Be careful what you wish for, in that case, pray for it because you might just get it — case in point — Oprah Winfrey.
In a recent interview, while promoting her movie, A Wrinkle in Time, Oprah stated that she would only run for president of the United States if she received a clear letter from God saying that she should do it.
In case you have not been following, for the past months, rumors have been running rampant that the former queen of daytime TV might throw her hat in the 2020 presidential race against the current commander-in-chief, Donald Trump.
Oprah has been traveling all over the world promoting the Ava DuVernay-directed project, and one of the questions that reporters continuously ask her is — will she run for president?
While talking to PEOPLE Magazine, the media mogul responded to that question by saying God needs to send her a sign.
She added: “I went into prayer. God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’ And I haven’t gotten that.”
A few days later, believe it or not, Jesus Christ from Maine wrote her a very heartwarming letter. Jesus A. Christ is an 83-year-old from N. Waterboro who legally changed her name about 50 years ago.
She has been sending messages to world leaders for many years. And talking to a local reporter, Christ explained that she was not aware that there was a political buzz surrounding Oprah.
She told the journalist that she merely likes Oprah and wanted to share some ideas and prayers with her.
When asked if she would vote for Oprah if she did become a candidate in two years — she responded with a loud yes followed by a huge smile.
Christ’s letter went viral after Oprah’s good friend and CBS host Gayle King shared it on social media.
Despite the fact that Oprah has been giving her supporters mixed signals about a potential run for president, they are working hard on social media and elsewhere to convince her that it is the right thing to do for the country. Many see her as more than qualified for the job.
She was raised in the south where she faced countless obstacles, a survival of rape and incest; she became an experienced reporter, a self-made billionaire, and an orator like no other.
For many, Oprah is the complete opposite of Trump, and they think she uplifts people while creating jobs for them.
