White House Would 'Welcome' 2020 Oprah Challenge

White House Would 'Welcome' 2020 Oprah Challenge

The White House responded on Monday to speculation that Winfrey could mount a bid for the presidency, saying that President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE and his team would "welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else".

So I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon!

"I think we need more role models like her that are speaking to young women and trying to restore some hope".

Oprah Winfrey pointed out the value of a free press.

During host Seth Meyers's opening monologue, he acknowledged the claim that his disparaging remarks at the 2011 White House Correspondents' Association dinner may have influenced President Donald Trump to run. Oprah for president? It didn't look like a stretch. But Winfrey also mentions the sexual harassment problem as one that "transcends" culture, geography and the workplace: "All the women who've endured years of abuse, they like my mother had children to feed, bills to pay and dreams to pursue".

"It's up to the people", Winfrey's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, apparently told the LA Times inside the ceremony.

Becoming the first black woman to accept the Cecil B. De Mille lifetime achievement award, her speech wove together gender, poverty and race.

In fact, in his first season with the Brazilian team he was chosen as the best centre back of the Campeonato Paulista in 2017. Mina was a key part for Palmeiras when it won the Brazilian league in 2016 and was runner-up previous year .

Washington Post journalist Jennifer Rubin wrote: "This is the most hypocritical, clueless statement in her regrettable time in the WH".

Still, while some Democrats would embrace Winfrey's outsider-celebrity status as the party's answer to Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., noted that Winfrey, like Trump, lacks any kind of experience in government.

Oprah's presidential history also extends to the previous administration.

Winfrey confidante Gayle King said earlier on Tuesday there was no change in Winfrey's past position - that she is not interested in running for president.

Winfrey campaigned for President Barack Obama in 2008 and later in 2016 for Hillary Clinton, calling her candidacy a "seminal moment for women".

However, Oprah herself has said that she is not interested in running for the seat. "I mean, she's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman", Trump told CNN's Larry King.

In the true fashion of a politician considering a run, she's played coy on the subject in the past (using the word "Never!" multiple times), but Winfrey's impassioned remarks on the #MeToo movement and forward-looking tone didn't do much to put rest to the rumors that she could put her hat in the 2020 ring. "It would be a pretty good ticket".
