‘Frenemies’ Donald and Oprah

During his April campaign in Georgia, Donald Trump made an interesting revelation. According to The Hill, Trump confessed that he and Oprah Winfrey used to be friends before he ran for office.

Oprah was a friend of mine until I ran for office. Once I ran for office she diverged.


As a Republican, Trump probably didn’t like that Winfrey was campaigning for Stacey Abrams, a representative of the opponent Democrats. Trump even accused the host of burning the tape of his guest appearance on Oprah’s show.

I was on her full show on the last week. I think they’re trying to burn the tape.

Donald and Oprah were indeed in good terms for a long period of time. Trump even made 8 appearances on her show during 1988-2011.

Donald’s children also appeared on The Oprah Winfrey’s Show. And there was no sign of tension between the host and any member of the Trump family.

Once, Donald and Oprah had a very candid conversation during Trump’s early appearances. They even joked about how Donald’s life would change if he became a president.

It’s sad when politics set two former friends apart.
