Winfrey's Golden Globes speech sparks talk of 2020 presidential campaign

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

"I want her to run for president", famed actress Meryl Streep told The Washington Post from the ballroom at the end of the awards show.

Trump appeared on Winfrey's long-running talk show in 1988 and again with his family in 2011, during her final season.

However, when asked directly whether she has any plans to campaign for the top job yesterday, Oprah responded: "I don't - I don't", Bloomberg reports.

NBC's tweet drew criticism from some prominent conservatives, including Donald Trump Jr., who called it another example of media bias against his father, President Donald Trump. The POTUS looked confident that he would "beat Oprah".

On Tuesday, King suggested that her best friend's viewpoint remained unchanged. "It would be a pretty good ticket".

Trump, however, added that he felt Winfrey wasn't likely to enter the race.

"I did not think they would be talking about it in presidential terms", King said on CBS This Morning of Oprah's speech, as People notes.

In some ways, a Winfrey candidacy isn't that far fetched at a time in which a reality show star worked his way into the White House, shattering numerous norms along the way.

There was a huge political divide over an Oprah run, with 91% of Democrats going with Oprah and 85% of Republicans going with Trump.

She continued, "I think that has been one of my greatest wisdom-teachings, is to assess from people's behavior - their actions not just towards me, but towards other people - who they are and how they behave..."

The press secretary added: "Is she a successful individual?"

Even if Winfrey isn't a politician by trade, her "Golden Globes speech was, without question, a first step down a political path", Cillizza wrote in a column for CNN.com. "And if I did decide to do it, I would say I'd have a hell of a chance of winning".

Winfrey's Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech was a full-throated tribute to the women and men who support the #MeToo Movement.

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

"I don't think she's going to run".

"Which brings me to this: What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have".

President Donald Trump previously picked Oprah as a potential running mate. "I do think this, though".
