President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE said Tuesday he could beat entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey in the 2020 presidential race, but doesn't think she'll make a run for the White House.
This year's Golden Globes ceremony was not left wanting for powerful statements. Critics said she defended her father after he was accused of sexual assault and was caught on tape bragging about being able to grope women because he was famous.
But on some issues, she has expressed political views.
In the awards themselves, Aziz Ansari became the first Indian-American to win the Golden Globe for best actor.
"So I want, tonight, to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue".
Oprah has not commented on the buzz around a potential run, but her long-time partner Stedman Graham told The Los Angeles Times she would "absolutely" do it, while sources close to the star told CNN she is considering the possibility of a political bid. "But now she doesn't have a choice", said Streep.
But the trend picked up steam as the night unfolded, particularly after Winfrey's impassioned acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Eric Bauman, chairman of the California Democratic Party, said the speech both made him cry and gave him hope that the women can "just be" in our society.
Sexual exploitation is not limited to Harvey Weinstein, nor Hollywood, and it didn't spring from the earth fully-formed in the year of our Lord 2017. Or is she secretly a Democrat who hates her father?
If Oprah ran, she would have a very good chance of winning.
"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", Mr Trump said. And she was the one person who could do it so strongly.
However, when asked directly whether she has any plans to campaign for the top job yesterday, Oprah responded: "I don't - I don't", Bloomberg reports.
"I am sure of one thing", Tyler Jones, a South Carolina Democratic strategist and founder of SPEAK Strategic, told Newsweek in an email on Monday.
