Trump says he doesn't think Winfrey will run

He added: 'Oprah would be a lot of fun. "I don't think she's going to run". Although nothing has been officially confirmed on Winfrey's side, only time will tell if she indeed has any political intentions. "I like Oprah", the president told reporters at the White House.

Explaining his viewpoint, Trump said "I know her very well". I did one of her last shows. I mean, she's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman'.

Will she run for president in 2020? "Is she a successful individual?"

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.

However, the new poll suggests 48 per cent of likely United States voters would opt for Ms Winfrey if she did enter the fray, compared to 38 per cent who said they would vote for Mr Trump.

Winfrey's rousing nine-minute speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday night left many wondering if the longtime TV host has presidential ambitions.

"The minute she finished that speech at the Golden Globes, I started calling her friends, her confidants, her business associates", Stelter said. "Let's all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP #UNITED", she said in a reference to the campaign to end sexual harassment. "For the first time, I am even like, 'Are you sure, are you sure?' - which only irritates her".

"People need to have hope", said Ray Buckley, chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, who encouraged the idea of an Oprah run. 'She would absolutely do it'.

On Tuesday, King suggested that her best friend's viewpoint remained unchanged. I do think she was intrigued by the idea. In 1999, he said Oprah would be a good running mate and also tweeted in 2012 that he adores her.

The first daughter was also lambasted on Twitter after writing the message, with a number of users also bringing up the allegations against her father. Oprah was on. It was her moment, and she worked it like the pro she is, belting out defiance and a new day dawning all over America. "That's how he interpreted the question", King said.

King described being in the room as "electrifying" and said producers wanted her to originally keep it to three minutes. "And now I'm thinking, 'Oh!" "Funny I've never heard you mention my name". You know, I did one of her last shows. Within months she turned the show around from the lowest- to highest-rated programme. To all the powerful men out I say your times up.
