Megyn Kelly: I Had Chance ‘To Clear The Air’ With Donald Trump

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.”

Watch Kelly’s comments on the meeting via Fox News:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
