Democrats have encouraged actress and presenter Oprah Winfrey to consider running against against Donald Trump in 2020.
Her best friend, CBS News host Gayle King, said that Ms Winfrey is “intrigued” by the idea, adding: “She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don’t think she’s actively considering it at this time.”
President Trump said that Ms Winfrey, who endorsed Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton during each of their campaigns, wouldn’t run adding that he’d defeat her anyway.
Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation’s highest office, though she noted that Trump’s victory made her rethink the requirements of the office.
Here are five more likely Democrat candidates for the 2020 presidential bid:
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ progressive views attracted millions of supporters in the 2016 race to be the Democrat presidential candidate.
Although he ultimately lost out to Hillary Clinton, he has continued to promote his political group Our Revolution and travelled around the US to discuss issues from health to education.
However, Mr Sanders will be 78 in 2020 which would make him the oldest person ever to stand for presidency, and by that time will he want to take on the top job?
