Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night confirmed that she met with Donald Trump on Wednesday morning, and said that she was able to “clear the air” with the Republican presidential frontrunner after he has repeatedly slammed the Fox News anchor.

“The meeting was at my request and Mr. Trump was gracious enough to agree to it. We met for about an hour, just the two of us, and had a chance to clear the air,” Kelly said on her Fox News show. “Mr. Trump and I discussed the possibility of an interview, and I hope we will have news to announce on that soon.”

“By the way, in case you were wondering, yes, the doorman appeared a bit stunned when I walked in, and they too were incredibly gracious,” she added.

Trump also mentioned his meeting with Megyn Kelly during a town hall with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday night. Kelly’s name was met with boos when Hannity asked about the meeting.

Trump said that Kelly requested the meeting and that she was “very, very nice.”

“Maybe it was time — or maybe she felt it was time. And by the way, in all fairness, I give her a lot of credit for doing what she did,” Trump added. “So let’s see what happens.”
