Trump weighs-in on Oprah's potential presidential run

Oprah Winfrey poses backstage with her Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 75th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills, California, on January 7.

However, when asked directly whether she has any plans to campaign for the top job yesterday, Oprah responded: "I don't - I don't", Bloomberg reports.

By the time the late-night TV shows rolled around, it had been a discussion for many hours.

"I think one of the arguments for Oprah is 45", Pelosi said, referring to Trump in shorthand for the 45th president. "Whatever you do, though, Oprah, don't use emails!"

The possibility of a Winfrey candidacy has energized many Democrats, who view her as the flawless foil to Trump. "I applaud her for what she has done in her life". They're the complete opposite. I'm not sure if the USA is ready for a successful, popular TV personality and business owner to hold such high office. It was so great.

This year's Golden Globes ceremony was not left wanting for powerful statements.

"People were immediately calling that speech 'presidential.' And a year ago, I would have agreed".

The rumour mill then went into overdrive when CNN reported that sources close to the 63-year-old said she is "actively thinking" about challenging Trump.

"I am sure of one thing", Tyler Jones, a South Carolina Democratic strategist and founder of SPEAK Strategic, told Newsweek in an email on Monday. I'd love to have Oprah.

Oprah had to be the person to make this speech. For instance, Donald Trump does. She supported both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and in the 2016 election drama, Donald Trump had suggested she ought to be his running mate - a suggestion she did not appear to take seriously. Oprah should not be the next president. "Thank you Oprah for nailing it once again".

"Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast", the network said. "I do think that".

"Everybody's talking about the big speech Oprah made".

Meryl Streep was quoted as telling the Washington Post that she wanted Winfrey to run for president. "It'll be weird at her State of the Union when Congress keeps checking under their seats for a free vehicle". The television star never let you down, voted for a bill you didn't like and never accepted a compromise that you find disappointing. 'You get health insurance! And you get a vehicle! "You won't get deported!'"
