In a stunning reminder of how little President Trump is regarded inside his own party, two prominent Republicans have said they would support and assist a potential challenger from outside the party: Oprah Winfrey.
Former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele and retiring Senator Orrin Hatch have both said that they would support Oprah if she launches a campaign for the presidency.
Both men offered Oprah advice on how to approach a campaign and how to prepare for it and they both agreed she would be a formidable opponent with a strong chance of winning.
Oprah is a “winner,” according to Hatch. “I’d like to sit down with her and help her if I could.”
“You’re ready to cross the aisle already?” the interviewer asked.
“You bet,” Hatch replied.
Asked if he would work for Oprah if she launched a campaign, Steele confirmed he isn’t a Trump supporter and simply said, “Call me.”
Steele is the only African-American to lead the Republican Party.
