Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly “discussed the possibility” of an interview during their secret meeting on Wednesday, the Fox News anchor revealed on her program, “The Kelly File.”
As TheWrap previously reported, Kelly was spotted heading into the Trump Tower to meet with the Republican presidential candidate on Wednesday, which led to much speculation about what was brewing between the pair.
“We met for about an hour, just the two of us and had a chance to clear the air,” Kelly said.
“By the way, in case you were wondering: Yes, the doormen appeared a bit stunned when I walked in,” she said.
The tension between Trump and Kelly extends back to last summer’s GOP debate, when Trump took issue with her line of questioning and attacked her on Twitter as a result. Trump called her derogatory names and even asked for a boycott of her show, but her ratings and fame continued to rise.
Fox News boss Roger Ailes stood behind Kelly, leading Trump to eventually skip a Fox News debate before reuniting with Kelly at the most recent Fox News debate.
Kelly said Wednesday that she hopes to have news about an interview with Trump on her show “soon.”
