Oprah Winfrey seems to be setting her eyes on the presidency in 2020.

Donald Trump’s auspicious political rise has led Oprah Winfrey to consider whether or not she could become the second TV entertainer to live in the White House.

Oprah told Bloomberg interviewer David Rubenstein that before Trump won the November election, she had felt unqualified to be president.

But that is now in the past.

She said:

“I actually never thought that that was – I never considered the question, even a possibility.

But when reality-show icon, Trump beat longtime politician, Hillary Clinton, she said:



“I just thought, ‘Oh! Oh!”‘

“I thought, “Oh, gee, I don’t have experience. I don’t know enough. I don’t.”

“And now I’m thinking, “Oh! Oh!”‘

If she contests and wins, Oprah would be the first female president of America.

She could succeed if she leverages her near-universal name ID and nationwide support to match Trump’s political flight.

Oprah told Rubenstein, that she built her career on one unlikely triumph after another.

When she was hired to host ‘A. M. Chicago’ in 1984, she said, most of her friends predicted she would fail because her show competed with legendary interviewer Phil Donahue.

Oprah recalls:

“‘It didn’t matter to me, because I did not think that he was beatable.

“But ultimately, I beat him. I did. I wasn’t trying to.”

If 63-year-old Oprah should run for president and win, she would gain one of the only pulic platforms bigger than the one she already enjoys.
