Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump's long-standing feud appeared to be over on Tuesday night during an interview Kelly conducted with Trump on Fox News.
Trump, who recognized that Kelly had set up the meeting, said, "I have great respect for you that you were able to call me and say, 'Let's get together, let's talk.'"
"I would not have done that," Trump said the Fox moderator, in the pre-taped interview that aired on Fox News Tuesday. Trump added that it was "a negative" that he couldn't act in that way.

Trump also brought up his calling Kelly a "bimbo" in the past, adding that it's probably "not the most horrible thing" Kelly has had said about her in her lifetime. "You've been called a lot worse," Trump said.
Referring to Twitter as a "modern day form of fighting back," Trump said that his online reactions have been a big part of his success.
The presumptive GOP nominee acknowledged that he shouldn't have retweeted an unflattering photo of Ted Cruz' wife, Heidi, but still insisted that it wasn’t a "mistake." He said that “mistake” isn’t the word he would use for any part of his candidacy thus far.
"Absolutely I could have done certain things differently. I could have maybe used different language in a couple of instances," Trump said. "But overall I have to be very happy with the outcome."
"If I would not have fought back the way I fought back, I don't think I would have been successful," He added.
After the interview, Trump tweeted, “Well, that is it. Well done Megyn — and they all lived happily ever after!”
