Oprah wasn't planning on running for president. Then Trump happened.


If you want to vote for Oprah Winfrey in 2020, your chances of being able to do so just got a tiny bit better.

Winfrey, speaking to Bloomberg's David Rubenstein, said she had never considered running for president until she saw President Trump win the office. 

"I thought... I don't have the experience," Winfrey said. "And now I'm thinking -- oh." 

Here's the moment Rubenstein brings up the possibility of President Winfrey.

We can already imagine the campaign slogans.

But some saw downsides to the possibility of her running.

She also told Rubenstein she's not going to stop working until her "last breath."

Kanye West and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson are already flirting with presidential runs.
