US President Donald Trump said Tuesday he would beat television star Oprah Winfrey if she chose to run for president.

Rumors that Winfrey was planning to run for office have been circulating for some time, but they intensified following her powerful speech at Monday’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

Two of Winfrey’s closest friends told CNN on Monday she is “actively thinking” about running for the White House.

Trump, himself a former reality television star, told reporters Winfrey “would be a lot of fun” but added, “I don’t think she’s going to run.”
