Ellen DeGeneres revealed during a segment on Friday’s “Today” show that she would never interview President Donald Trump if given the opportunity. Watch the video below.

Following his guest spot on Thursday’s episode of DeGeneres’ talk show, “Today” anchor Matt Lauer stayed on set to interview the host for his morning news show. When asked if she’d be interested in having Trump visit her talk show, DeGeneres said she wouldn’t “because I’m not gonna change his mind.” She added, “He’s against everything that I stand for. We need to look at someone else who looks different than us, and believes in something that we don’t believe in and still accept them and still let them have their rights.”

DeGeneres went on to recall her brief interaction with the president back when he was hosting “Celebrity Apprentice.” The host explained that she filmed a segment for the former real estate mogul’s reality show, noting, “I flew in his helicopter and did a bit with him. And so I knew him then.” But she further added, “I have not spoken to him since he’s run for president, or become president.”

Also during DeGeneres’ “Today” interview, she discussed her marriage to Portia de Rossi, producing the reality show “First Dates,” turning 60 on her next birthday, and how much longer she plans to host her talk show. As Gossip Cop reported, DeGeneres scared Matt Lauer during his more lighthearted interview on her talk show. Watch the full “Today” video below.
