Steven Spielberg Endorses Oprah Winfrey for President: 'I Will Back Her'

Cillizza spoke with Brian Stelter about the political undertones of Winfrey's speech and the possibility of a Winfrey-Trump 2020 presidential showdown for this week's Reliable Sources podcast.

If she did choose to run, she would square off against President Donald Trump.

"Oprah would be a lot of fun", the president told reporters at the White House. "If she declares, I will back her". Steven Spielberg said, "I think Oprah Winfrey would make an absolutely brilliant president".

Naturally, Twitter had quite a bit to say about Trump's confident stance.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he would beat Oprah Winfrey in a potential 2020 presidential match-up, though he doesn't think she will end up running.

The three-time Academy Award victor, speaking in London alongside director Steven Spielberg and co-star Tom Hanks, said the 63-year-old has shown presidential qualities. I did one of her last shows. "I'd much rather go for someone like Oprah Winfrey than a career politician".

Sharing pictures of the pair together, Seal included the caption: "When you have been part of the problem for decades. but suddenly they all think you are the solution".

He added: "She'd be sort of like me". It was very important for her because it would be the first time people heard from her in any detail about the Me Too movement. For that crucial decision - to hold the line, to risk everything - to have that fall to a woman who was really alone in her position, that's what interested me. She wrote, "It's about time we had a strong, independent and intelligent woman leading the way and encouraging young women like me to follow suit". "I thought, oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough, and now I'm thinking, "oh". I also know that after years of watching The Oprah Winfrey Show, you always have the right to change your mind.

Broaddick also linked to a 2004 interview that Winfrey conducted with Clinton.

The President will have surprised few observers with his predicted outcome of any future White House race against Ms Winfrey.

In her speech, Winfrey used the power of her voice to showcase an issue that, while having little exposure in news, has, and continues to, infect our society.
