Donald Trump reignited the drama between himself and Fox News’s Megyn Kelly ahead of the January 28th Fox News Republican Debate.
On Saturday Trump tweeted, “Based on @MegynKelly’s conflict of interest and bias she should not be allowed to be a moderator of the next debate.” (RELATED: Trump: ‘The Last Person In The World I Would Try To Woo Is Megyn Kelly’ [VIDEO])
The tweet was referring to the controversy stemming from the August 2015 Fox News Debate when Trump said in the aftermath, “You could see there was blood coming out of her [Kelly] eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” (RELATED: Trump On Megyn Kelly Blood Comment: ‘Only A Sick Person Would Even Think About It’ [VIDEO])
Trump was not pleased with some of the questioning from the debate moderators, specifically Kelly.
The real estate mogul’s Tweet from Saturday stokes the fire ahead of Thursday’s Fox News debate, which will be moderated by Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace. (RELATED: Fox News Chairman Had Harsh Words For Donald Trump)
