WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly are calling a truce.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee and the star Fox News anchor sat down for an interview broadcast Tuesday nearly nine months after their feud began.

Trump took offense in August to a question Kelly asked during a Republican debate and, in the months that followed, repeatedly attacked her on Twitter.

In the interview, which was taped a few weeks ago, Trump appeared sheepish when pressed by Kelly on how he described her as a “bimbo” on Twitter.

He also said he understood that Kelly was simply doing her job and he “liked” where their relationship was now.

He also seemed chagrined that he retweeted a post that mocked the looks of Heidi Cruz, Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife.
