Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly offered details about her meeting with Republican front-runner Donald Trump at the outset of her Wednesday primetime show.
Kelly, who has come under repeated attack from Trump throughout the 2016 campaign cycle, met with the brash billionaire earlier in the day.
"You may have heard the news today that yours truly took a trip over to Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York City. There I had a meeting with Donald Trump," she told "Kelly File" viewers.
"The meeting was at my request and Mr. Trump was gracious enough to agree to it," she added. "We met for about an hour, just the two of us, and had the chance to clear the air."
Kelly said the two "discussed the possibility of an interview," something she hoped to "have news to announce on that soon."
"By the way, in case you were wondering, yes — the doormen appeared a bit stunned when I walked in. And they too were incredibly gracious," she joked.
Trump also spoke of the meeting during a sit-down interview with Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity Thursday night.
"Well, you know, she called last week," Trump said. "And they set up a meeting. They said, 'Could we come up?' And I said, 'Would you come to Trump Tower?' Because I didn't want any confusion. And she did, and she was very nice, very nice. And we had a meeting. She was very nice."
Trump said he gave Kelly "a lot of credit" for "doing what she did."
"So let's see what happens," he said.
Kelly will host a primetime special with high-profile guests in late-May, leaving the possibility open that Trump may make his debut back on her show then.
