Oprah Winfrey 'intrigued' by USA presidential run: friend Gayle King

Oprah Winfrey 'intrigued' by USA presidential run: friend Gayle King

Numerous tweets acknowledged Winfrey would be the second consecutive celebrity to reach the White House, but thats where the comparison to her and Donald Trump ended.

Media magnate Oprah Winfrey is "intrigued" by the possibility of running for the USA presidency in 2020 but is not considering it now, a close friend said on Tuesday after Winfrey's speech at a Hollywood awards show thrust her name into the political arena.

"He later added: "I think if an Oprah Winfrey jumped in, I think it would be on the other side of the political aisle, that would be the test of that".

Spicer said: "She doesn't have the political infrastructure and we've seen this before in our history where people who have tried to pop in that are not in politics who have had a hard time adjusting...". "That's how he interpreted the question, because this is the thing". It's up to the people.

Winfrey gave an impassioned speech Sunday night at the Golden Globes, which has sparked talk about whether she might run for president. Still, she denied having any presidential ambitions while speaking with a Bloomberg News reporter backstage at the awards show.

"Oprah will be a lot of fun", Trump said Tuesday, noting that he knows Winfrey "very well" and appeared with his family on one of the final episodes of "The Oprah Winfrey Show".

"She was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for her contributions to the entertainment industry and used her time onstage to address the "#MeToo" movement.

"It was the right person giving the right speech at the right time", she said. "She wanted that moment to be more than women wearing black dresses of solidarity".

"I do think she's intrigued by the idea, I do think that", King said.

Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is downplaying any suggestion that Winfrey might run for president.
