Donald Trump, in a 1999 interview with Chris Matthews, said a Trump-Oprah presidential ticket would be "very formidable."
"Well, I would consider, and as Chris can tell you, I threw out the name of a friend of mine, who I think the world of. She's great. And some people thought it was an incredible idea, some people didn't, but Oprah. I said, 'Oprah Winfrey,' who's really great. And I think we would be a very formidable team," Trump said during a Q&A session on a Hardball college campus tour.
Last night, at the Golden Globes, Oprah Winfrey gave a passionate speech that has the media talking about a potential Oprah 2020 presidential run.
