Oprah Winfrey has been repeatedly attacked by President Donald Trump ever since her powerful Golden Globes speech that led to people calling for her to run for president. But the media mogul is handling it in a way that everybody can learn from.
Trump called Winfrey “very insecure” in a tweet last month and over the weekend, he promised to make a possible presidential run “painful” for Winfrey.
“I would love to beat Oprah,” Trump said during a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday night. “I know her weakness.”
On Sunday, CNN’s Van Jones asked Oprah what she would say in response to Trump’s comments and she said: “I wouldn’t. I would only speak if I felt that I could be heard.”
She’s been handling Trump’s tantrum in a very mature manner in spite of his continued attacks. The funny thing is she hasn’t even declared her intention to run but he’s already insecure at the perceived threat. She has since said she hasn’t heard from God on the issue of running for the US President come 2020.
Winfrey said on ’60 Minutes Overtime’: “If God actually wanted me to run, wouldn’t God kind of tell me? And I haven’t heard that.”
Though she doesn’t intend to run, she offered some advice for whoever does run, saying: “I will say to whoever is going to run for office, do not give your energy to the other side. Do not spend all your time talking about your opponents. Do not give your energy to that which you really don’t believe in. Do not spend an ounce of your time on that.”
