Oprah Winfrey wants people to stop asking if she plans to run for president in 2020. "It's not a clean business. It would kill me," she said in a cover interview for British Vogue magazine.
The 64-year-old TV mogul previously said she asked God to give her a clear sign that she should take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. But that sign never came -- or Oprah didn't recognize it when she saw it.
The bottom line for Oprah is that politics is a dirty business and politicians are dishonest people. The business tycoon says she prefers to keep her well-manicured hands clean.
"In that political structure -- all the non-truths, the bulls**t, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on -- I feel like I could not exist. I would not be able to do it," she told Vogue.
In the interview, Oprah also explained why she declined to wear a Stella McCartney original -- designed exclusively for her to wear to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May.
Oprah said she didn't want to violate long-standing tradition.
"[It] looked white, not cream," Oprah tells Vogue. "I Googled, 'Can you wear white to a wedding?' Answer: 'No, don’t risk it'."
She wears another Stella McCartney original on the cover of the August 2018 issue of British Vogue magazine.
