President Donald Trump says he would beat Oprah Winfrey in a presidential contest, but says: "I don't think she's going to run."

"I'll beat Oprah," he told reporters at the White House. "Oprah will be a lot of fun."

Trump spoke Tuesday at the White House as he met with lawmakers on immigration, saying he knows her well and doesn't think she'll run.

The president added that he appeared on one of her final shows and said he knows her "very well."

"I like Oprah. I don't think she's going to run," Trump added.

Winfrey gave an impassioned speech Sunday night at the Golden Globes, which has sparked talk about whether she might run for president.

Former Trump White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who was the public face of some of the Trump administration's early missteps last year, said on the "Good Morning Britain" show that Winfrey lacks "political infrastructure" and would have a hard time adjusting to the White House.

Winfrey gained national fame with her TV talk show, which often focused on self-improvement and touched on previously taboo subjects like incest, rape, eating disorders, and depression. She used the show's success to build a media empire encompassing movie production, magazines, cable TV, and satellite radio, becoming one of the world's richest women.

Winfrey also branched out into acting. She is credited with roles in nearly 30 movie and TV productions, including a role in director Steven Spielberg's "The Color Purple" that earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress.
