Donald Trump and Oprah Winfrey

"I know her very well", Trump said at the White House as he met with lawmakers to discuss immigration. "I like Oprah", he added.

"I don't think she's going to run, " he added. Ivanka caught a lot of flak on Twitter for her vague sentiment of solidarity with women while she continues to serve in the administration of her father, who has multiple accusations of sexual harrassment against him and spoke on audio tape about groping women without their consent.

And after some pushing and prodding from her co-anchors, King said she agreed. And then Oprah's longtime partner Steadman Graham went and said "she would absolutely do it" in reference to a run at the White House in 2020, and it was off to the races. She had Donald Trump - this was before politics - her last week, and she had Donald Trump and my family.

If Winfrey did run, it would be an interesting matchup, considering her opponent is such a huge fan of hers.

"Whether she likes it or not, you are attached, you are an entity, you're no longer one person", McCain scolded.

After a day of commentary, the ladies of The View unsurprisingly had a lot to say about the matter on Tuesday's show. Trump answered the question in his characteristically narcissistic manner, immediately responding "yeah I'll beat Oprah" with his arms crossed and nary a concern on his face.

Syrian military accuses Israel of targeting outposts near Damascus
The army said that it "hit" an Israeli aircraft and intercepted some rockets fired from Israeli territory. The statement also claimed that one of the planes was hit by Syria's air defenses system.

And Oprah also won praise from tablemates Eva Longoria and Keith Urban.

King, a CBS host, says that Winfrey is "intrigued by the idea" of a presidential bid in 2020, but that after a long conversation with her friend the night before, she doesn't see it happening.

"Well, I really haven't gotten quite there yet".

Speculation about Winfrey's own political ambitions are mounting after she delivered a powerful speech at the Golden Globe awards on Sunday night, weaving stories of racial and gender injustice into a hopeful narrative that many argued read like a political stump speech.

Some political operatives think she has what it takes to be a viable presidential contender.

On the show Tuesday morning, King said she "was up talking to [Oprah] very late last night". "4 years ago she strongly supported Obama-now she is silent".
