Ivanka Trump mocked after praising 'inspiring' Oprah Winfrey speech

Oprah Winfrey accepts the Cecil B. De Mille Award at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills Calif. on Sunday Jan. 7 2018

Gayle King: Oprah isn't running for president, except if she is

U.S. President Winfrey? No way, says political prognosticator Donald Trump.

Trump said "Oprah will be lots of fun", adding that he didn't think she would actually run. "I know her very well", he told reporters on Tuesday.

Winfrey fueled speculation that she could look to mount a campaign in a rousing, almost 10-minute speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

That's not to say Oprah didn't give a great speech, because she did, and speech-making is indeed part of running for and serving as president. "Her star appeal, or uber appeal, is at such a high level that initially everyone will love her. But I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", King said.

"I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon", Winfrey said.

Trump's victory proved lack of political experience is no longer a nonstarter, and Winfrey will likely not be the last political novice rumored to seek the White House in 2020.

The sixth round of NAFTA negotiations are slated to begin January 23 in Montreal. "A US withdrawal from NAFTA would cost the USA pork industry $1.5 billion".

"She stole the show with the nine-minute speech upon receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award for achievement and lit up Twitter with a surge of tweets carrying "#Oprahforpresident" and "#Oprah2020". "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run". "I'm sure Oprah is well aware of that". They reminded her that more than a dozen women have accused President Trump of sexual harassment and misconduct dating back decades, and that Trump was caught on tape bragging about grabbing women's genitals.

"That said, 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. While he supports the idea of Winfrey running, it would also punctuate how Trump's candidacy has altered political norms. "She wanted it to be a uniting speech", King said.

Winfrey has raised millions of dollars for various causes, including shelters for battered women but, like Trump when he launched his White House campaign, she has no prior experience in government.

"She's certainly a bigger celebrity than Trump ever was, especially in terms of connecting with her audience".

"I've got a strong feeling this woman should be the next President of the United States of America". She used the show's success to build a media empire encompassing movie production, magazines, cable TV, and satellite radio, becoming one of the world's richest women.
