Donald Trump will not be sitting for a chat on ELLEN – this we now know for sure.
Speaking with Megyn Kelly in advance of her new morning talk show Megyn Kelly Today, DeGeneres asked if she would want to interview Trump on her new talk show.
“I would not say no to the sitting president of the United States,” Kelly answered. “Would you?”
“Yeah,” DeGeneres said to a roar of applause. “He is who he is and he has enough attention and he has his Twitter account and he has ways to get his message across. There’s nothing that I’m going to say to him that’s going to change him.”
“I don’t want to give him a platform because it validates him and for me to have someone on the show I have to at least admire them in some way. And I can’t have someone that I feel is not only dangerous for the country and for me personally as a gay woman but to the world. He is dividing all of us and I just don’t want him on my show,” DeGeneres added.
During her time on the air, DeGeneres has hosted U.S. presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush on her show.
