Sanders also said she was not aware of the president having any conversations with Barr, who is a Trump supporter, following the actress's controversial tweet. The initial tweet outraged fans and as well as her own castmates.
And yesterday, after vowing to quit Twitter, Roseanne returned to the network tweeting a response to users calling her "racist".
"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr", Mr Trump tweeted on Wednesday, referring to the former White House senior adviser.
"She's known Trump for 30 years like I have", he said.
Meanwhile, Barr insisted she is not racist.
