Oprah Winfrey urged to run for president

Oprah Winfrey speaks at the Golden Globe Awards

But now her close pal King has claimed the star isn't actively looking to enter politics, although the idea of becoming president has piqued her interest.

If you wonder why anyone is taking the Oprah-for-president idea seriously, go back and listen to that speech.

Former Trump White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who was the public face of some of the Trump administration's early missteps previous year, said on the "Good Morning Britain" show that Winfrey lacked "political infrastructure" and would have a hard time adjusting to the White House. Graham also told the Los Angeles Times that "It's up to the people". 'She would absolutely do it'. But the famous television host does not plan to take up the challenge yet, according to King, who was pressed by colleagues on CBS This Morning to say whether she believes Winfrey will run.

Celebrities and pundits alike expressed interest in an Oprah 2020 run, noting that - unlike Trump - she is actually a self-made billionaire and that she already has near-ubiquitous name recognition in the country. "I know her very well", he told reporters on Tuesday.

Otherwise, as Winfrey herself might say, we might end up with a 2020 race that makes the 2016 Republican primaries look dignified by comparison: "You get a run at the White House!" I know her very well.

"I like Oprah", he said.

Winfrey was a popular surrogate for President Obama.

Mr Trump's daughter and White House advisor, Ivanka Trump, was criticised for tweeting her praise for Oprah's speech, given the allegations of sexual harassment against her father, all of which he has denied. People said 'oh yeah, she wrote that speech as a launching pad for what she wants to do.' That's absolutely not true. "I was up talking to her very late last night", King added.

King described Graham as being 'nothing but supportive, ' adding, 'he would never throw it out there like that'.

No, she hasn't. In fact, as recently as September and October 2017, Oprah dismissed similar speculations while saying Trump's win made her rethink the requirements of the office, reported The Associated Press.

In an interview with Bloomberg TV that same month, she hinted that Mr Trump's lack of government experience had recalibrated her own thoughts. "I 100% know who I used to work for". I think of myself as pretty hard-bitten and jaded, but I found it inspirational - even thrilling. So, there's no question in mind that she would be a formidable opponent.

"It was the right person giving the right speech at the right time", King said.
