According to Donald Trump, a 2016 ticket of Trump for president and Oprah Winfrey for vice president would be a lock for the White Home.
“I believe Oprah would be wonderful. I’d love to have Oprah,” Trump told ABC News. “I believe we’d win conveniently, basically.”
Trump announced his presidential candidacy in a speech at Trump Tower in Manhattan Tuesday, sitting with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos at his higher-rise for his initially interview as a candidate.
Trump floated Winfrey as a probable running mate in 1999, when he regarded as running for president as a member of the Reform Party, in an interview with Larry King.
“She’s excellent, she’s talented, she’s a friend of mine,” Trump told ABC’s Stephanopoulos when asked if Winfrey is still on his VP shortlist.
“She’s a very good person. I’ve been on her show. In truth, I was on her show her final week, she mentioned, ‘Could I be on her show with the complete loved ones?'” Trump stated. “I like Oprah. I imply, is that supposed to be a poor thing? I don’t assume so.”
