“I’ll beat Oprah if she runs,” Trump says about 2020 race

"I'll beat Oprah," Trump poised to defeat Oprah Winfrey in 2020 Presidential race

By ALLAN TAWAI

On Sunday evening, #Oprah2020 began trending on social media after Oprah Winfrey delivered a rousing speech against misogyny and racism at the Golden Globe Awards. While Oprah has in the past ruled out running for public office, her longtime partner Stedman Graham just told the Los Angeles Times that “she would absolutely do it,” and CNN is reporting that Oprah is “actively thinking” about running for president.

US President Donald Trump weighed in Tuesday on fevered speculation about a potential 2020 White House bid by Winfrey, saying she probably would not run against him, but if she did, he would win.

“I’ll beat Oprah,” Trump said of the Oscar-nominated actress and talk show host.

“I like Oprah,” he said, noting that he had appeared on her long-running afternoon program.

“I know her very well,” he said, before adding: “I don’t think she’s going to run.”

Winfrey’s rousing speech at Sunday’s Golden Globes Awards ceremony ignited speculation that the billionaire talk show queen is harboring Oval Office ambitions.

Some Democrats, still reeling from Hillary Clinton’s shock loss to Trump in 2016, have embraced the idea of having their own celebrity candidate.

But there is little indication that the 63-year-old actually wants the job.

“I don’t think at this point she is actually considering it,” said Winfrey’s best friend Gayle King, who is also a television personality.

King suggested, however, that the actress was “intrigued” by the idea of running.

“I also know, after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind,” she said.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders was also drawn into the speculation on Tuesday about a potential Winfrey candidacy.

Asked by a reporter whether she had any advice for an “outsider” considering a White House run, Sanders said: “I’m not going to focus on anyone’s campaign other than President Trump’s re-election.”

“I’m sure if she decides to run, which I think the president states he doesn’t feel she will, I’m sure she’ll have help with that,” Sanders added.

Sanders was also asked whether she believed Winfrey was qualified to run for president.

“Look, I disagree very much on her policies,” the spokeswoman said. “Is she a successful individual? Absolutely.”

“But in terms of where she stands on a number of positions, I would find a lot of problems with that,” Sanders said. “But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run.”

Sanders was also questioned about a tweet from Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump praising Winfrey’s Golden Globes speech.

“Just saw @Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes,” Ivanka Trump tweeted Monday night.

“Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP #UNITED,” she said in a reference to the campaign to end sexual harassment.

Sanders said the message from the White House is that “everyone should come together.”

You can easily migrate to and work in the US if you have these extraordinary abilities

Published

US Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a new section in the USCIS Policy Manual relating to the O nonimmigrant classifications. O-1 nonimmigrant status is available for aliens of “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, arts, business, education, and athletics, and aliens with a record of “extraordinary achievement” in the motion picture or television industry, who are coming to the United States temporarily to work in their area of ability or achievement. O-2 nonimmigrant status is available for essential support personnel coming solely to assist an O-1 artist or athlete.

The new section expands guidance on evaluating O-1 eligibility, including how officers determine if the petitioner has satisfied the evidentiary criteria and established that the beneficiary has extraordinary ability or extraordinary achievement, as applicable. It also clarifies when a petitioner may rely upon “comparable evidence” to meet the requirements for certain O-1 beneficiaries.

USCIS is also incorporating existing guidance relating to certain nonimmigrant athletes, coaches and entertainers (otherwise known as the P-1, P-2, and P-3 nonimmigrant classifications), and their essential support personnel into the Policy Manual.

For more information, see the USCIS Policy Manual.
