Oprah Winfrey, 64, is continuing to deny speculation that she will make a U.S. presidential run in 2020. The media mogul told British Vogue, for the August cover story, that she was never interested in running for office because it would “kill” her.
“In that political structure — all the non-truths, the bulls**t, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on — I feel like I could not exist,” Winfrey told the publication. “I would not be able to do it. It’s not a clean business. It would kill me.”
Last year, she addressed the rumors about the presidency in People magazine saying the only thing that would make her run is a sign from God, which she has not received.
Citizens began to campaign for Winfrey to run for office after her compelling Golden Globes speech earlier this year, in which she supported the #MeToo movement and introduced #TimesUp.
Though she may not be throwing her hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential election, the magnate has landed a new position at Apple working on original content for the tech company’s streaming service.
