Americans may love Oprah Winfrey, but most don't want the chat show queen to run for president, although if she did she would beat Donald Trump, a poll revealed Friday.

Mr Trump said this week he did not think Ms Winfrey would run for the White House, noting that he knew her "very well" and had appeared on one of the final episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

She said: "I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!" I did one of her last shows ...

In her speech, Winfrey told the story of Abbeville, Ala. -native Recy Taylor, a black civil rights activist who died late last month just days before her 98th birthday. King suggested, however, that the actress was "intrigued" by the idea of running.

However, King does not think she is actively considering it at this time, TIME reports. Winfrey said to a standing ovation and even some tears in the audience.

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

But others point to Trump's lack of experience, and the tumultuous first year of his presidency, as a good reason to look at the pool of experienced politicians to challenge Trump. "I thought that they would be talking about it because it was powerful".

Reese Witherspoon, Winfrey's co-star in "A Wrinkle In Time", introduced Winfrey and said her hugs could end all wars.


The press secretary added: "Is she a successful individual?"

"I like Oprah", he said. I don't think she's going to run. Although there has yet to be a confirmation or denial of these claims, HLZBLZ is definitely in support of a future President Oprah.

Singer and songwriter Seal slammed Hollywood's fawning over Winfrey after her presidential-like speech at the Golden Globe awards Sunday, saying her hypocrisy on the issue is part of the problem.

Oprah has not made any comments about the speculation which was triggered after her moving speech at the recently held Golden Globe Awards.

But he added: "I don't think she's going to run".

While the president has nothing but nice things to say about the media mogul, she hasn't been quite as kind in return. "I do think this, though".

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