Khloé Kardashian has no time for any negativity in her life — even from the man running for the highest office in the land.

A few days after The Huffington Post reported that GOP nominee Donald Trump had bashed Kardashian during her 2009 stint on The Celebrity Apprentice, the reality star has fired back.

“I’m very good on energy, and I just never really vibed with him from the start,” Kardashian, 32, told The Los Angeles Times while promoting her new denim brand Good American Monday.

According to The Huffington Post, several sources with ties to the show of which Trump was the host at the time said he made off-camera remarks about Kardashian, allegedly complaining that she was cast on the show instead of her sister Kim Kardashian West.

“What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?” he reportedly said. “Why don’t we fire Khloé? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?”

Kardashian told The Times that she was shocked to learn Trump had made such “cruel” remarks.

Regardless, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star isn’t letting any of it get her down.

“I’m a tough cookie, so something that he said — that’s not gonna bother me,” she explained. “Ninety percent of the time, [criticism] doesn’t bother me. I’m not sure why. I think I’m just in my own world. But I believe that’s why [those incidents] happen to me, because I can take it. If that’s what it takes to get even just this little group of people to realize how shady and bad and negative that one person is, I can take it.”

Keeping Up with the Kardashians returns Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on E!
