After Oprah Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globes, many are speculating the entertainment star could run for president in 2020.
 
Her passionate speech at the ceremony has been seen as a first step towards a possible presidential campaign.
 
Oprah called for "a brighter morning even in our darkest nights" at the Golden Globes awards ceremony on Sunday. Many wondered if the talk show queen is aiming for the White House.
 
Winfrey, who received the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, paid tribute to the women who have spoken out about sexual harassment.
 
Last year Winfrey dismissed the notion of seeking presidency, but noted that Trump's victory had made her rethink the requirements of the office.
 
Trump's job approval rating dropped to just 32 percent in December, making him the least popular first-year president on record.
 
The White House said Monday Donald Trump would gladly stand on his presidential record against a potential election challenge from Winfrey in 2020.
