Business owner and television personality Martha Stewart told The Daily Caller that she thinks President Barack Obama has “tried really hard” in his first term but has met “a little opposition.”

TheDC asked Stewart at the White House Correspondents Dinner whether or not she thinks Obama is taking the country in the right direction.

“In my mind, he has tried really hard. He’s met a little opposition,” she told TheDC.

According to Forbes Magazine, Stewart’s net worth is estimated at $638 million, making her the third richest woman in entertainment for 2011.

When asked if she would support the federal government raising taxes for wealthy individuals, as President Obama has proposed, Stewart demurred.

“I think that’s a subject for another night. I have a lot to say,” she replied.
