President Donald Trump is not welcome on Ellen DeGeneres show, the host says.
Ellen was asked by the Today’s host Matt Lauer if she would ever invite the president on her show like she did with the former President Obama and former presidential runner up Hillary Clinton.
“Um, no,” she said. “Because I’m not going to change his mind.”
“He’s against everything that I stand for,” the she explained. “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.”
Obama appeared twice on DeGeneres’ highly-rated show; in 2011 and again last February.
Ellen also revealed that after she came out as gay 20 years ago on her 90s show Ellen — she could not find work in Hollywood for three years.
The 59-year-old criticized the president’s refugee policy earlier this year on social media.
“For me, America is great because of all the people who came here. Not in spite of them,” DeGeneres tweeted to her 65 million Twitter followers, along with the hashtag #NoBan:
For me, America is great because of all the people who came here. Not in spite of them. #NoBan
