During his appearance on The Laura Ingraham Show Wednesday morning, Donald Trump changed his tune yet again on all things Megyn Kelly.
Host Laura Ingraham asked Trump about his renewed spat with Fox News by bringing up that fact that she, too, is a Fox News employee:
INGRAHAM: You know, I’ve worked for Fox for years, and this big “death struggle” between you and Kelly… I personally don’t think that’s helpful, you need my advice — who the heck am I? — I just think your message on trade, globalism, immigration and middle class renewal is a serious platform of ideas…
TRUMP: Actually, I watched her show last night. She was very nice and I appreciated it. She had Frank Luntz on, who said I scored the highest score that he’s ever had. I said, “What’s going on over here? What happened?” But Frank Luntz, you know, he was another one that I wasn’t so thrilled with.
INGRAHAM: Are you going to keep retweeting these “bimbo back in town” kind of comments?
TRUMP: No, I have much bigger things to think about, honestly. They made a big deal out of that and I just don’t see… that was a retweet. I do have a lot of things I want to get out…
INGRAHAM: So this Fox thing is… Are we good?
TRUMP: Roger Ailes is great. He’s a special guy and a good friend of mine. We just spoke two minutes ago. I mean, Roger Ailes is a great guy and no, I have no problem.
Ingraham later tweeted about Trump’s comments:

After Trump decided to attack Kelly again on Monday, Ailes called on the New York business mogul to apologize the following day. Several other Fox News personalities provided public responses of varying degrees. Trump, however, refused to apologize and instead attacked Kelly’s supposed lack of professionalism.
