"I think Oprah would be great. I'd love to have Oprah," Trump told ABC News. "I think we'd win easily, actually."
Trump announced his presidential candidacy in a speech at Trump Tower in Manhattan Tuesday, sitting with ABC's George Stephanopoulos at his high-rise for his first interview as a candidate.
Trump floated Winfrey as a possible running mate in 1999, when he considered running for president as a member of the Reform Party, in an interview with Larry King.
"She's great, she's talented, she's a friend of mine," Trump told ABC's Stephanopoulos when asked if Winfrey is still on his VP shortlist.
"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?'" Trump said. "I like Oprah. I mean, is that supposed to be a bad thing? I don't think so."
