A question that has been gripping everyone’s minds is if Oprah Winfrey will run for president. Finally, now, the lady has spoken and she wants to set the record straight once and for all. Responding to the rumours that have been going around, the legendary talk show host said to Hollywood Reporter’s podcast, “I will never run for public office. That’s a pretty definitive thing.”

Having gotten that out of the way still did not stop people from indulging in some wishful thinking. When the host asked if she thought she could win over Donald Trump if he sought a second term, Winfrey said, “I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that,” she said. “But I will never have to know the answer to that, because I will never run for public office.”

Trump had said in 2015 that Winfrey would be his ideal running mate.
