Oprah Winfrey's long-term partner thinks she would "absolutely" run for president

"I think one of the arguments for Oprah is 45", Pelosi said, referring to Trump in shorthand for the 45th president.

Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is putting to rest the reports that Oprah Winfrey is planning a presidential run. "I don't think at this point she's actually considering it".

But King did acknowledge a glimmer of hope for those dreaming of an Oprah bid: "I do think she's intrigued by the idea". "You know, I did one of her last shows".

She said: "I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!"

Winfrey had sparked off speculation that she could run for president in 2020 with her epic Golden Globes speech on Sunday, January 7, 2018.

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.

"I'll beat Oprah", the president declared flatly at a White House meeting Tuesday - though he quickly added, "I don't think she's going to run".

In that same year, he also tweeted that he "adored" Oprah.

This isn't the first time Winfrey's presidential run has been shut down.

Winfrey was a strong supporter of former President Barack Obama's 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns and she endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Winfrey's speech included impassioned remarks about the #MeToo movement.

Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation's highest office, though she noted that Trump's victory made her rethink the requirements of the office.

"We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters on Monday, adding that Trump will definitely run for reelection. "I absolutely don't think that her position has changed".

In her powerful speech, Oprah spoke about press freedom, racism and sexual abuse before receiving a standing ovation with her closing words about the future. I mean, that's what I'm saying.

"Over the years, I've voted for as many Republicans as I have Democrats, so this isn't about partisanship for me, this is very, very personal", she said.
