White House Would 'Welcome' 2020 Oprah Challenge

White House Would 'Welcome' 2020 Oprah Challengeā€

But their time is up. The life of a billionaire media mogul is much more pleasant than the life of a president.

In receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Winfrey spoke of her humble upbringing and her childhood respect for civil rights heroes. But Trump believes that she is unlikely to run. "She (Winfrey) launched a rocket".

Now, the Trump administration has weighed in on the matter.

CNN reported on Monday that Winfrey is "actively considering" a White House bid in 2020.

Hollywood Reporter critic Daniel Fienberg noted the similarity between Winfrey and President Donald Trump. At this point, who's to say that Winfrey couldn't run? Oprah would be a lot of fun.

She closed her speech with a call for unity, "I want all the girls watching to know a new day is on the horizon".

However, Oprah herself has said that she is not interested in running for the seat.

Last fall Winfrey dismissed the notion of running for president.

"It's up to the people", Stedman Graham was quoted as telling the Los Angeles Times. "I mean, she's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman". "The thought of Oprah isn't as absurd as it might have been two years ago". - I thought it sounded nearly like a campaign speech.

President Donald Trump's biggest accomplishment may have been to make the political waters safe for celebrities with 100-percent name recognition and zero government experience. "And I now have had the privilege of working with him on some of the most complex diplomatic challenges imaginable", the statement says.

But if politics is a money game, then the odds are still long.

"She could hold a front against hatred in this country".

Streep, however, gave a ringing endorsement when she was asked about Oprah's speech by The Washington Post's Steven Zeitchik. "I don't think she had any intention (of declaring)". In a 1999 interview, he praised her as a strong choice for vice president. "She runs a major company", the actress continued.

Taylor was an African American woman from Abbeville, Alabama who was abducted and raped on her way home from a church in 1944 by six armed white men when she was 24 years old. Trump, of course, was a businessman-turned-reality-television-star before his extraordinary political rise. Winfrey is a longtime ally of Barack Obama. "But he is not a politician and that confuses his critics". After Trump, we have to be skeptical of all political novices.
