Donald Trump Jr. has fought back at reports swirling around Oprah’s possible run for presidency in the next election.

Trump’s condemnation stems from a since-deleted tweet sent out by NBC, which showcased a photo a jol Oprah from the night with a caption that read: “Nothing but respect for OUR future president. #GoldenGlobes.”
Leave it to Trump’s most vocal family member to immediately take fence to an otherwise innocent tweet, and continue his father’s fight against the mainstream media.
However, while NBC may have tweeted about Oprah’s potential presidency run, CNN has links to sources close to the media mogul who can absolutely confirm that she is seriously considering stepping into the race as a candidate in the 2020 election.
