Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Wednesday met with Fox News host Megyn Kelly in New York City, the network said.
According to the announcement, Kelly requested the meeting with Trump, which was held at Trump Tower, and would discuss the outcome of the meeting during her show.
“FOX News Chairman & CEO 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,” the statement said, adding that Kelly “has acknowledged in recent interviews that Trump is a fascinating person to cover and has electrified the Republican base.”
The back-and-forth between Kelly and Trump began when they clashed during a debate last August, when he accused her of attacking him, and employed insulting language saying Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever."
Trump later announced he would boycott another debate hosted by Kelly, calling her a "lightweight" and a "third-rate reporter."
Fox News later claimed that Trump conditioned his participation in the debate on the network donating $5 million to his charities.
