Steven Spielberg backs Oprah Winfrey to be next United States president

Actress and TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey seen here posing with the Cecil B De Mille Award during the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday delivered a rousing speech that has Democrats talking about her running for president in 2020

Speculation that Winfrey could run for the White House in 2020 has swirled since her rousing speech at the Golden Globe Awards, praising women who have spoken up against sexual violence and promising "a new day".

Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation's highest office, though she noted that Trump's victory made her rethink the requirements of the office.

In her speech, Winfrey told the story of Abbeville, Ala. -native Recy Taylor, a black civil rights activist who died late last month just days before her 98th birthday.

Oprah Winfrey is a media mogul who is starting to act like a politician.

In fact, Trump knows her so well he named Oprah as his ideal running partner back in 1999 on Larry King Live.

King also explained that Graham had misheard the question presented to him by the Los Angeles Times, thinking the reporter had asked "would she make a good president".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also had her take an an Oprah run.

And ironically, Trump previously said if he were to run for President that he would have chosen Oprah as his running mate.


"She is crackerjack on the money on women's issues, and I call her the ambassador of empathy".

"It's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice", she said.

"I don't think she's going to run". But the fervor for an Oprah presidential run surpasses all reason.

"I like Oprah", he said.

However, when Oprah took to the stage to accept her Cecil B. DeMille Award, her speech brought the audience to silence, then to their feet and to tears.

The "Kiss From a Rose" singer seemed to be responding to the near-universal acclaim Oprah's Golden Globes speech received on Sunday.

"It's clear you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States", she said.

"I don't think she is actively considering it, I don't think she is actively considering it at this time", King said. "I mean, I have a lot of things going, she's got a lot of things going". I think we'd win easily, actually. "At the same time, politics is ridiculous right now".
