In an interview set to air on ABC with “Good Morning America” co-anchor and “This Week” moderator George Stephanopoulos, recently announced 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump discussed the possibility that he might be on a ticket with Oprah Winfrey, which was a notion he floated back in 1999 when he was flirting with the possibility of being a Reform Party presidential candidate.
“She’s great, she’s talented, she’s a friend of mine,” Trump said. “She’s a good person. I’ve been on her show. In fact, I was on her show her last week, she said, ‘Could I be on her show with the whole family?'” Trump said. “I like Oprah. I mean, is that supposed to be a bad thing? I don’t think so.”
As for Winfrey being on the ticket, Trump said it would improve his chances.
“I think Oprah would be great,” he added. “I’d love to have Oprah. I think we’d win easily, actually.”
