Steven Spielberg backs Oprah Winfrey to be next USA president

As speculations continue to mount on a possible presidential ambition for media mogul Oprah Winfrey, US President Donald Trump during a press conference when asked if he thought he could beat Oprah if she ran for president in 2020.

"The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah said Winfrey would be the "perfect opponent" for President Donald Trump because "she's everything that he's not".

"I want to start by saying that I have an enormous amount of respect for everything Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life", the singer began in a clip posted to his official Facebook page.

"I like Oprah, I don't think she's going to run", he said, repeating, "I don't think she's going to run".

Seal's post criticizing Winfrey follows her recent appearance at the 75th Annual Golden Globes, where she was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award. The 63-year-old has been a cultural force in the country for decades.

King also shared that people are excited about even the possibility of Winfrey running for the highest office in the land.

Oprah Winfrey already has one big supporter if she ever decides to run for President of the United States.


Trump, a businessman and former reality TV star, based part of his appeal on the fact he was truly not a Washington insider.

"I know her very well", he continued. "She's certainly set the bar pretty high for anybody else who decides to run (for president)". The person emphasized that Winfrey has not made up her mind about running.

"Is she a successful individual?"

Rasmussen polled 1,000 likely voters in the two days after Winfrey's Golden Globes speech, and the survey has a margin of error of 3 percentage points. Someone from his team reached out to her to see if she would talk to him, and she said she would if it was for an interview.

Oprah has been praised for her Golden Globes speech which was branded inspirational and in which she told girls watching the ceremony that a "new day is on the horizon" where no one will be the victim of sexual harassment and assault.

Ms Sanders said the message from the White House is that "everyone should come together".
