Oprah Winfrey as a presidential prospect has long been discussed. Her rousing speech at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards reignited the women’s empowerment movement. Winfrey’s street smarts, leadership capabilities, strength, and proficient business mindset are all great qualities for the leader of the free world to possess. Let’s examine some reasons why Oprah Winfrey should be president in 2020.
She has charisma
Winfrey has a way with words and storytelling. If you recall her being the host of The Oprah Winfrey Show many of the topics that were discussed and the intelligent questions she asked her guests were captivating.
An Amazing speaker
Being president means participation in many speaking engagements. Although speeches recited by the president are organized by White House staff, Winfrey would without a doubt put her own twist on it.
She would beat Trump in a heartbeat
According to Time Magazine, in a poll taken in the earlier portion of 2017, Winfrey was a favourable candidate over Trump. Enough said.
Philanthropy at its finest
She wasn’t named one of the 50 most generous Americans in 2004 for no small feat. Her Oprah’s Angel Network has garnered over $80,000,000 before becoming defunct in 2010. The establishment of Oprah Winfrey’s Leadership Academy for Girls in Johannesburg, South Africa has provided 450 students with quality education, extraordinary equipment, and excellent mentorship opportunities.
Master of reinvention
Born from meager means, Winfrey has overcome sexual abuse, teenage pregnancy, and self-inflicted doubt. She has used her adversity as stepping stones to assist and inspire others to overcome difficulties to become the best version of themselves.
An exceptional leader
Winfrey was able to take the position of a news anchor to host of a 30-minute program and transform that into a distribution deal that birthed The Oprah Winfrey Show to the formulation of her OWN network as well as various distribution and media deals. That’s taking the hand you were dealt and playing it well.
She’s all inclusive
As a public figure, she has the ability to identify with many individuals from unique walks of life. She has the ability to connect with others regardless of race, religion, and creed. This is evident as her reign of one of the most influential media havens to date.
Though Winfrey doesn’t have political experience the skills she possesses can be transferred into the role of president.
Here’s what some are saying on Twitter:
ASK YOURSELF WHY THE NEWS MEDIA AND THE DEM. PARTY DO NOT WANT OPRAH TO RUN FOR PRES. WHEN HOLLYWOOD AND THE PUBLIC WANT HER TO RUN FOR PRES.?????

Could all the Oprah talk just be because we’re tired of all the childish gibberish from the current pres? Not taking anything away from Oprah, but we are starved for intelligent articulate talk

If Oprah runs for Pres in 2020 I hope she runs as an Indy @GreenPartyUS I’d vote for her. If she runs as a blue donkey I’d have to go back with a Trump vote.

Oprah is a terrific choice for pres. Then VP Donahue, Sec. of State Jerry Springer, Maury heads up Health+Human Services, AG Sally Jesse Rap

If Oprah runs as a Dem for pres. she must be ready, able and willing to label every single american that doesn’t vote for her as a racist and sexist. Why ?, Because Dems will insist on it. That’s what Dems do. Even if it’s against her will.

White majority media having fun with idea of Oprah running for Pres., but if a true black man were running this pseudo enthusiasm would abruptly end; then, avert to finding gossip to reduce his chance of winning. https://t.co/rntbK9JN4f
