Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey Draws US Presidential Interest

When asked if Winfrey had changed the mindset revealed by previous statements and was now entertaining a 2020 presidential run, King said: "I absolutely don't think her position has changed".

As she received a lifetime achievement award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the actress and TV star spoke of her humble upbringing and her childhood respect for civil rights heroes.

Oprah has previously said she would never run for public office and has not commented on the recent speculation about a presidential tilt. He jokingly forbade Winfrey from considering the presidency.

So I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon!

If the speculation is wishful thinking, Winfrey's fame and wealth, extraordinary personal story overcoming poverty, child sexual abuse and pregnancy to build a $2.8 billion fortune and Oscar-nominated acting career, would stack up nicely in her favor. "I applaud her for what she has done in her life".

Holding court in the VIP row of tables up front, Winfrey sat with Gayle King and Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay, their seats turned toward the stage, where word of the internet campaign reached her. "We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else", Hogan Gidley told reporters on Air Force One during a flight to Nashville on Monday.

The question isn't will Oprah Winfrey run for president, but when.

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men", she said to a standing ovation.

With nearly three years to run, there is still all to play for in the 2020 presidential election. She was also criticized for serving as a surrogate for him.

And I have tried many, many, many times to explain what a moment like that means to a little girl, a kid watching from the cheap seats as my mom came through the door, bone exhausted from cleaning other people's houses.

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", he answered. Yes it is. May we all greet it with hope, resolve and faith. Actor Natasha Rothwell also weighed in, reminding Ivanka of the accusations against her dad, as did author Michael Wolff, who said, "Who does she think her father is?"

Singer and producer Brad Walsh wrote: "She is quite literally the Antitrump". However, the Internet hasn't exactly taken kindly to her message with many wondering if she remembered what her father, Donald Trump stands accused of.
