Oprah and Trump go way, way back together. Here's proof

Speculation that Winfrey could run for the White House in 2020 has swirled since her rousing speech at the Golden Globe Awards, praising women who have spoken up against sexual violence and promising "a new day".

He then captioned the snap: "Oh I forgot, that's right.you'd heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young starry-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into".

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", he told reporters during a Cabinet meeting on immigration.

"I did not think they would be talking about it in presidential terms", King said on CBS This Morning of Oprah's speech, as People notes. Graham also told the Los Angeles Times that "It's up to the people. She would absolutely do it", Stedman said.

"Oprah would be a lot of fun", said Trump, who added that he knows her "very well".

He noted that he and his family were on one of the final episodes of her syndicated talk show.

Winfrey herself has not said anything publicly since Sunday on the prospect of challenging Trump, but in the past, she has rejected the idea of entering politics. And Oprah - worth a whopping $3 billion - is just 63: She'd be younger moving into the White House than Mr. Trump was.

Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation's highest office, though she noted that Trump's victory made her rethink the requirements of the office. In my career, what I've always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave.

"Sean Spicer says Oprah does not have the political experience to be president".

Winfrey was a popular surrogate for President Obama.

Two unnamed pals of Winfrey's added to the speculation by telling CNN Money that the longtime talk show host is "actively thinking" about a bid.

In a veiled attack on Trump, she raised the issue of press freedom, saying the press is under "siege" these days.

"And he said, "Absolutely, she would". He would never do that, ' King said.

Oprah Winfrey at the 75th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills on January 7. "I do think that".

"Until this election year I thought, 'Wow". So, there's no question in mind that she would be a formidable opponent.

Winfrey has previously said she has no interest in running for office and King said she believed her friend's position was unchanged.
