Kelly said earlier this week that she has no plans to interview President Trump on her show.
“For this show right now, we’re focused on different things,” Kelly said during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter published Wednesday. “Listen, I wouldn’t say no to a sit-down with President Trump, but it’s not necessarily how I want to kick it off. Especially since we’re going to be kicking it off with an interview with Vladimir Putin.”
“How many of those big egos can you fit into one show?”
