"I just saw President-elect Trump with President Obama in the White House and it gave me hope," Winfrey told Entertainment Tonight on Friday.
"To hear President-elect Trump say that he had respect for President Obama, it felt that he had reached a moment where he was actually humbled by that experience," Winfrey said. "To hear President Obama that he has renewed confidence in the peaceful transition."
But Winfrey expressed optimism for the future now that Trump had won.
"Everybody can take a deep breath now," she said.
