Steven Spielberg: If Oprah Winfrey runs for president, 'I will back her'

13 January 2018

"I think Oprah Winfrey would make an absolutely brilliant president", the Oscar-winning director told the Guardian on Thursday.

Trump, speaking with reporters during a White House meeting today, said in response to a question: "Yeah, I'll beat Oprah".

He added: 'Oprah would be a lot of fun. When she ramped the energy and emotion even higher with her "new day is on the horizon" proclamation, I no longer had any doubt that I was hearing political oratory of a very high order.

Naturally, Twitter had quite a bit to say about Trump's confident stance.

After the inspiring speech given by Oprah Winfrey at the Golden Globes, a presidential poll was conducted and revealed she would beat Donald Trump by 10 points in a hypothetical 2020 election.

The Los Angeles Times asked her partner of many years, Stedman Graham, if he thought she would potentially pursue a presidential run, and he said, "It's up to the people". Winfrey has her own studio, a TV channel and a magazine.

"By the end of her speech, the Winfrey had blended her rags-to-wealth-and-fame story into exhortations of press freedom, justice for sexual assault victims, and the contributions and sacrifices of maids, farm workers and others, saying to girls all around the world: "... I think we'd win easily, actually'. She touched on the #MeToo movement, talking about the "women whose names we'll never know... the domestic workers and farm workers working in factories and restaurants".

"Right now, Oprah's about 11:1, but keep in mind when Donald Trump ran he was 60:1 facing 16 opponents", he said. His ex-wife Heidi Klum spoke out against Weinstein in October, but did not say that she was harassed by him. "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run". "I do think this though guys, I do think she's intrigued by the idea, I do think that".

The former queen of daytime television, multi-billionaire, philanthropist and actress - and that's just some of her titles - was mum while her closest friends were divided on the issue.
