"We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters aboard Air Force One Monday.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Tuesday that if Winfrey — like candidate Trump, a Washington outsider with no prior political experience — were to run, she’d have to lay out her policy positions, and that the Trump administration would be likely to oppose many of them.
“Is she a successful individual? Absolutely. In terms of where she stands, I’d find a lot of problems with that,” Sanders said.
