Donald Trump meets with Megyn Kelly at Trump Tower

Donald Trump and the Fox News host Megyn Kelly met at Trump Tower on Wednesday morning, people with information of the matter told CNNMoney.

Fox News chairman Roger Ailes wasn't in attendance, the people said.

An NBC reporter spotted Kelly entering Trump Tower shortly before noon.

Representatives for Trump and Fox had number immediate comment. But Kelly is planning to discuss the meeting on her prime time program Wednesday night.

Kelly reached out to Trump'south office to set up the meeting, one of the sources said.

The face-to-face chat raises the opportunity of a Kelly-Trump interview sometime in the future.

Kelly is known to be seeking high-profile guests for a Barbara Walters-style prime time special on the Fox broadcast network in May.

Trump'south intense displeasure of Kelly -- who he's called unfair, overrated and even "crazy" -- has been one of the subplots of his running for president.

Trump has essentially said she started it by treating him unfairly during the first GOP debate of the season latest August.

The candidate and the journalist didn't speak for months afterward. In fact, he skipped the following Fox debate, in January, which she co-moderated.

But he did attend a third debate held by Fox, in March, and treated her kindly.

Later in the month, he resumed his insults, accusing her of stacking her nine p. m. indicate with anti-Trump guests.

Fox shot back: "Donald Trump'south vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, ill obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land."

Several weeks have passed since then. He's not attacked Kelly via Twitter since April one.

At that time, he wrote, "Is it possible for @megynkelly to cover anyone but Donald Trump on her terrible show. She totally misrepresents my words and positions! BAD."

In an interview latest week, Kelly said she's not made a formal request to interview the candidate.

"To be honest, every time I prepare an invitation to sit down with him, he attacks me on Twitter or elsewhere," she told Variety. "I'd always been hoping I could reach out to him at a time when he wasn't angry. I don't think it'd be a excellent interview if he was mad at me — but then he never stops with the attacks."

She added, "I was just about to ask him to sit down with me two weeks ago, but then he started up again out of the blue."

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that Ailes "brokered" the meeting.
