However, Trump himself had praised Winfrey on several occasions, even once floating her as a possible vice presidential pick before his own official entry into politics. In an interview with InStyle last week, she said, "It's just not in my spirit".

People cheered for Winfrey to run for the 2020 presidency election after the touching speech she gave at the Golden Globes last month. Her longtime boyfriend Stedman Graham said, "It's up to the people" whether she runs, but added that "she would absolutely do it". "And I haven't heard that".

"Because if God actually wanted me to run, wouldn't God kind of tell me?" she said on "60 Minutes Overtime". She said: "I was looking for a way to express what was going on in this moment in terms of gender and class and race".
