Ivanka Trump praised Oprah’s ‘empowering’ Golden Globes speech


President Trump’s daughter on Monday praised television star Oprah Winfrey’s recent speech at the Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

Winfrey’s rousing comments last Sunday ignited speculation she may seek Trump’s current place in the Oval Office in 2020.

“Just saw @Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes75,” Ivanka Trump tweeted late Monday, referencing the 75th edition of the annual honors the night before.

“Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TimesUp!” she added alongside the hashtag #United.

The Time’s Up movement launched earlier this month with an impassioned vow to help working-class women dealing with sexual harassment.

The initiative includes a legal defense fund – bolstered by $13 million in donations – aimed at helping less privileged women protect themselves from sexual harassment and reporting it.

Winfrey last Sunday voiced solidarity with the #MeToo movement, which emerged last year when women worldwide began sharing their struggles with sexual misconduct.

“I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon,” she said in Beverly Hills, California.

“And when the new day finally dawns, it will because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘me too’ again.”

Winfrey’s longtime partner Stedman Graham last Sunday told The Los Angeles Times the former television host would “absolutely” seek the White House if she felt the timing is right.

The #MeToo phenomenon emerged last year after scores of women accused famed Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

Multiple powerful men across fields including entertainment, politics and the media have since been disgraced by similar allegations amid a global reckoning on the issue.

A group of 16 women accused President Trump of past sexual misconduct during his 2016 election campaign.

President Trump has repeatedly denied the claims since they first emerged, and the White House said last year that its official position is that the women are lying.
