Back in January, Donald Trump said he’d beat Oprah Winfrey if she did decide to run on the Democratic ticket in the 2020 presidential election.
Now, according to the New York Daily News, Trump told a Pennsylvania crowd during a recent rally that he would “love Oprah to win” the Democratic primaries but then said, “I would love to beat Oprah. I know her weakness.”
We’re unsure of what Trump means by weakness. Maybe he’s referring to when he called her “insecure” after he saw an episode of her hosting a political roundtable for 60 minutes and called her questions “biased and slanted.”
Social media isn’t so sure a Trump victory it that hypothetical election would be so easy, or happen at all. See what they had to say below.

“I know Oprah’s weakness.”
After her incredibly inspiring speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday, Oprah Winfrey is already being called a presidential contender for the 2020 race. Although she has not said whether she actually plans to run, the current president offered his opinion about a potential Oprah candidacy.
During a meeting on immigration with members of Congress, President Trump was asked about Oprah running for president and he did not hesitate to give his opinion.
"Oprah will be a lot of fun," Trump said Tuesday. "I know her very well."
"I did one of her last shows. She had Donald Trump -- this is before politics -- her last week and she had Donald Trump and my family, it was very nice," the president said.
"No, I absolutely don't think that her position has changed. I don't. You know, I was up talking to her very late last night. I do think this though, guys. I do think she's intrigued by the idea. I do think that. I also know after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have a right to change your mind. I don't think at this point she is actually considering it. But listen, there are people who have said they want to be her campaign manager, who want to quit their jobs and campaign for her. She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think that she's actively considering it," said King.
