Ellen DeGeneres says she doesn’t want President Trump on her talk show because “he’s against everything that I stand for.”

“I’m not going to change his mind,” the daytime TV host told Matt Lauer in an interview on “Today” that aired Friday.

DeGeneres, 59, says she met Trump during one of the first seasons of his former NBC show, “Celebrity Apprentice.”

“I flew in his helicopter and did a bit with him. So I knew him then,” she told Lauer.

“I have not spoken to him since he’s run for president or become president,” she said.

In a separate interview with Lauer on Thursday for her eponymous show, DeGeneres discussed with the morning TV anchor Trump’s relationship with the media and his dubbing much of the press as “fake news.”

“It’s something that he goes out and says in front of a crowd of supporters and he gets a great reaction,” Lauer, who estimated he had interviewed Trump roughly “30 or 40 times” on “Today,” said.

“He doesn’t hate the media. As a matter of fact he’s one of the people I know who has over the years loved the media more than most people. But it’s just this kind of catchphrase, the ‘fake news’ and the ‘fake media,’” said Lauer.

“But you can’t have it both ways,” Lauer replied. “You can’t just have a media that you only want them to say the things you want them to say. I think it’s going to die down, I really do.”
