"And Oprah, while I have you, in 2011 I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents' Dinner - jokes about how he was unqualified to be president - and some have said that night convinced him to run".

Trump took a few questions after a meeting with top Democrats and Republicans on a potential immigration deal on border security and DACA. Would you really want to get mad at Oprah? "I think Oprah would be great".

He recalled that he and his family appeared on Oprah's TV show in its final week. "I said, 'I think this is beyond and above politics.' It feels like something new".

"This should cover you for about two weeks".

But after Ms Winfrey's inspirational speech at the Golden Globe awards which called for a "new day", speculation has grown that she's planning a campaign. I don't think she had any intention [of declaring].

Gayle King, who is close friends with Winfrey, said on "CBS This Morning" earlier Tuesday that Winfrey finds the idea "intriguing" but added that she doesn't believe Winfrey is actually considering it right now.

Winfrey brought the typically rowdy crowd to silence and tears with her speech.

"She would be a serious candidate", said Jennifer Palmieri, former White House communications director under President Barack Obama and the communications director for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign. No, I like Oprah.

She seems very nice, and many Americans look up to her in an nearly quasi-religious reverence. "If she runs, she's our nominee". "You always have the right to change your mind".

After recalling a time in her childhood when she watched Sidney Poitier became the first black person to win the Oscar for Best Actor, Winfrey went on to say that it wasn't lost on her during the moment that there is a little girl watching her become the first black woman to receive the Demille award. Yet Ivanka remains her father's biggest supporter and is somehow a part of the Trump administration.

No clear Democratic front-runner has emerged to challenge Trump in 2020, with the immediate political focus in the US on November's congressional elections, when the 435-member House of Representatives will be up for election, along with a third of the 100-member Senate.
