At the Golden Globes, Oprah expressed her respect to those who left their mark on the world and shared her advice for those who want to make a difference. That widely watched speech led to calls for Winfrey to run for the presidency in 2020. As recently on Feb. 23, Winfrey has repeatedly said that she will not be running.
Ongoing Yes/ No from Oprah hasn't stopped current president Donald Trump to be vocal about his possible opponent in 2020 election. Last month, Trump tweeted:
Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes. The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs, so that she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others'.
Again, President Trump in his speech in Pennsylvania publicly said:
"I would love Oprah to win. I would love to beat Oprah. I know her weakness. Wouldn't we love to run against Oprah? I would love it. I would love it. That would be a painful experience for her."
However, Trump denies saying Winfrey's weakness only mentioning, in the past he had been to her show.
