Oprah Might Finally 'Have a Lot More Respect' for Donald Trump

Most Americans'don't want Oprah to run for president

Donald Trump has said he is confident he would beat Oprah Winfrey in a presidential election.

Trump appeared on Winfrey's long-running talk show in 1988 and again with his family in 2011, during her final season.

He added: 'Oprah would be a lot of fun.

"An overwhelmingly high percentage of people in the very room that celebrated Oprah Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globe Awards - many of those people knew about the #MeToo moments far prior to the #MeToo movement and were absolutely silent about it", says Hamilton.

CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter is in love with the idea of Oprah Winfrey running for president in 2020.

Naturally, Twitter had quite a bit to say about Trump's confident stance.

"It's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice", she said.

In her speech, Winfrey drew a parallel between the society Taylor lived in with society today, using her story as an example of why change is necessary.

Trump's comments come as his daughter was trolled by Hollywood stars for Tweeting her support for the #TimesUp campaign and Oprah's speech. You know, I did one of her last shows.

Sen. Karl Allen, a Greenville attorney, said "having experienced Donald Trump, she would be a breath of fresh air, a bright ray of sunshine".

Reports on Winfrey's widely discussed speech at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards ceremony have speculated that the former queen of daytime TV may be positioning herself for a political campaign. The first time was in 1988.

No, she hasn't. In fact, as recently as September and October 2017, Oprah dismissed similar speculations while saying Trump's win made her rethink the requirements of the office, reported The Associated Press.

However, her remarks about being raised in poverty, empowerment of women and support for the press (under constant criticism by Trump), quickly prompted even some conservative political figures to speak positively of her as a potential candidate.

Not surprisingly, 52% of women prefer Winfrey; 43% of men favor Trump. But beyond her views on women's empowerment, critics have cautioned that advocating for her candidacy is premature, considering how little we know about her policy positions.

She gives power to her entire audience by empowering each and every individual.

On the heels of that presidential optimism, comes a Rasmussen poll which suggests that the president's air of confidence might be misplaced.
