“We had the chance to clear the air,” Kelly said on her Fox News program Wednesday evening. “And in case you were wondering, yes, the doorman appeared a bit stunned when I walked in.”
Kelly was seen entering Trump Tower in New York Wednesday morning, where she met with Trump for about an hour. Fox News confirmed the meeting in a statement, saying it happened at Kelly’s request. The Fox statement added that the network’s chief, Roger Ailes, “has spoken to Donald Trump a few times over the past three months about appearing on a Fox Broadcasting special with Megyn Kelly airing on May 23.”
Trump's campaign has had a tumultuous relationship with Fox News and has been hostile toward Kelly since last summer, when she questioned him about his misogyny while moderating a GOP debate. Trump retaliated with a war of words against Kelly, attacking her appearance and credibility as a journalist. He even suggested menstruation as a reason for her questions.
Trump boycotted another Fox News debate in January co-moderated by Kelly, claiming she was biased against him and saying, “I’m not a big fan of hers.”
Kelly, one of the network’s highest-profile anchors, frequently interviews Republican presidential candidates -- except Trump. Last week, Kelly told Variety, “Every time I prepare an invitation to sit down with him, he attacks me on Twitter or elsewhere.
"I had always been hoping I could reach out to him at a time when he wasn't angry," Kelly continued. "I don't think it would be a good interview if he was angry at me -- but then he never stops with the attacks."
Wednesday's meeting, however, may have turned things around. On her show, Kelly teased a potential Trump interview or appearance.
“Mr. Trump and I discussed the possibility of an interview, and I hope we will have news to announce on that soon,” she said. “Stay tuned.”
