Trump has more words for Megyn Kelly.

The Republican presidential candidate tweeted on Saturday morning that The Kelly File Fox news anchor should not moderate the upcoming Republican presidential debate along with Bret Baier and Chris Wallace in Iowa on Jan. 28. Trump tweeted: “Based on @MegynKelly's conflict of interest and bias she should not be allowed to be a moderator of the next debate.”

Based on @MegynKelly's conflict of interest and bias she should not be allowed to be a moderator of the next debate.

Trump's comments are the continuation of an ongoing feud with Kelly since their controversial exchange of remarks when Kelly targeted Trump while moderating an earlier Republican debate in August. Kelly confronted Trump about misogynist and sexist comments he had made in the past, calling women names including “fat pigs” and “slobs." Trump later told Don Lemon on CNN that Kelly had “blood coming out of her eyes” and “blood coming out of her whatever” which insinuated he was talking about her menstrual cycle.

The continued criticism of Kelly prompted Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes to come to Kelly’s defense, calling Trump’s actions “unacceptable,” which put Trump in an on-again, off-again relationship with the network.

Trump sounded off on Ailes and Kelly in a Hollywood Reporter cover story where he said he believes in apologizing, but can’t remember the last time he did it. He also said the controversial subject with Kelly during the debate was “fun” and that only a deviant would think he was talking about her menstrual cycle.

Since then, Trump has still not held back in airing how he feels about Kelly. In October, he fired off tweets insulting Kelly’s guests Chris Stirewalt and Marc Thiessen after the men made negative remarks about Trump’s previous debate performances. Trump also retweeted viewers who blasted Kelly and her show.
