Presidency: Trump Says He Would Beat Oprah Winfrey… But She Won't Run

Van Jones: If Oprah runs, 'she will destroy anybody in front of her'

A day after Twitter users urged her to run for the White House, CNN reported that two of her close friends said that "she is now actively considering the 2020 run".

"Oprah is a self-made woman, and she got where she is not by knocking people down, like Trump, but by building other people up", said Stephanie Cutter, who served as President Obama's 2012 deputy campaign manager. I want her to run for president.

"I've interviewed and portrayed people who've withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights", she said.

Asked what advice she would give a political outsider looking to run for president, press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to engage.

Trump's daughter Ivanka endorsed Oprah's message, if not a political future, in a tweet Monday: "Just saw @Oprah's empowering and inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes".

Still, while some Democrats would embrace Winfrey's outsider-celebrity status as the party's answer to Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., noted that Winfrey, like Trump, lacks any kind of experience in government.

But Trump said Tuesday he doesn't think she will ultimately put her name in the ring. "Absolutely. But in terms of where she stands on a number of positions, I would find a number of problems with that", Sanders said. "Even I am now starting to think the rules have changed about running for president".

"They're going to run her like she's this glorious woman that cares, meanwhile she's literally the wingman going out and getting tail-and I guess you're going to say it, I'm going to say it-she's well known with Weinstein to enjoy tail together".

Turning the aftermath of a Hollywood sex scandal into a cry for justice for all, her speech was a powerfully written piece of political rhetoric masterfully delivered: Winfrey, as the tribute video pointed out, is not only a television host but has on several occasions proved herself a highly effective actress in such films as The Color Purple and Beloved. "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she chose to run, and what that campaign would look like".

It is not clear whether politics ingenue and non-candidate Winfrey has what could be framed in election terms as policies.

However, the increasingly surreal edge to the debate was only exacerbated on Tuesday afternoon when White House press secretary Sarah Sanders weighed in and referred mysteriously to Winfrey's "policies". The 63-year-old, who yesterday became the first African-American woman to win the Cecil B DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, used the platform to say that discrimination based on race and gender was no longer acceptable.

A majority of voters, 52%,-said they viewed her favorably, including a whopping 72% favorable vs. 7% unfavorable rating among Democratic voters, an optimistic sign for a potential Democratic primary. "I mean, she's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman", Trump told CNN's Larry King. "It'd be a pretty good ticket".
