'I'll beat Oprah': Trump says presidential race will be 'fun'

Oprah Winfrey may think she could easily deliver a humiliating defeat to Donald Trump, if the 45th POTUS decides to run for his second term, which he most likely will.

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah" Trump said from the White House in response to questions about his fellow billionaire's possible political ambitions. He then shared his opinion that he didn't think Winfrey would run but that she "would be a lot of fun". "There'll be no running for office of any kind for me", she told CBS last October.

Since Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday, where she gave an impassioned defense of abused women, told personal stories of her childhood and said a new day was on the horizon for women, speculation has increased about a bid.

NBC, which broadcast Sunday night's Golden Globes, tweeted out a gif of a smiling Winfrey with the caption, "Nothing but respect for OUR future president".

"You need it. I'd love not to build the wall, but you need the wall", Trump said, while negotiations in Congress about the DACA program continue as it comes to an end in March. Piers Morgan also chimed in, insisting politicians should not "underestimate" Winfrey if she agrees to run for office. "I don't, I don't", she reportedly said backstage when asked if she planned to run. But listen, there are people who have said they want to be her campaign manager, quit their jobs and campaign for her. "Have you forgotten Donald Trump?"

"It's hard to be part of the news when you cover the news and she helped people understand what was going on with the story", Rhodes said.

Now, here's the thing: None of the above means Winfrey is running for president. "I think one of the arguments against Oprah is 45". But will she run for president? She's flattered by all of the attention and thrilled her Globes speech resounded with so many people around the country.

ET has uncovered footage from a 1987 interview with Winfrey on the set of The Oprah Winfrey Show, where she revealed that her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, was encouraging her to start a campaign.
