For all those people who are hoping that Oprah Winfrey would run for president in 2020 she says, on one condition.

She stirred up at the Golden Globes speech earlier this year. She admitted having billionaires calling saying that they could run the campaign and could raise a billion dollars. She recently said in a magazine interview, ″‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’ And I haven’t gotten that.”

She says she is simply not interested in running for president saying prior to the Golden Globes speech,“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not,” she continued, “And so it’s not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it. ... That’s not for me.”

The media queen said of her best friend Gayle King, sends her text when people ask her about Oprah running. She said, “So Gayle sends me these things, and then she’ll go, ‘I know, I know, I know! It wouldn’t be good for you― it would be good for everyone else.’”

The sitting president seems to be uncomfortable with the idea of her running. Just the mention of the idea, sparked him to hit social media with a threat saying, “Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!” He later called her insecure.

To the message she says she just thought, “what?”
