US President Donald Trump has reacted on the latest buzz about American talk show host Oprah Winfrey's possible run for the presidency in 2020.

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", he told reporters in the the Cabinet Room during a meeting on immigration with members of Congress. Her speech was linked to a campaign speech which in turn stirred rumors that the former talk show queen's eying a potential presidential run in 2020.

Mr Trump said this week he did not think Ms Winfrey would run for the White House, noting that he knew her "very well" and had appeared on one of the final episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

"I'll tell ya, she's really a great woman, though".

In an Instagram post, singer Seal accused Oprah Winfrey of being aware of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct and "being part of the problem for decades".

"Right now, Oprah's about 11:1, but keep in mind when Donald Trump ran he was 60:1 facing 16 opponents", he said.

President Trump said "I don't think she's going to run" and boasted he would beat her if she did.

"Hmm. Let's just say we've all heard things about each other, haven't we?" she wrote in the comments.

The press secretary added: "Is she a successful individual?"

"It's clear you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States", she said.

Speculation surrounding a possible 2020 bid by Winfrey exploded following the mogul's headline-grabbing remarks at the Golden Globes Sunday night.

Winfrey is the first black woman to accept the award. "I thought they'd be talking about it because I knew it was going to be good".

"She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think that she's actively considering it".

"I have people calling me - very important names that I won't name - who said, 'I will be her campaign manager". "Actually, I think I'd be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump". "I think it was a homerun on many levels".

During the Golden Globes, Winfrey gave an empowering speech, alluding to the importance of truth given the turmoil that the media has been under in the past few months.
