“Just saw @Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes,” the first daughter and White House adviser tweeted Monday night, linking to a video of the speech. 


Winfrey delivered a passionate speech for women at the Golden Globes as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the awards show.

“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up!” Winfrey said.

CNN reported earlier Monday that the entertainment magnate was “actively thinking” about running for president.

However, Winfrey said in an interview after the Golden Globes Sunday that she wasn’t considering a run.

The White House said Trump would “welcome” a challenge by Winfrey.

Winfrey's speech has been widely noted for her strong language against sexual harassment and misconduct.

More than a dozen women have publicly accused the president of sexual misconduct and came together to call for a congressional investigation into the allegations last year.

Democratic female lawmakers also called for a probe into the allegations.
