I'll beat Oprah in a presidential race - US President

Ever since Sunday night's Golden Globes, when Oprah Winfrey delivered a wise, empathetic, and altogether rousing speech as she accepted her Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement, there has been a low rumbling to a deafening roar about a possible Oprah presidential run in 2020. "I think it's a very very intriguing idea myself".

U.S. President Donald Trump waves to fans as he attends the NCAA College Football Playoff Championship game between Alabama and Georgia in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. January 8, 2018. She had Donald Trump - this was before politics - her last week, and she had Donald Trump and my family.

And in 2015, Trump again suggested he might pick Winfrey as his presidential running mate, telling ABC News's George Stephanopoulos that the two would "win easily" if they teamed up. In fact, she was brought into the mix nearly 20 years ago by current President Donald Trump.

"Whether she likes it or not, you are attached, you are an entity, you're no longer one person", McCain scolded.

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah" he said, before adding that he didn't think the fellow billionaire was going to run, but that she "would be a lot of fun". "I know her very well", Trump said at the White House as he met with lawmakers to discuss immigration.

"Given the choice between Oprah and our current president, I'm on the bus with Oprah travelling the country encouraging people to sign up and vote", he said. It was very nice...

What caused protests to flare up in Iran?
He added his government has "hard evidence" the recent protests in Iran were "very clearly directed from abroad". According to the Iranian authorities more than 450 rioters have been arrested and will be put on trial soon.

In that same year, he also tweeted that he "adored" Oprah. She campaigned with the then-Senator Barack Obama in Iowa in 2008.

King added, "But listen, there are people saying they want to quit their jobs and be her campaign manager".

Oprah hasn't personally given a clear answer on a presidential run since the speech, but she publicly ruled it out as recently as three months ago.

As Democrats encouraged Winfrey to consider a bid, her best friend, CBS News host Gayle King, said Tuesday that Winfrey is "intrigued" by the idea. "I don't", King said.

Some political operatives think she has what it takes to be a viable presidential contender.

She wrote: "Just saw Oprah's empowering and inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes".
