President Trump says he would beat Oprah in 2020

President Trump says he would beat Oprah in 2020

"President Trump said Tuesday that he'd 'beat Oprah" if talk show host Oprah Winfrey faced off against him in the 2020 presidential election'.

Even so, for Democrats in early voting states, and perhaps for a public that largely disapproves of President Donald Trump's job performance, the notion of a popular media figure as a presidential candidate is not as odd as it once seemed, given the NY real estate mogul and reality TV star now in the White House.

"She really did want to say enough already and I think she delivered on all that in a very eloquent way". I don't think she's gonna run.

Professor of Security and Diplomacy at RMIT, Joseph Siracusa, had little doubt of the result.

That source suggests Winfrey's ability to sway politicians on a local level might even make her more influential than a President, but recommends that she lets potential opponents sweat.

Our inside-the-Beltway mole points out that like President Trump, Winfrey is comfortable on camera, understands media and knows how to promote.

Winfrey, who is a strong supporter of LGBT rights, campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

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

But when Stedman Graham, her longtime partner, was asked about the chances of Winfrey running in 2020 following the Golden Globes awards night, he told the Los Angeles Times that it is up to the people.

"Does it translate into votes and effective legislation?"

Winfrey's name came up again at the White House press briefing on January 9, when Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if she had any campaign advice for the famed talk show host.

"Look, I disagree very much on her policies", the spokeswoman said. Over 30-plus years, she became the face of television talk shows, starred and produced feature films, and began her own network.

(Democrats: See Ronald Reagan.) Of course, Oprah will have this going for her: Anyone who opposes her automatically will be smeared as a racist and misogynist. The teary eyes, the smiles that said everything you needed to say without uttering a word. She has got, you know...

Making a plea for a free press, Winfrey said, "I want to say I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times".

He added a meme featuring Oprah and Harvey at events together.

"Do you think I am going to be that successful?"

She added, however, "You always have the right to change her mind".

The new day is on the horizon and when that new day finally dawns.
