“I am definitely not running for president,” says Oprah Winfrey.
Winfrey responded once again to rumours that she is planning a run for president of the United States, this time on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night.
The host wanted to get the question out of the way right off the top, at which point Winfrey completely denied she’s running, with some sad boos from the audience.
“You know, you give a speech,” Winfrey said, referencing her Lifetime Achievement Award acceptance speech at the Golden Globes last month, “and you sit down and you have surprisingly started to run for president.”
Kimmel then asked about Donald Trump’s recent tweet calling Winfrey “insecure” and suggesting that he would love to see her run “so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!”
“You don’t win by meeting any sort of negativity head-on,” Winfrey responded simply.
