While on Jimmy Kimmel yesterday, the talk show host and global star, Oprah Winfrey confirmed she will "definitely not" be running for presidency in 2020.

People's hopes of the star running for presidency all started last month when fans lit up Twitter with calls for her to run for president in 2020 after she gave an inspiring speech at the Golden Globe awards show in support of those who have exposed sexual misconduct.

But regardless of his opinion, Oprah admitted she will not be running and never intended to however, she acknowledged the thought, saying: "I am the kind of person who tries to listen to signs. I think, well am I supposed to run the country? I don’t think so"... to which her fans in the audience screamed "you are".

Ahh, maybe someday.
