WASHINGTON — President Winfrey? No way, says political prognosticator Donald Trump.
“I’ll beat Oprah,” the president declared flatly at a White House meeting Tue., Jan. 9 — though he quickly added, “I don’t think she’s going to run.”

Trump appeared on Winfrey’s long-running talk show in 1988 and again with his family in 2011, during her final season.
As Democrats encouraged Winfrey to consider a bid, her best friend, CBS News host Gayle King, said Tuesday that Winfrey is “intrigued” by the idea.
