Trump says he doesn't think Winfrey will run

"I like Oprah. I don't think she's going to run", Trump said.

"I know Oprah Winfrey is liberal, but that wasn't a political speech she gave the other night", Reagan told Khan.

"It's the one thing I know for sure, sure, sure is that I will never run for office", she said. The wagonload of conventional Democratic politicians already making plans to challenge President Donald Trump better hope not. "Listen, Oprah has got a very nice life".

King notes that it would take a lot for Winfrey to campaign for president. I do think that.

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. Nonetheless, the spectacle of an entertainment industry condemning Trump while having enabled sexual predators for decades is an albatross that Winfrey will have to shed if she is to make the leap from theoretical front-runner to a candidate who can actually win the presidency. "If it means looking at one of these celebrities that have a moral core, that are compassion and intelligent, I think that people should look to where they can during these very, very hard times".

King's denial of an Winfrey run muddies the waters over a quote given to the Los Angeles Times Sunday by Winfrey's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, that she would "absolutely do it".

Oprah confidante Gayle King said earlier there was no change in Oprah's past position, that she was not interested in running for president. "It's not something you can even learn - there's just an 'it, ' wouldn't you say, Donald?" While all of those politicians can come up with a scenario by which a combination of luck, skill, and circumstances could lead to their winning the Democratic nomination, none have the universal name recognition, wealth, and likeability that the daytime TV star turned media mogul possesses. In fact, she was brought into the mix nearly 20 years ago by Trump. He praised her again in 2015, calling Winfrey a friend.

"Given the choice between Oprah and our current president, I'm on the bus with Oprah traveling the country encouraging people to sign up and vote", he said.

But while her Golden Globes speech certainly struck a chord, and, as King described it, was "the right person giving the right speech at the right time", it wasn't written "as a launching pad for what she wants to do".

Spicer added that Winfrey didn't have the political experience to win an election against Trump - even though his old boss never worked in politics before becoming president, either.

As for possible running mates for Winfrey - should she run - King insists that there will never be a Winfrey-King ticket.

Late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel said Monday that he preferred Winfrey to Trump. "And I will tell you, I went to the Wharton School of Finance, and I will say I am sitting next to it".
