Winfrey highlights story of black woman raped by white men

Oprah Winfrey speaks at the Golden Globe Awards

Oprah was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement during the 75th Annual Golden Globes on Sunday after which she delivered a speech that has many thinking she'll run for president in 2020. But a veteran Democratic organizer, whose résumé includes big fund-raisers for Hillary Clinton's presidential run, says the billionaire media mogul is more likely to become a game-changer behind the scenes.

Earlier, her close friend, television host Gail King, told CBS TV that Winfrey was "intrigued" by the idea of competing in the presidential election.

Current US President Donald Trump, who rode his own wave of notoriety to the White House previous year, dismissed suggestions Winfrey could be his nemesis in 2020.

People are lining up to support someone for president without her having issued one policy statement.

"I think Oprah Winfrey would make an absolutely brilliant president", he tells The Guardian. It was very important for her because it would be the first time people heard from her in any detail about the Me Too movement.

According to recent bestseller Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, written by Michael Wolff, Ms Trump has her own future designs on the presidency.

Asked whether Winfrey was qualified, Sanders said, "Look, I disagree very much on her policies", although Winfrey has no voting record.

The press secretary added: "Is she a successful individual?" "She wanted it to be a uniting speech", King said.

He told a News-Miner reporter at the Sam's location that there were no major problems, just a "handful" of vehicle crashes. The restructuring comes the day after Walmart announced it will raise its starting hourly wages to $11.

"I don't think she is actively considering it, I don't think she is actively considering it at this time", King said. "I think it is something that Oprah would have to feel and sense for herself".

"That's what I thought", she continued.

Trump said he appeared on one of Oprah's last shows and knows her quite well.

"Stedman would never so cavalierly say, 'Absolutely she would do it, '" King continued. She has got, you know...

Speculation about Winfrey running for White House has been around for some months now.

Winfrey would certainly have her legion of backers, with reports saying the star was.

"Which brings me to this: What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have".

King, who attended the awards ceremony alongside Winfrey and Graham, said being in the room was 'electrifying'.
