Steven Spielberg backs Oprah Winfrey to be next USA president

Donald Trump

Speculation about Winfrey as a potential Democratic Party candidate in 2020 was revived after her rousing speech on January 7 at the Golden Globes, where she was honored with a special award.

The new survey comes just days after Donald Trump said that he would beat Winfrey if she chose to run in the 2020 presidential campaign. That is how you lead.

Winfrey, Cillizza pointed out, represents the "new and unique", and her cultural influence justifies the "massive amount of attention" she's received in the wake of the Golden Globes. "Actually, I think I'd be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump". "For me, those are credentials for qualification".

Her friend and confidante Gayle King dismissed possibilities that Oprah Winfrey could change her mind after CNN reported that two of her close friends said she is thinking about running in 2020.

You may recall that in March of 2017, during a conversation on Bloomberg's The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations, Oprah told the billionaire that Donald Trump's presidential election was eye-opening for her. I mean, you thought Bernie Sanders wanted to give a lot of stuff away. "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think that she's actively considering it at this time".

"Americans" message to Oprah is, "We like you, we would vote for you over Trump, but we don't want you to run, '" said Lee Miringoff, director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, in his analysis of the poll. We asked respondents to rate eight possible Presidential candidates on a four point scale (very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable, very unfavorable) with the option of saying "don't know". Winfrey's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times that "it's up to the people" whether she will be president, adding, "She would absolutely do it".

Just days after the big awards show where numerous people who worked with Harvey Weinstein spoke out against sexual misconduct, Seal accused them all of being hypocrites and took aim at Oprah Winfrey specifically. We all know she's a very good talker.

"I do think she's intrigued by the idea, I do think that", Mr. King said. Meryl Streep, a Democrat who supported Hillary Clinton, wants Winfrey to run. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men.
