A letter Oprah Winfrey wrote to former President Donald Trump revealed that she thought they would make quite the “team” as running mates.
Trump has promised to spill the tea on his correspondence with celebrities, royals, and politicians, in his upcoming book “Letters to Trump.”
The book, which releases in spring, will feature over 150 letters the 45th president has hand picked from the thousands he has gathered over forty-plus years of collecting documents.
“What do presidents, royals, celebrities, and business titans have in common? They all love Donald Trump. Long before entering politics, Donald Trump lived an extraordinary life,” his publisher said in a statement.
“No book highlights his iconic relationships like ‘Letters to Trump,’ and we are thrilled to be able to share it with our readers.”
Letters from the likes of Michael Jackson, Queen Elizabeth II, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Kim Jong-un, Princess Diana, and more will each include an accompanying photo and commentary by Trump, according to Axios.
Winning Team Publishing, which was co-founded by Donald Trump Jr., teased a letter from Oprah Winfrey.
The 2000 era note from the TV mogul indicated that there was once a time she considered the former president to be an ideal running mate.
In 1999, Trump told Larry King that the former host of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” would be his number one choice as a running mate if he ever entered politics.
“Oprah. I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice,” he remarked.
“If she’d do it, she’d be fantastic. I mean, she’s popular, she’s brilliant, she’s a wonderful woman.”
“I mean, if she would ever do it. I don’t know that she would ever do it,” he gushed.
“She’s got, you know. She would be sort of like me.”
Trump doubled down in his 2000 book, “The America We Deserve,” when he wrote that “political elites chortled” when he announced his “first choice for vice president” to King.
“They just don’t understand how many Americans respect and admire Oprah for her intelligence and caring,” he wrote.
“She has provided inspiration for millions of women to improve their lives, go back to school, learn to read, and take responsibility for themselves. If I can’t get Oprah, I’d like someone like her.”
In response to the shout out, Oprah sent a note that his comments made her “a little weepy.”
“It’s one thing to try and live a life of integrity — still another to have people like yourself notice,” she wrote on personalized stationary.
“Too bad we’re not running for office,” she concluded. “What a team!”
In his first interview after announcing his candidacy, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked if Oprah was still on Trump’s shortlist.
“She’s great, she’s talented, she’s a friend of mine,” he remarked. “She’s a good person.”
“I’ve been on her show. In fact, I was on her show her last week, she said, ‘Could I be on her show with the whole family?'” he continued.
“I like Oprah. I mean, is that supposed to be a bad thing? I don’t think so.”
Trump noted in his new book that though he still believes Winfrey is “amazing,” once he declared as a Republican, their relationship was over.
“Sadly, once I announced for President, she never spoke to me again,” he wrote.
“Letters To Trump” hits stores on April 25 for $99. An addition signed by the former president will cost $399.
