Oprah in 2020? Friends send mixed messages on her future

Trump: I'd 'beat Oprah' in 2020 presidential match-up

And her longtime boyfriend Stedman Graham told reporters after the gala that Oprah would challenge President Donald Trump if it was the will of the people.

Oprah was capitulated into the political spotlight Sunday as she accepted a lifetime achievement honor at the Golden Globe Awards and made an impassioned speech about female empowerment in the wake of rampant sexual abuse against women in Hollywood and the nation. "Oprah would be a lot of fun", he said.

"I think Oprah's an icon in this country and frankly throughout the world, and she's got a huge following that's really not political and she clearly speaks very powerfully to women at this point in our political discourse and our society".

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", Trump said.

Speculation surrounding a possible 2020 bid by Winfrey exploded following the mogul's headline-grabbing remarks at the Golden Globes Sunday night. She had Donald Trump - this was before politics - her last week, and she had Donald Trump and my family.

Trump himself has lavished praise on Winfrey over the years, including in 2015, when he said that he would consider her as a running mate on his Republican ticket. "I believe that she could make a difference in this country.For the first time, I am even like, 'Are you sure, are you sure?' - which only irritates her".

Trump's kind words for Oprah are not new. Let's all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP! Nonetheless, the spectacle of an entertainment industry condemning Trump while having enabled sexual predators for decades is an albatross that Winfrey will have to shed if she is to make the leap from theoretical front-runner to a candidate who can actually win the presidency. Over 30 years, she became the face of television talk shows, starred and produced feature films, and began her own network. "I'd love to have Oprah". I will quit my job and campaign for her. I do think that.

Late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel said Monday that he preferred Winfrey to Trump.

Winfrey's presidential history also extends to the previous administration.

It's true that if she enters the political arena, Winfrey's status as a universally beloved figure will be revoked. "I will do whatever it takes because I am so concerned about what's happening, '" she discloses. That could soften what Palmieri describes as an enduring resistance among some voters to women with political ambition. If Oprah wants to run - and sources supposedly close to her claim she is interested - she must be acknowledged as the potential front-runner in a race where the only seemingly sure things are recycled and exhausted candidates of the past, such as Biden or Sanders.
