Trump thinks Oprah won't run, says he'd defeat her anyway

Oprah's unlikely to run for president, but Stedman Graham just gave us a little hope Van Jones: If Oprah runs, 'she will destroy anybody in front of her'

Again, this is another sign that Jones, who used to be a general opponent of everything and anything attached to either the government or conventional thought, has become less a catchall conspiracist than a freelance advocate for President Donald Trump (albeit a particularly unhinged one).

Trump, a billionaire TV star whose ascent to the presidency was fueled by name recognition, sheer wattage and personality, has long praised Winfrey, who shares numerous same qualities.

"Oprah would be a lot of fun", Trump added at a bipartisan meeting on immigration.

King said: "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way".

"I do think she's intrigued by the idea", King said Tuesday morning. "She's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman".

However, this was not enough to dampen the excitement of the people. In a 1999 interview, he praised her as a strong choice for vice president.

She was "raped and left blindfolded by the side of the road, coming home from church", Winfrey told the audience.

That's what many people have decided on Twitter anyway, and Winfrey's longtime partner Stedman Graham played along with their hopes. "If she decides to do this, it is going to be one of the most extraordinary runs in American history". "I don't think at this point she is actually considering it".

Turning the aftermath of a Hollywood sex scandal into a cry for justice for all, her speech was a powerfully written piece of political rhetoric masterfully delivered: Winfrey, as the tribute video pointed out, is not only a television host but has on several occasions proved herself a highly effective actress in such films as The Color Purple and Beloved. What's missing? Experience in government, a demonstrated grasp of public policy, political skills, including the ability to negotiate and compromise across partisan and worldwide lines, and, most of all, a desire to serve.

A March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac University gave Winfrey a 52% favourable rating compared to Trump's then 41% job approval rating. While Hillary Clinton had trouble getting key demographics such as white women to vote for her in 2016, Jones doesn't think that gaining broad support would be a problem for Winfrey since she has longstanding fans across many demographics.

Raised in Nashville, Milwaukee and MS, 63-year-old Winfrey was raped and sexually abused as a child and became pregnant aged 14 but miscarried the baby.

Oprah Winfrey holds the 2018 Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award in the press room during the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men", she said to a standing ovation. "But I don't know a lot about politics".
