Oprah may run for president, says Irish-American mentor

On Sunday, Winfrey was awarded [VIDEO]with the Cecil B. DeMille award, recognizing her accolades of excellence in the TV and entertainment business.

President Donald Trump says he would beat Oprah Winfrey in a presidential contest, but says: "I don't think she's going to run".

"She's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman", he said at the time.

The retired Irish-American television executive whom Oprah Winfrey thanked in her Golden Globes speech for her big break on TV believes she might run for the U.S. presidency.

"I do think she's intrigued by the idea".

"She's been on the air for 35 years with all kinds of social outreach, building bridges between different ideologies and different points of view", he told the newspaper.

Winfrey has raised millions of dollars for various causes, including shelters for battered women but, like Trump when he launched his White House campaign, she has no prior experience in government.

It is safe to say that the entire country is waiting anxiously to find out Oprah's decision regarding her presidential candidacy, but there is one man who is not that interested as he's sure he has everything figured out.

Going on he said campaigning against her would be "a lot of fun". I like Oprah, ' the president said, during his bipartisan meeting with lawmakers on the topic of immigration Tuesday.

"No, I absolutely don't think that her position has changed". "I probably wouldn't do it, Oprah".

The touchstone of her speech was the #MeToo movement. "She wanted it to be a uniting speech", King said.

But when Stedman Graham, her longtime partner, was asked about the chances of Winfrey running in 2020 following the Golden Globes awards night, he told the Los Angeles Times that it is up to the people.

What she was trying to do in her speech was remind people of the need to stamp out sexual harassment, even assault, by those in power in politics, her industry and elsewhere. You tweeted that you're glad people are finally taking her seriously as a presidential candidate for the Democrats. Why?

If Oprah runs, gets elected, and then makes even one tiny mistake, or falls even slightly short of the ridiculous standard that has been set - she will fall from the pedestal she's been pushed on to - she's been set up to fail.

"I'm telling you his interpretation of the question was. he thought the reporter was saying would she be a good president", King said. I mean, if she'd ever do it.

"When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution", a text overlay on top of the photographs reads.

"It was the right person giving the right speech at the right time", King said.
