Disney CEO Bob Iger on Tuesday tried to put to rest speculation about a potential 2020 presidential run.

“Just to set the record straight — I am not," Iger said at the Vanity Fair summit, according to a Yahoo finance reporter. "We keep coming back to this. I’m running the Walt Disney company."

Trump publicly criticized Iger in May following the cancelation of "Roseanne," accusing him of not issuing an apology for a corrected ABC News report concerning former national security adviser Michael Flynn. 

ABC, which is owned by Disney, apologized after Ross's incorrect report and suspended him for four weeks.
