Oprah Winfrey says there’s one thing that would convince her to run for president in 2020. Winfrey told People magazine in an interview for the new cover story that if God tells her to run, she will.
People quotes Winfrey saying: “I went into prayer. ‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’ And I haven’t gotten that.”
The article notes that Winfrey “found herself in the political spotlight after her inspiring speech at the 2018 Golden Globes while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Winfrey had the crowd of Hollywood’s biggest stars on their feet and in tears with her moving words and promise that ‘a new day is dawning.’ She was surprised to hear the immediate response the rest of the country had.”
Reflecting on her Golden Globes speech, she told People: “When I walked off with Reese [Witherspoon], I thought, ‘I got that done. It wasn’t until I was back in the press room that they said, ‘Do you realize you’re trending?’”
