Trump says beating Oprah will be 'lots of fun'

"And Oprah, while I have you, in 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner".

Oprah has in the past said that she has no plans on running for elected office, but sources close to the celebrity have said since that awards speech that she is "actively considering" running for president against Trump in 2020. But the latter tossed her support to Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton by responding, "I'm with her".

And the Jaws director doesn't think her lack of experience will hinder her in any way, as he notes that Trump also had little political background when he became president.

"Oprah Winfrey is receiving the Cecil".

The friends also revealed that a presidential run is not a recent idea, and the OWN TV channel boss had been considering a run for several months. "It would be a pretty good ticket". "I absolutely don't think her position has changed", King said on "CBS This Morning".

A White House spokesman said Monday the Trump team would welcome Winfrey's candidacy, or that of anyone else.

And ironically, Trump previously said if he were to run for President that he would have chosen Oprah as his running mate.

"She is crackerjack on the money on women's issues and I call her the ambassador of empathy", he continues. "I knew her very well", he added. Of course, I love Oprah like everybody else.

"I do think this though guys, I do think she's intrigued by the idea, I do think that", King continued.

"I'm sure if she decides to run, which I think the president states he doesn't feel she will, I'm sure she'll have help with that", Sanders added. "She's not thinking that, 'Oh, since I did this speech, I qualify to be president or I even want to be president'".

Seal's reference to people believing Oprah is the "solution" comes after she delivered a powerful speech at the Golden Globes in which she referenced the #MeToo movement and "women who have endured years of abuse and assault".

During her speech, Winfrey recalled watching Sidney Poitier win at the Golden Globes for 1964's Lilies of the Field and how it was the first time she saw a black man celebrated on television.
