WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump says people who are bullied “gotta get over it” and fight back.

He delivers that message to Megyn Kelly, the Fox News anchor who sat down with him for an interview months after he savaged her on Twitter and elsewhere. The interview will be on the Fox network Tuesday night. (FOX 17, 8:00pm)

In an excerpt, Trump says he’s a counterpuncher who goes after people when they go after him, only 10 times harder.

Asked if he was ever bullied, he said no. But he said bullying doesn’t just happen to children. “People are bullied when they’re 55,” he says.

Kelly responded pointedly, with a smile: “Can happen when you’re 45.” She is 45.

She told ABC’s “Good Morning America” the tone of the interview was cordial, with tense moments.
