Donald Trump says he would 'beat Oprah' in presidency battle

The president added that he liked her, "but I don't think she's going to run".

Winfrey, 63, however, is not running - at least, officially.

"So when I made a decision to talk with you, people around me were like, 'What's happened to you?'" she continued. "I don't think at this point she is actually considering it".

It often takes an Oprah Winfrey, someone undisputedly at the top of the game, to drop the anvil. Step back for a moment and consider where we've come: If I'd told you five years ago that the 2020 presidential race would be Oprah versus The Donald, you'd have insisted I seek professional help. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men, but their time is up.


Ms Winfrey is one of the most famous women in the United States, a self-made tycoon born into poverty who was raised by a single mother - a story that resonates with many Americans.

Comedian Sarah Silverman was one of many tipping the U.S. celebrity to run for president, writing: "Oprah/Michelle 2020".

Even she is facing criticism, however, from those who haven't paid any attention to her history of speaking out about abuse or who have failed to learn the lesson we've all been hearing. She was cast as Sofia Johnson in the Steven Spielberg-directed film, which saw her nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar in 1986. It would require almost three years of grinding hard work - and in the end she might win, which would mean four more years of oppressive labor and crushing responsibility.

"I'll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun".


Joan Grande, the mother of singer Ariana Grande whose concert in Manchester previous year was the scene of a terror attack, said Winfrey made her proud to be a woman. Actor Natasha Rothwell also weighed in, reminding Ivanka of the accusations against her dad, as did author Michael Wolff, who said, "Who does she think her father is?" "I also know that after years of watching the Oprah show, you also always have the right to change your mind". Magnificent speech, magnificent career, magnificent woman!

Weight Watchers, which was hammered by free fitness apps and years of subscriber losses, has mounted a comeback since Winfrey bought a stake, joined the board and agreed to pitch the brand in 2015.

The prospect of a Winfrey candidacy was met with enthusiasm among a number of Democrats, who see her as an inspirational response to the Trump presidency.
