Donald Trump Says He Has Regrets as He Buries the Hatchet With Megyn Kelly in Interview


All bickering was cast aside as Donald Trump and Fox News’ Megyn Kelly talked through their issues during an interview airing Tuesday night.

Kelly's sit-down with the GOP presidential frontrunner was a network special titled, "Megyn Kelly Presents."

The elephant in the room was the situation between Kelly and Trump, where the two have sparred in the press since she hosted the first Republican debate in August.

During the session at Trump Tower in Manhattan, Kelly told the real estate tycoon, "let’s talk about us.” She brought up the August debate when she asked about his history of name-calling against women.

Trump said he felt Kelly was being unfair during her line of questioning at the time. 

Kelly fired back, saying, "I thought it was a fair question. Why didn't you?"

Trump responded that it was a statement more than question and believed it was unfair.

Kelly then pushed him on his use of the word “bimbo,” a word he has called her in the past.

"Did I say that?" Trump asked before adding: “"[It's] not the most horrible thing. Over your life, you've been called much worse."

After watching the interview from his home, the billionaire once again took to Twitter, this time to proclaim how he and Kelly are moving on.

 

She said the pair reached a “truce” in order to have the interview last month.

The two discussed a variety of topics including mistakes made on the campaign and his regrets.

“Absolutely I have regrets. I don’t think I want to discuss what they are,” Trump said. “I could have done things differently, I could have maybe used different language in a couple of instances. Overall I’m very happy with the outcome.”

Trump, who famously criticized Sen. John McCain last summer about being captured during the Vietnam War and made disparaging comments about former rival Carly Fiornia’s face, said he uses his tongue as a weapon to defend himself when he feels “wounded.”

“When I’m wounded, I go after people hard. I try and unwound myself,” he said.

He did admit that he doesn’t “wish” he did something different.

“If I didn’t conduct myself in the way I’ve done, I don’t think I would have been successful,” said Trump. “If I were soft, if I were presidential. In a way it’s a bad word, because there’s nothing wrong with being presidential.”

He admitted that his biggest fault is often what he happens to retweet.

"The thing that gets me in trouble is retweets. The retweet is really more of a killer. The tweets, I seem to do pretty well with," he said.
