Speculation about Oprah Winfrey potentially running for president in 2020 is continuing to build, following Oprah’s powerful lifetime achievement award acceptance speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday night. On Monday, a number of Democratic strategists came out endorsing or praising the idea. Meanwhile, President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, also tweeted out a celebration of Oprah’s Golden Globes speech and Hollywood’s new “Time’s Up” initiative to stop sexual harassment and violence. Ivanka wrote, “Just saw @Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP! #United.” Ivanka’s tweet sparked widespread criticism online, given that her father, President Trump, has been accused of sexual harassment or assault by at least 16 women.
