Oprah 2020? Trump Says He Would Win Presidential Race

Oprah Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globes has attracted much attention

Yes. We know Winfrey colludes with neoliberalism and capitalism. That's a question that should be asked about UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Sen.

President Winfrey? No way, says political prognosticator Donald Trump.

Amid the utterly ridiculous calls for #Oprah Winfrey to run for president since her inspiring anti-rape speech at the Golden Globes this past weekend, much criticism has been levelled against her and imperial feminism at large. While listening to the speech, it had reminded me of then little known Sen.

Former President Barack Obama awarded Oprah the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013.The Golden Globes audience gives Oprah a standing ovation.

REUTERS/Adrees Latif/File PhotoEntertainer and producer Oprah Winfrey arrives to introduce a clip from her Best Feature nominated film "Selma" at the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California February 21, 2015. "I refuse to let a system or a culture or a distorted view of reality tell me that I don't matter", Winfrey told her magazine readers in 2011.

The Talk Show Host Wing of the Republican Party jumped to the attack, linking Winfrey with Harvey Weinstein; taking guests and clips from her TV show out of context. You know, I did one of her last shows.

I think Winfrey brought attention to the fact that there are women that have had to endure years of abuse and assault because they've had "children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue".

3 more flu-related deaths in Hong Kong
Health professionals say one reason for the spike in cases may be that year's flu vaccine was not as effective as in other years. CBS Chicago reported on a 10-year-old boy in the area who died New Year's Eve after the flu virus attacked his heart.

In November of 2016, I invited my two daughters to watch a woman make history.

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 would always be my first choice".

However, the new poll suggests 48 per cent of likely United States voters would opt for Winfrey if she did enter the fray, compared to 38 per cent who said they would vote for Mr Trump.

Years ago Trump talked about Oprah as his potential running mate if he were to ever run, and yesterday he continued to express his admiration for her. Trump boasted that he had been a guest on one of Oprah's final shows.

Trump claims it would be "a lot of fun" to go up against Oprah in 2020.

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.

On the current trajectory, what Democrats will most need in 2020 is someone with a big enough personality that Trump can't diminish and negatively brand him or her. "If we're talking about (Kirsten) Gillibrand or (Elizabeth) Warren in 2020 (for the presidency), that's 2020". Why would Oprah, who at the moment never has to encounter anyone who isn't in awe of her, want to sign up for that? A new day is indeed on the horizon.
