Speculation of an Oprah Winfrey run for US President started as soon as she finished her inspirational speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night, January 7. Winfrey spoke out as she became the first African-American woman to be awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes.

PinkNews reports that “Fans and allies have speculated on whether she would run for the top job in recent years, but Winfrey herself has always been reluctant to say…The friends also revealed that a presidential run is not a recent idea, and the OWN TV channel boss had been considering a run for several months.”

A strong supporter of LGBT rights, Winfrey campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Winfrey has said she always thought the job would require far more experience than she has – but has recently changed her mind. “It’s clear you don’t need government experience to be elected president of the United States”, she said.
