It is no secret that former Fox News host Megyn Kelly and 45th President Donald J. Trump have had a tumultuous past.
During a 2015 Republican debate, Kelly questioned Trump about his past sexist comments towards women, to which he responded “ridiculous” and “off-base”.
Following the event, Trump told then-CNN anchor Don Lemon, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever”. This comment sparked an infamous feud between the two public figures that lasted years – until recently.
Kelly revealed during an episode of The Megyn Kelly Show on YouTube that she met with President Trump over the weekend at Turning Point Action’s West Palm Beach convention “for the first time in years”, and it was “frankly great to see him”.
She went on to say that all “nonsense” between them is under the bridge now, as he was incredibly magnanimous toward her during their meeting. To further demonstrate how much has changed since their infamous feud began, she played a clip from his speech at the convention where he praised her as “all in” and “great for the country”. In response, she agreed with him saying “he’s right – it’s the country I care about.”
Craig Bushon, host of the Craig Bushon Show on Spreely TV noted: “It appears both parties have set aside their differences for what really matters, our nation’s welfare. Despite the media headlines full of drama surrounding this story over recent years, it is clear that both parties are united in their desire to make our country better through whatever means necessary – even if those means include making amends with one another after many hard feelings have been expressed publicly by both sides throughout this long rivalry.”
“Whether you believe or not in Donald J. Trump’s policies or rhetoric doesn’t matter here because we can all agree that having two powerful figures like these put aside their differences for something bigger than themselves should be applauded by us all – regardless of political affiliation or opinion on either individual involved in this story itself.” Bushon added.

According to the Gateway Pundit:
But the damage had already been done, and headlines were full of the “feud” between Kelly and the then-contender for the Republican nomination.
On “The Megyn Kelly Show” Monday, Kelly called the mended relationship a “testament to how people can change, people can rebuild relationships, people can move forward in a positive way…”
She then played a clip from Trump’s speech at the convention where, after he had joked about the “terrible question” she gave him, Trump praised Kelly as “all in” and “great for the country.”
Kelly agreed with him.
“He’s right,” she said. “It’s the country I care about.”
Kelly’s comments reflect the nation’s view of Donald Trump. Although sometimes brash and politically incorrect in his speech, Trump has an aura that captivates millions of Americans.
Trump wears his heart on his sleeve.
And, much like he said about Kelly, the nation sees that Trump is also “all in” for the country.”
It’s why they can look past his controversial remarks and see the man who is willing to take everything that is thrown at him and still keep fighting.
Trump’s ability to connect with his base and energize his supporters is undeniable. He has been able to tap into the frustrations of many Americans who feel left behind by traditional politics and crave a leader willing to challenge the status quo.
His supporters admire his unapologetic approach and see him as someone who genuinely cares about the country’s wellbeing.
The mended relationship between Trump and Kelly symbolizes the possibility of reconciliation and growth.
OMG! @megynkelly's attitude of forgiveness made my day.
Both forgave each other it seems and chose to move on.
This is an example of two great individuals. https://t.co/8Ol3KQSF6l
