Drudge Report Looking Forward To 2020 Election
The Drudge Report’s Matt Drudge believes there will be a 2020 Presidential race between President Donald Trump and widely successful daytime talk show host, Oprah Winfrey.
Matt Drudge has always been known as a reclusive journalist, even when he broke the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal. In a tweet, he announced the possibility of a Trump vs. Oprah race for President.
Drudge wrote, “Trump vs Oprah would be the most epic race in American history. MAKE THIS HAPPEN…”
Oprah On Bloomberg
Drudge made this announcement after Oprah was featured on Bloomberg. Despite being filmed back in December, Bloomberg just featured a video where Oprah said she had to rethink her candidacy when Trump beat Clinton.
Bloomberg’s David Rubenstein asked, “Have you ever thought that given the popularity you have, we haven’t broken the glass ceiling yet for women, that you could actually run for president, and actually be elected?
“I actually never thought that that was — I never considered that question, even a possibility,” said Oprah. The talk show host was pressed on the issue but said you used to think, “You have to know much more than you have to know…”
Oddly enough, Trump once considered Oprah as his running mate.
Trump Once Suggested Oprah As VP
Author and Republican political operative Roger Stone wrote the book, The Making of the President 2016. Inside the book, Stone wrote about a 1999 episode of CNN’s Larry King Live where Trump first announced the possibility of running for office.
“So I am going to form a presidential exploratory committee,” began Trump. “I might as well announce that on your show, everyone else does.” Later in the show, Larry King asked the future President who his vice president might be.
After a moment of thinking on the issue, Trump said, “Oprah. I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice. She’s a terrific woman. She is somebody that is very special. If she’d do it, she’d be fantastic. She’s popular…brilliant…wonderful.”
Do you think Oprah would ever run for President?
