No. IRA withdrawals are not earned income.

However, you are free to convert whatever amount you choose from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA at any time. If you are subject to RMDs, you can't convert the RMD amount. So you'd have to withdraw your RMD, then you can convert whatever amount remaining in the IRA that you choose.
