Trump says beating Oprah will be 'lots of fun'

Amid frenzied speculation over a potential challenge from Oprah Winfrey in 2020, President Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday that running against her "would be a lot of fun", and he would beat her - but also said he doesn't think she's going to run. King suggested, however, that the actress was "intrigued" by the idea of running.

"I think it is something that Oprah would have to feel and sense for herself".

However, he added, "I don't think she's going to run". "She would absolutely do it".

Speaking on a special edition of his show on Monday night, host Sean Hannity hit out at liberals who had become excited about an Oprah run following her impassioned speech, commenting that they were "sheep".

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

King said Winfrey "loves this country" and hopes to be "of service in some way", without holding the highest office in America.

But Ullah's case has receded from the headlines since that time, and he faces a months-long road ahead to a possible trial. Ullah had a pipe bomb strapped to his body with Velcro when it went off inside the station.

Winfrey's close friend, CBS anchor Gayle King, said Tuesday that Winfrey is "intrigued by the idea" of running for president, but did not write her speech with politics in mind. "Is she a successful individual? Like, it gives me strength to hopefully help other women", she adds. 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.

This time, all the talk was about another president: Oprah Winfrey.

Longtime beau Stedman Graham, after Winfrey's Sunday night speech, signaled Winfrey might run. "And we've seen this before in our history - where people who have tried to pop in that are not in politics and have had a hard time adjusting".

"She's certainly a bigger celebrity than Trump ever was, especially in terms of connecting with her audience". "I 100% know who I used to work for". "I thought that they would be talking about it because it was powerful". So she knew that she wanted to say something significant.

Winfrey made history as the first African American women to win the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement at this year's Golden Globes. I think of myself as pretty hard-bitten and jaded, but I found it inspirational - even thrilling.

The 63-year-old media icon has caused a stir after her rallying speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday set tongues wagging about a potential presidential candidacy for the 2020 election.
