In a statement released by a Fox News spokesperson Thursday, the news organization announced that Roger Ailes, senior Fox editorial executives, and Donald Trump plan on meeting to discus their disagreements over news coverage of Trump’s campaign.
“Roger Ailes and Donald Trump spoke this morning and plan to have a meeting next week to discuss their differences of opinion regarding Fox’s coverage of Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign,” the statement says.
For past several months, Trump and Fox News have fought over the differences in perceived coverage of the GOP frontrunner. (RELATED: Trump Swears Off Fox News, Raves About Stephen Colbert)

FOX News has held every candidate in this race to the highest journalistic standards throughout our coverage. We believe a candid meeting about our differences is required and that any misunderstandings can be handled without compromising those standards.” (RELATED: Trump Roasts ‘Loooser’ Editor: ‘You’ve Got To Take A Guy Like That Off The Air’)
