Talk show host, Oprah Winfrey is making a buzz online since March 1 after saying she is now considering to run for president. At first, she didn't think she would qualify but after Donald Trump won, she is now thinking that there is a chance that she could win the next election.

In an article published by Yahoo, it was during an interview with David Rubenstein that Oprah revealed the probability of her running for office. The famous TV host was skeptical in the beginning of doing it because she doesn't have an experience in politics but now she is reconsidering it because Trump won and he doesn't have any political background at all.

This is not the first time that she was asked if she will run for president of the United States. But she would always answer no because of her lack of experience. In fact, she even said she will never do it.

All these have changed after President Donald Trump took office. Now, Vanity Fair even has an update regarding this saying that Oprah's best friend, Gayle King, made a confirmation to the public that running for office is not off the table for Oprah. She even almost made it into politics during the last election when she was tapped to run for vice president against Trump.

Moreover, when this reached the now president Donald Trump, he said that he is even supporting the idea to have Oprah as his vice president. This is not the first time that Trump was open to this since apparently, he had this even in 1999.

As of the moment, that would be unlikely to happen now but still, the 2020 election is open for Oprah to be the next president of the United States. It figures since she is considered as one of the most influential female in the whole world.
