Trump Says Beating Oprah At The 2020 Election “Would Be A Lot Of Fun”

He added: 'Oprah would be a lot of fun.

I think his rhetoric, especially when engaging in social media dialogue with North Korea, is nearly now beyond a joke, and you get the real sense of feeling that the honeymoon is over.

Asked what advice she would give a political outsider looking to run for president, press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to engage.

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 USA presidency. "I don't think she's going to run". I did one of her last shows.

Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump praised Winfrey for supporting the #MeToo movement in a tweet Monday night but soon came under scathing criticism.

Winfrey has not yet openly commented about a presidential run. But the latter tossed her support to Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton by responding, "I'm with her".

Winfrey confidante Gayle King, however said on Tuesday after Winfrey's speech at a Hollywood awards show thrust her name into the political arena that she was not considering it now.

Although she has previously said she has no plans to run for president, sources close to her told CNN she is "actively considering" a campaign in the wake of the Golden Globes.

Winfrey received a roof-rattling, rousing ovation for her words at the Globes: "For too long, women haven't been heard or believed if they dared speak the truth to the power of those men".

"It's up to the people", Graham told the Los Angeles Times. "She would absolutely do it".

No clear Democratic front-runner has emerged to challenge Trump in 2020, with the immediate political focus in the USA on November's congressional elections, when the 435-member House of Representatives will be up for election, along with a third of the 100-member Senate.

However, if Winfrey does decide to run for president, she already has a wealth of people willing to help her with her campaign.

King suggested, however, that the actress was "intrigued" by the idea of running.

"The public needs to be assured that the news they get is as objective as humanly possible", Feldstein said. "That's how he interpreted the question", King said. "He would never do that". She knew that she met the moment, but the reaction to the speech has been sort of overwhelming to her.

"Do you think I am going to be that successful?"

"So I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon", Winfrey said. Within months she turned the show around from the lowest- to highest-rated programme. Good for her for focusing on that. To all the powerful men out I say your times up. By the end of it, most, if not, all of the attendees of the awards ceremony were on their feet. "And we've seen this before in our history - where people who have tried to pop in who are not in politics and have had a hard time adjusting".
