During the interview, the tense interaction from 2016 between the newscaster and the former president was brought up, to which the duo squashed their feud.
"How about do the one just, just before Iowa do it all? do it, I'll moderate it…" Kelly began with a laugh, referencing the upcoming GOP debate, which Trump has chosen to sit out of.

"No I got a little bit lucky. I came up with a good answer. But can I tell you there are questions that you can ask that no matter how good you are debating, no matter how, you could be the greatest debater in the world, I get great credit for that.

"I just don't want to," he concluded.
