Oprah in 2020? Allies send mixed messages on her future

Oprah Winfrey

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he could beat Oprah Winfrey in a presidential race, while one of Winfrey's closest friends said the media mogul and actress was "intrigued" by the possibility of running but was not considering it now. "I also know that after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind".

Oprah has raised millions of dollars for various causes, including shelters for battered women but, like Mr Trump when he launched his White House campaign, she has no prior experience in government. You know, I did one of her last shows.

"I like Oprah but I don't think she's going to run".

And while Winfrey's partner, Stedman Graham, was initially quoted as saying that she "absolutely" would run, he has since said his remarks were taken out of context and that he only meant to convey that she would "absolutely" make a great president if she did run.

Gayle King, who is close friends with Winfrey, said on "CBS This Morning" earlier Tuesday that Winfrey finds the idea "intriguing" but added that she doesn't believe Winfrey is actually considering it right now.

Trump had once cited Winfrey as his choice for a running mate when he was toying with running for the Reform Party presidential nomination for the 2000 election. But it was her support of women calling out sexual harassment that fueled talk among Democrats in states where presidential runs usually begin, Iowa and New Hampshire. He has also been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct, though he has vehemently denied the allegations. She really did want to say, 'Enough already, ' and I think she delivered on all that in a very eloquent way. "Really?", and bemoaned the "impossibly boring" current crop of major political figures, making people more likely to vote for celebrities like Mr Trump or Oprah.

Critics said Ms Trump's support for the president was incompatible with her endorsement of Ms Winfrey's Time's Up campaign.

Winfrey, who spent the bulk of her career as a talk show host, proclaimed, 'a new day is on the horizon'.

"It was the right person giving the right speech at the right time", she said. Will she run for president?
