Oprah Chimes In on Trump Presidency: ‘Hope is Still Alive’

Oprah Winfrey said after seeing president-elect Donald Trump meet in the oval office with President Barack Obama that “hope is still alive.”

The 62-year-old talk show host, who supported Hillary Clinton in the election, told the Associated Press on Thursday that she is not as worried as she was on election night about the next four years following Trump’s acceptance speech and his meeting at the White House.

“I could sense, maybe I’m wrong, but I could sense from Donald Trump’s body language even when he came out for the acceptance speech, that brotha has been humbled by this whole thing,” Winfrey said. “I think it’s a humbling process that now you literally have the weight of the world on your shoulders.”

Winfrey added that her new positive outlook came after hearing Obama talk about the two teams working together for a smooth transition of power.

The talk show host came out and voiced her support for Clinton over the summer in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
