Despite being an ongoing target of insults and vitriol from Donald Trump, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly says the Republican presidential candidate is still welcome to appear on her newscast for an interview any time.

The businessman-turned-politician has been feuding with the television journalist since August when, during a Fox News-hosted Republican debate, Trump blasted Kelly for questioning his history with women, including his references to some women he didn’t like as “dogs” and “fat pigs.”

In response, Trump said Kelly in asking the questions had “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever,” which many saw as a reference to menstruation and a coarse comment that outraged many women.

In a torrent of posts on Twitter and in other television interviews since then, he has called her “crazy” and mocked her show as “terrible.”

“Crazy @megynkelly says I don’t (won’t) go on her show and she still gets good ratings. But almost all of her shows are negative hits on me!” he wrote on Twitter last month.

But asked on Friday if she would welcome Trump on her show were he to come forward, Kelly said there would be a spot for him.

“Absolutely,” she told CBS “Sunday Morning” in an excerpt that aired on Friday.

Kelly said she and Trump had never had any interactions prior to the August 2015 debate and that he appears to be targeting her because he cannot control her or her show.

“I think it’s very clear to him that he cannot control the editorial on my show, or from me, in a debate or other setting,” she told CBS.
