Media mogul, Oprah Winfrey has hinted an interest in becoming the President of America in 2020. Following her empowering speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday, January, 7. The popular Media personality is said to be the most current favourite to replace Donald Trump as US President at the end of his first term in 2020.
The billionaire former chat show host was lauded after giving a rousing and inspiring speech at the Golden Globes award night where she became the first black woman to receive the Cecil B DeMille award.
Oprah received a standing ovation after honouring those who came forward in the wake of the Hollywood sex scandal, telling young girls that a “new day is on the horizon” when nobody will be a victim of sexual violence.
This is no surprise as Donald Trump, a wealthy TV celebrity and political novice changed the game by becoming President in 2017. Oprah is no exception to such measure and can also turn the tables around.
After the speech, the actor and producer, who is chief executive of the OWN cable channel, told the Bloomberg news agency that she has no plans to run. But on Monday CNN reported that she is “actively thinking” about it, citing two close friends, whom it did not name. And the Los Angeles Times quoted Stedman Graham, Winfrey’s longtime partner, as saying: “It’s up to the people … She would absolutely do it.”
Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump last year. There is no doubt more women will emerge for Presidency in 2020 and Oprah is one of the favourites.
