“I was not treated well by Fox,” Trump argued. “They came out with this ridiculous PR statement. It was like drawn up by a child. And there was a taunt. And I said,’ how much of this do you take?'” (RELATED: Krauthammer Slams Trump: It’s A ‘Competition Between His Narcissism And His Cattiness’)

“I have zero respect for Megyn Kelly. I don’t think she is very good at what she does. I think she is highly overrated. And frankly, she’s a moderator. I thought her question last time was ridiculous,” Trump said. “And everybody said that after the debate. Well, everybody said I won all six debates and especially the last one. So I don’t mind debating. In fact, I actually like debating.”

Later in the interview, Trump said he didn’t walk away from the debate, he insisted that he was “pushed away” from the debate. (RELATED: Drama Continues: Trump Questions Megyn Kelly’s Bias Ahead Of Fox News Debate [VIDEO])

Thursday night’s Fox News debate is set to be moderated by Kelly, Bret Baier, and Chris Wallace.

Trump has taken issue with one of Kelly’s questions from the August 2015 forum where she discussed Trump’s past comments about various women. Trump has said that question was unfair.
