U.S. Presidency: Oprah Winfrey Thinks She Might Run As President; Know What Changed Her Mind

Oprah Winfrey is one of the most influential women not just in America but in the whole world. Her rags-to-riches story has earned her adoration and approval from people from all walks of life. The media mogul, no doubt, has a voice that everyone will want to hear.

Currently, she is producing and managing a television network that caters to meaningful and life-changing shows. She is a devout believer in God. Her career as a talk show host has paved the way for her success in all aspects of her life.

Winfrey has shied away from politics particularly the highest position in the White House. She believes she lacks the relevant experience to run a country like America. She said that she is considering her own credentials in view of the Oval Office position as per BBC. This is revealed when she was asked in a Bloomberg interview.

The 63-year-old weight loss advocate said that she did not consider politics before. She said, “I just thought, ‘Oh… oh?'” Thinking about Donald Trump, the TV personnel for Bloomberg said that she does not need that much political experience to become president. Oprah Winfrey said that now she is thinking.

If Winfrey runs as president, she has a big chance of winning. She gave Barack Obama her support and it has improved his chances of winning. In the 2016 elections, her support for Hillary Clinton was less enthusiastic.

Donald Trump Wanted Oprah Winfrey To Be On His Team

Donald Trump has seen the potential of Oprah Winfrey. When he thought of running in the 1999 election, he considered her to be her running mate.  It was only now when Trump was already at the White House that she considered running for the office.

According to Huffington Post, Michael Moore said that it is a need to have a presidential candidate that people love. He added that America has lots of lovable people in terms of personality and credentials. He cited Arnold Schwarzenegger and Oprah Winfrey.

Will Oprah Winfrey try her hand at politics? There have been speculations that Kanye West and Mark Zuckerberg will run for the US presidency. Nothing is impossible. There might be politically inexperienced people that are destined for a higher calling in America. Who knows they might do wonders to make the country really great again.
