Steven Spielberg: If Oprah Winfrey runs for president, 'I will back her'

14 January 2018

Speaking at the White House Tuesday, President Trump weighed in on the possibility of running against Oprah in 2020.

But 40% of Democrats said she shouldn't run.

However, when asked directly whether she has any plans to campaign for the top job yesterday, Oprah responded: "I don't - I don't", Bloomberg reports. She had Donald Trump - this was before politics - her last week, and she had Donald Trump and my family.

Seal late Wednesday used his Instagram account to blast Oprah Winfrey over her ties to disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

And now, director Steven Spielberg has thrown his support behind the A Wrinkle In Time star, saying he would definitely back her if she chose to put herself forward as a candidate. "It would be a pretty good ticket".

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

But the president's daughter Ivanka Trump did see the speech and was all praise.

"I'm not going to focus on anyone's campaign other than President Trump's re-election", she said at the daily briefing. "So I think we are not outlandish in thinking about this because I think she's clearly thinking about it".

The press secretary added: "Is she a successful individual?" "But in terms of where she stands on a number of positions, I would find a lot of problems with that". "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way". So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president. A day earlier on Tuesday, Jan. 9, comedian Seth MacFarlane cautioned her from running as a presidential candidate in 2020.

While there's been loads of enthusiasm from some quarters following Oprah's fiery Golden Globes speech on Sunday night, we've heard a few notes of caution, too. Sen.

"If Oprah wanted to end all of this, she would have Gayle King go out there and say, 'She's not interested in it".

Twitter stuck it claws into the hide of first daughter Ivanka Trump, and snatched her to the ground, when she tried to show support for Oprah Winfrey following the multimedia mogul's unforgettable speech at the Golden Globe Awards. I do think that.
