The idea of an Oprah Winfrey run for president started after her speech at the Golden Globes earlier this year. During a rally over the weekend, Donald Trump sent a warning to his potential challenger.

Trump on Oprah

When Donald Trump first announced that he was running for president, he quickly gained headlines due to his reckless and controversial style, as well as being a well-known media personality. Since then, Trump has gone on to become the commander in chief, much to the chagrin of his critics.

While many wait and see who decides to run to represent the Democratic Party in 2020, one name that has gotten mention has been Oprah Winfrey, whose speech at this year's Golden Globes sparked a call to action.

Oprah Winfrey has since gone on the record to state that she would only run if God told her to, leaving the door open for her campaign to be a reality in the future. As reported by CNN on March 10, Donald Trump addressed a crowd of supporters in Moon Township, Pennsylvania on Saturday night while campaigning for Repubican candidate Rick Saccone. During his speech, Trump took a few shots at Oprah and sent a warning her way. "I'd love to beat Oprah. I know her weakness. I know her very well," Trump said.

"I was on her last show, or on the last week. She had Donald Trump and his family," the president said in the third person.

"I know her weakness. Wouldn't we love to run against Oprah?" Donald Trump rhetorically asked the crowd. Concluding his shot at Oprah, Trump said "that would be a painful experience for her." Following Trump's remarks, those who oppose the president wasted no time lashing out on social media.

Trump's Oprah backlash

After Donald Trump attacked Oprah Winfrey during his speech in Pennsylvania, he quickly faced immediate backlash. "Everyone in that audience has the combined IQ of 50," one tweet read.

"And all the dimmest bulbs on the porch are right there behind him," a Twitter user wrote.

"Ha ha, you wish! Oprah is much smarter than you. And I'm not voting for someone who is constantly putting other people down," an additional tweet pointed out. "You're going to be beating the cage of a federal prison by 2020," a follow-up tweet added.

"How about if he stops obsessing about Oprah.

It's strange," a social media user wrote. "Looking at this peanut gallery behind him....I now understand why he won. A mind is a precious thing to waste," a tweet noted. The negative reaction continued as it was clear the president has many critics across the country.
