Oprah not 'actively considering' 2020 run, says close friend Gayle King

Van Jones: If Oprah runs, 'she will destroy anybody in front of her'

Monday on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360", former Obama administration green jobs czar and network contributor Van Jones said if Oprah Winfrey ran for president, she would "destroy" anyone else.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I have always broken down the fact that Oprah Winfrey is a top globalist, a top eugenicist, who pushes a one world religion through her private foundation", he ranted.

That's not to say Oprah didn't give a great speech, because she did, and speech-making is indeed part of running for and serving as president. She did so again on Sunday, after delivering a speech that promised "a new day" for women, saying "I don't", when asked by Bloomberg News if she had a plan to run. What's missing? Experience in government, a demonstrated grasp of public policy, political skills, including the ability to negotiate and compromise across partisan and worldwide lines, and, most of all, a desire to serve.

Trump vs. Oprah? The president says it'd be fun, unlikely, and the result would be a foregone conclusion. But Winfrey also mentions the sexual harassment problem as one that "transcends" culture, geography and the workplace: "All the women who've endured years of abuse, they like my mother had children to feed, bills to pay and dreams to pursue". Her longtime partner suggested that she could be persuaded.

Oprah Winfrey holds the 2018 Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award in the press room during the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

Jones said many Americans are concerned about growing hatred and intolerance and Winfrey could bring a "values-based front for inclusion and tolerance" to the country.

Being president isn't like hosting a talk show or running a media brand.

"I like Oprah", Trump told ABC News in June 2015. "Really?" and bemoaned the "impossibly boring" current crop of major political figures, making people more likely to vote for celebrities like Trump or Winfrey. "But I don't think she's actively considering it at this time". The person emphasised that the star had not made up her mind about running.

"His tie was white and of course his skin was black and I had never seen a black man being celebrated like that", she said.

Winfrey appeared on CBS's "This Morning" in October to talk about a story she worked on as a correspondent for "60 Minutes".

In the true fashion of a politician considering a run, she's played coy on the subject in the past (using the word "Never!" multiple times), but Winfrey's impassioned remarks on the #MeToo movement and forward-looking tone didn't do much to put rest to the rumors that she could put her hat in the 2020 ring. Actually, there's a pretty good chance it's not.
