Seal blasts Oprah over claims she didn't know about Harvey Weinstein allegations

Actress and TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey seen here posing with the Cecil B De Mille Award during the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday delivered a rousing speech that has Democrats talking about her running for president in 2020

Following her inspirational Golden Globes speech, "Oprah 2020" started trending on Twitter, as people wondered (and hoped) the star had plans on running for presidency in the next USA election. Though she refuses to rule out the idea, her friends say that, as of Tuesday, at least, she had no intention of seeking the presidency. Her speech was linked to a campaign speech which in turn stirred rumors that the former talk show queen's eying a potential presidential run in 2020.

Trump said Tuesday he doubted Winfrey would run, but if she did, he would win.

He added: "I did one of her last shows".

Chrissy Teigen, who along with husband John Legend are among Donald Trump's biggest critics, went right for Ivanka Trump's throat when she said: "Ew go away".

In fact, Trump knows her so well he named Oprah as his ideal running partner back in 1999 on Larry King Live.

"Right now, Oprah's about 11:1, but keep in mind when Donald Trump ran he was 60:1 facing 16 opponents", he said.

They are doing nothing to fix DACA. "Too bad!" Trump tweeted as he arrived at his private golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. And Haiti's US ambassador told the BBC that Haitians are not "simply immigrants who come here to take advantage of the U.S".

Trump did not fail to offer praise to a possible political rival.

The press secretary added: "Is she a successful individual? Absolutely, but in terms with where she stands on a number of positions, I would find a lot of problems with that", the administration spokeswoman declared.

Asked if he was serious about endorsing a TV Celebrity instead of a candidate with governing experience, Spielberg said he wants "the next president to be a president of the people".

Hollywood heavyweight Steven Spielberg has thrown his support behind Oprah Winfrey should she make a bid for president in 2020.

During her acceptance speech, Winfrey brought the Golden Globes crowd to its feet with a powerful speech where she called out sexual harassers around the world: "Their time is up".

Even if Winfrey isn't a politician by trade, her "Golden Globes speech was, without question, a first step down a political path", Cillizza wrote in a column for CNN.com. "One of them said, "'Oprah: Sounder on economics than Bernie Sanders, understands Middle America better than Elizabeth Warren, less touchy-feely than Joe Biden, more pleasant than Andrew Cuomo, more charismatic than John Hickenlooper". "We all know she is a very good talker", King said. I do think that. King, who noted that she has talked to Winfrey at length, said that the latter loves America and would like to be of service in some way.
