Megyn Kelly fired back at Donald Trump who refuses to apologize for criticism he levied against the Fox News host after last Thursday’s GOP presidential debate.
“Trump, who is the frontrunner, will not apologize, and I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism. So I’ll continue doing my job without fear or favor,” Kelly said on Monday’s episode of “The Kelly File.”
“And Mr. Trump, I suspect, will continue with what has been a successful campaign thus far,” the host continued. “This is a tough business, and it’s time now to move forward.”
She called Trump an “interesting man who has captured the attention of the electorate — that’s why he’s leading in the polls.”
Kelly’s comments come after Trump claimed he was unfairly treated by her during the debate when asked to defend previous comments about women being “fat pigs, dogs and disgusting animals.”
“I just don’t think it’s very professional,” Trump said Friday. “I’m very surprised at Fox News … it’s pretty unprofessional.”
The real estate mogul also sparked controversy when he suggested Kelly had blood coming “out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever,” during the debate, which sparked angry responses across social media.
When later asked if he was going to apologize to Kelly, “She should really be apologizing to me if you want to know the truth,” he claimed.
Earlier on Monday, Hillary Clinton blasted Trump by calling his comments “offensive” and “outrageous.”
“I think the guy went way overboard,” the Democratic frontrunner said.
Trump is scheduled to appear on Fox News on Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.”
