Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump will sit down for a one-on-one interview during a Fox News special next month. The feud between the lawyer-turned-journalist and the real estate mogul-turned-GOP front runner could finally be over -- or merely starting a new round. Only time will tell.
The Megyn Kelly Presents primetime special, featuring Donald Trump, will air on May 17. During The Kelly File the following evening, "extended portions" of the Trump interview will also be shared with the public.

The volatile feud between the reporter and the potential next president of the United States began as soon as Trump left the debate stage last fall.
Kelly directed a very poignant question at Donald Trump right out of the gate, the Washington Times notes. The Fox News Republican debate moderator asked, "You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs,' 'dogs,' 'slobs,' and 'disgusting animals.' Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?"
Megyn Kelly requested a private conversation with Trump several weeks ago, the New York Times reports. When she announced on-air that the two had met, she also noted an interview "could" be happening in the near future, and would keep her audience posted about such a turn of events.
Megyn Kelly Presents will be the first time she and Donald Trump have been together in front of the camera since the contentious Republican presidential debate hosted by Fox News last August.
"Mr. Trump and I sat down together for a meeting earlier this month at my request. He was gracious with his time and I asked him to consider an interview. I am happy to announce he has agreed, and I look forward to a fascinating exchange — our first sit-down interview together in nearly a year," Megyn Kelly said after being spotted going into Trump Tower to meet with the presidential candidate.
After Trump and Kelly spoke, the real estate mogul and presidential candidate had lunch with Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes. The men reportedly dined inside an office at the cable network's NYC building.
Donald Trump is on the campaign trail in Pennsylvania today. A major blowout in his favor has been predicted for Super Tuesday 4.0. The Republican establishment has been a favorite target of Donald Trump and his millions of dedicated supporters. If he does not hit the 1,237 magic number of delegates, the man with the most ballots cast by American voters might not win the nomination. During a contested convention, most delegates are free to nominate one of the losing candidates, or someone else entirely, if they so choose, after the first floor vote is taken.

While Donald Trump will alone in front of the cameras when he meets with Kelly, the Fox News host will also be interviewing a series of other "notable guests" from the entertainment realm and "other spheres of human interest" will also get a turn at the microphone. The full lineup of guests for Megyn Kelly Presents has not yet been released, but will reportedly be revealed before the Fox News special airs. The senior producer of the show is Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. Bill Geddie is the show's executive producer.
