Last June, Ellen DeGeneres told “Access Hollywood” that she “wouldn’t say no” to hosting Donald Trump — “yeah, if he were brave enough to come on my show.”

What a difference a presidency makes.

On the “Today” show Friday, DeGeneres told host Matt Lauer that she wasn’t interested in talking to Trump.

“Um, no,” she said amid studio applause. “Because I’m not gonna change his mind. He’s against everything I stand for.”

However, DeGeneres recalled previous interactions with the 45th commander in chief.

“I mean, I know him from ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ because when we first started the show … we filmed something with him. I flew in his helicopter and did a bit with him. So I knew him then. I have not spoken to him since he he’s run for president or become president.”

Here’s the June 2016 clip:
