Donald Trump scoffed at Democratic efforts to bring home Georgia, saying in an interview that he doesn’t believe his predecessor and talk show host Oprah Winfrey have the juice to get gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams elected.

‘Oprah can go and Obama can go, I don’t think it’s going to make a difference,’ he told The Washington Times on Thursday afternoon.

Trump had declined in front of cameras to disparage Winfrey, whose reputation as an actress, talk show host and businesswoman outshines his own. He tore into Abrams, instead, saying she’s not ‘qualified’ to hold higher office.

Abrams would be the first black woman elected to the governor’s mansion in Georgia if she out campaigns Republican Brian Kemp.

Vice President Mike Pence made an appearance for Kemp on Thursday, where he quipped that his own star power is as big as Democratic stars like Barack Obama, Oprah and Will Ferrell. President Trump will follow in his footsteps on Sunday.

Winfrey has been suggested as a possible 2020 challenger against the president, but made it clear when she was in Georgia on Thursday to campaign for Abrams that she was not there to lay the groundwork for a presidential bid of her own.

‘I want to make it very clear to all the press – everyone – I’m not here making some grand stand and I’m thinking about running for myself. I don’t want to run,’ she told the crowd.

The megastar insisted as she shook her head and waved her finger: ‘I’m not here to test any waters. I don’t wanna go in those waters.’

‘I’m here today because of Stacey Abrams,’ she asserted.
