On the latest cover of British Vogue, Oprah Winfrey looks regal and poised. The always insightful, endeared business mogul and television powerhouse Oprah Winfrey has amassed a fortune over the course of 3 decades. Her current net worth is over $3 billion and she’s showing no real signs of slowing down.
Since pivoting to her own television network, aptly titled just that, OWN, she has been focusing more on acting and greenlighting shows that haven’t found other networks to prosper on.

During her interview, she was asked about the possibility of her running for president in the year 2020.
Despite many people feeling that she would be an extremely capable and well-loved candidate, she isn’t interested at all.
The 64-year-old mogul says she knows she couldn’t stomach a presidential run and that the entire process would likely “kill her.”

She’s not fashioned for the life of politics. Her legacy and reputation would take too big of a hit and for that reason alone, it’s not worth it to her.
“In that political structure — all the non-truths, the bullsh*t, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on — I feel like I could not exist. I would not be able to do it. It’s not a clean business.”
So despite giving a rousing speech at this year’s Golden Globes, which lead many people to believe she could potentially be thinking about running for the highest office in the country, she’s continuously thwarted those claims.

When speaking about the state of the world and our society, she likes to shift the narrative. While so many refer to this current state as very dark and heinous, she likes to look at the positive in that at least people seem to be “waking up,” that at least the greater consciousness of so many is beginning to bend towards what is right and just in those moments of feeling deeply hurt, angered and lost.
