Trump says he would beat Oprah Winfrey in presidential race

If Oprah Winfrey decides to let Hollywood liberals' ecstatic reaction to her awards-show speech become the starting point for a presidential run, she would immediately vault to the top of a field that is now composed of a mix of grizzled political veterans (Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren) and a bunch of untested but hopeful newcomers to the national stage (Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker).

Trump also used her platform to highlight the Time's Up movement and called for unity. He says, "Oprah would be a lot of fun".

"She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", King said, noting that she had spoken to Winfrey at length the night before.

"I know Oprah Winfrey is liberal, but that wasn't a political speech she gave the other night", Reagan told Khan.

"I still feel Donald Trump wins in 2020, because there's really no candidate from the Democrat Party to, in fact, run against him, and certainly no issue at all that they can bring to the table". It was very nice...

Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation's highest office, though she noted that Trump's victory made her rethink the requirements of the office. "I don't think at this point she's actually considering it".

King, a CBS host, says that Winfrey is "intrigued by the idea" of a presidential bid in 2020, but that after a long conversation with her friend the night before, she doesn't see it happening.

Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is downplaying any suggestion that Winfrey might run for president. I do think that.

This isn't the first time Winfrey's name has been tossed into the political ring.

"You just have to convince her", she continues. "If it means looking at one of these celebrities that have a moral core, that are compassion and intelligent, I think that people should look to where they can during these very, very hard times". In a 1999 interview, he praised her as a strong choice for vice president. I will quit my job and campaign for her.

Ahead of taking the Golden Globes stage, Winfrey read her speech to King, who knew that it was "going to be killer".

Oprah Winfrey for President? I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon.

Some political operatives think she has what it takes to be a viable presidential contender.

After two days of heightened speculation, Mr Trump said he did not think she would end up running but thought he could defeat her if she did.
