Oprah Winfrey feels hopeful about President-elect Donald Trump and says everyone should “take a deep breath” now that the election is over.
Winfrey, who had endorsed Hillary Clinton, feels optimistic about a Trump presidency after seeing his respectful demeanor toward President Barack Obama when they met at the White House this week.
“I just saw President-elect Trump with President Obama in the White House and it gave me hope,” Winfrey told ET. “To hear President-elect Trump say that he had respect for President Obama, I felt that he had reached a moment where he was actually humbled by that experience.”
Winfrey added: “To hear President Obama say that he has renewed confidence in the peaceful transition, I think everybody can take a deep breath now! Thank you.”
In an earlier interview with the AP, Winfrey said she sensed Trump was humbled by the weight of the office he will assume, and that bolstered her confidence that he will approach his job seriously.
“Hope is still alive!” Winfrey said. “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. I think it’s a humbling process that now you literally have the weight of the world on your shoulders.”
Hey, if Oprah says everything’s going to be fine, you know it will be.
