Oprah for president? Twitter fans make the case

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE said Tuesday he could beat entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey in the 2020 presidential race, but doesn't think she'll make a run for the White House. Trevor Noah can see it.

In accepting an award for lifetime achievement, Oprah Winfrey did more than offer an uplifting speech geared toward the Hollywood elite gathered for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Winfrey, who along with most of the show's other attendees donned a black gown to show support for victims of sexual misconduct, was the first black woman to receive the annual Cecil B. De Mille award, joining the likes of Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand and Sophia Loren.

"Look, it's ridiculous - and I get that", Barack Obama's 2012 Iowa campaign director Brad Anderson said.

Winfrey used her speech to praise women who have shared their stories of sexual harassment and abuse, and to declare that "a new day is on the horizon" for girls and women. They're the complete opposite.

Following the evening's ceremony and Oprah's speech, Ivanka tweeted on Monday night that she "Just saw @Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes". In fact, two of Oprah's close friends said that she's thinking about running in 2020.

Team Trump said, 'We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else.' Preferably anybody else. I'm not sure if the USA is ready for a successful, popular TV personality and business owner to hold such high office.

"I like Oprah", he told ABC News in June 2015. "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think that she's actively considering it".

The then governor of IL briefly considered Winfrey to replace Obama in the Senate, but she did not voice interest.

"Reporters asked the White House today for their response to a potential Oprah candidacy". The television star never let you down, voted for a bill you didn't like and never accepted a compromise that you find disappointing. I mean, you thought Bernie Sanders wanted to give a lot of stuff away.

Winfrey, 63, however, is not running - at least, officially.

Oprah Winfrey delivered a rallying cry to women and hope for "a new day" when receiving the Cecile B. DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globes.
