Oprah responded to a tweet about her by President Donald Trump on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Monday night when Kimmel asked her about it during an interview on the show.

Trump tweeted about Winfrey on Sunday after seeing her interview a panel of Michigan residents about their thoughts on his presidency so far and on the direction of the country.

Winfrey told Kimmel she heard about the tweet Monday morning from Ava Duvernay, the director of her upcoming movie “A Wrinkle in Time.” 

When asked during the interview with Kimmel whether she considered responding to Trump’s tweet, Winfrey said, “Not a second. You don’t win by meeting any kind of negativity head-on. You just have to say, ‘Well, I don’t know what that was, but all right. I wasn’t in the room when he did that so I don’t know.’”

Winfrey also addressed the tweet on Thursday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show.” 

“I don’t like giving negativity power,” she told DeGeneres.

Winfrey also said she went back to the panel interview to see if she had been biased, and had added in a comment from a Trump supporter to make the panel more “balanced.”

“I was actually working very hard to do the opposite of what I was hate-tweeted about,” she said. 

Winfrey has repeatedly said she will not run for president in 2020.
