Megyn Kelly: Trump tried to influence coverage with gifts
LOS ANGELES — In a new book, Megyn Kelly says Donald Trump tried unsuccessfully to give her a free hotel stay as part of what she called his pattern of trying to influence news coverage of his presidential campaign.
In “Settle for More,” to be released Tuesday, Kelly also says Trump may have gotten a pre-debate tip about her first question, in which she confronted him with his critical comments about women. Her book also details the insults and threats she received after Trump tirades objecting to her reporting.
Kelly is the host of Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly Report.” She says Trump routinely attempted to gain favorable treatment from other journalists.
The Associated Press obtained an advance copy of the book Saturday.
