Donald Trump was a guest on “Larry King Live” nearly two decades ago, announcing the formation of an exploratory committee to possibly seek the candidacy of the Reform Party. (positions under link.)
King asked, “Do have a vice presidential candidate in mind?” Without much hesitation, Trump replied: “I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice.”
“I think she’s really a great woman. A terrific woman, She’s somebody that’s really special. If she’d do it, she’d be fantastic. She’s popular, she’s brilliant, she’s wonderful woman. If she’d do it….she’s a very exceptional woman,” Trump gushed.
