs for president so “she can be exposed and defeated.”

“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. “The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect.” 


“Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!” he continued.



Winfrey had interviewed a group of Michigan voters for a “60 Minutes” segment that aired Sunday night. Half of the group had voted for Trump and the other half had not.

Speculation that Winfrey might run for president emerged after she delivered an emotional speech at the Golden Globes last month. However, she has denied that she was considering a presidential bid.

Trump has weighed in on a potential run by Winfrey before, saying that he didn’t think she would run but that if she did, he would beat her.
