In an upcoming book, it is revealed that media mogul Oprah Winfrey proposed a joint presidential run with Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) in 2020 to prevent President Trump’s re-election.
The book, “Romney: A Reckoning” by McKay Coppins, is based on extensive interviews with Romney and access to his personal diaries and journals.
