Trump mocks Oprah Winfrey for 60 Minutes segment

Trump mocks Oprah Winfrey

President Donald Trump on Sunday mocked Oprah Winfrey for her performance on CBS' "60 MInutes."

"Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes," he tweeted Sunday night.
