  • Trump called out the talk host at a Pennsylvania rally Saturday
  • He said it would be ‘painful’ for her to run and that he knows her ‘weakness’
  • Winfrey tamped down speculation she would run against Trump, although she also said she has  prayed on it

President Donald Trump suggested Oprah Winfrey might want to think twice about running against him – because he knows her ‘weakness.’

Trump brought up the potential 2020 rival at a Pennsylvania rally Saturday night to tout Rep. Rick Saccone (R) in a special election, where he couldn’t help but run through one of the more tantalizing match-ups for his own reelection.

‘I would love Oprah to win,’ Trump said, looking to the potential Democratic primary.

‘I would love to beat Oprah. I know her weakness,’ Trump said.

‘Wouldn’t we love to run against Oprah! I would love it. I would love it. That would be a painful experience for her,’ he said.

Trump didn’t elaborate on her weakness, or why she might find it painful to run.

He has noted that he appeared on one of her last shows when she signed off on her long-running network TV career.

He brought up Winfrey in a freewheeling rally where he also blasted MSNBC as ‘horrible,’ went after ‘Pocahontas’ Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and called NBC host Chuck Todd ‘sleepy eyed.’ 

Winfrey became the source of speculation about run after a powerful speech at the Golden Globes, though she then tamped down the idea.

In an interview with people, she kept alive the possibility of getting a signal from god.

‘I went into prayer,’ she said. ‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’ And I haven’t gotten that yet,’ Winfrey told the magazine.

As The Hill noted, Trump also went after Winfrey after she interviewed voters on CBS ’60 Minutes.’

‘Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes,’ Trump tweeted. ‘The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect.’

‘Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!’ he continued.
