Donald Trump says he would 'beat Oprah' in presidency battle

Once the reaction to Oprah Winfrey's Golden Globes speech shifted to calls for a presidential run, and the media began asking if Winfrey was looking to get in the 2020 race, you just knew the backlash from Fox News' opinion hosts was right around the corner. Trevor Noah can see it.

Twitter ignited, Democrats championed her as superior to Trump and even Republicans admitted she was a formidable opponent to a reality star president, who himself named Winfrey as his pick for vice president in an interview 20 years ago.

During her speech, she recalled being inspired as a child by previous Cecil B DeMille award victor Sidney Poitier, the first black actor to win a best actor Oscar. Am I the only one that had that feeling?

The speech prompted speculation that Oprah may be considering running for the presidency in 2020.

Winfrey endorsed Democratic Senator Barack Obama of IL when he first ran successfully for the U.S. presidency in 2008, and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her losing 2016 campaign against Trump.

Speaking on a special edition of his show on Monday night, host Sean Hannity hit out at liberals who had become excited about an Oprah run following her impassioned speech, commenting that they were "sheep". I don't think she had any intention of declaring. "She had Donald Trump".

"Still, she added that Winfrey "loves this country and would like to be of service in some way". I don't think at this point she is actually considering it".

Last autumn - when another wealthy media personality, Donald Trump, was elected U.S. president - Ms Winfrey dismissed the notion of running for president.

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men", she said to a standing ovation.

As he wrapped up the event, a reporter asked "can you you beat Oprah?"

"I want to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue".

"The television star and self-made billionaire addressed the "#MeToo" moment and promised that "a new day is on the horizon" during a Golden Globes award acceptance speech Sunday night. She was also criticized for serving as a surrogate for him.

This isn't the first time that Weight Watchers has been a beneficiary of Winfrey's clout.
