Oprah Winfrey: I would need a sign from God to run for president

Oprah Winfrey has said she would only run for president if she received a sign from God.

The US chat show star was thrown into the political spotlight after she gave an inspiring speech at the Golden Globes earlier this year.

Ms Winfrey declared that “a new day is dawning” as she accepted the Cecil B DeMille Award, sparking calls for her to consider a run for the US presidency.

She previously indicated she is not interested in moving into the political arena.

However, in an interview with People magazine, Ms Winfrey suggested that God could make her reconsider.

She said: “I pay attention, and when you have that many people saying something, I thought well gee, I never in my life, ever, ever, imagined that I would be in politics. I’ve always said no no no no no.

“Am I at least supposed to look at that question?”

She continued: “Because I’ve had enough people – billionaires – calling me up and saying, ‘I can get you a billion dollars. I can run your campaign’ and I actually went into prayer about it.

“‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it’.

“And I haven’t gotten that.”
