Oprah Announced She Is Not Running For 2020 Presidency – blogged by @worldwidekeege (swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Oprah didn’t get as far as she is in life by being childish and going tit for tat with everyone that tried to intimidate her, and it won’t start with Trump, even with the power he has as our country’s president. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Saturday, Trump went to a campaign rally and attempted to defame Oprah’s throne by claiming he knew her “weaknesses” and would enjoy running against her because of that. He implied that he would use those weaknesses against her to make the experience “painful”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, Oprah went on CNN’s highly popular, “The Van Jones Show” on Sunday and announced that she will not be running for president in 2020, but for anyone that plans to, she has some dear advice for them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The bold and powerful philanthropist said… “I will say to whoever is going to run for office, do not give your energy to the other side… Do not spend all your time talking about your opponents. Do not give your energy to that which you really don’t believe in. Do not spend an ounce of your time on that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Winfrey went on to add that all of the speculation for her to run “humbly” and “deeply” moved her, but we won’t be able to see her as our first female president. When asked by the CNN host, Van Jones, what she would say if she were able to talk to Trump for just 10 minutes, the iconic role model kept it cute and quaint. Simply stating: “I would Only speak if I felt that I could be heard.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Very well said, Oprah. That’s why we love you! The time is coming soon to see who will be running for our country’s 2020 presidency. Who do you think will step up to the plate now?
