Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly Will Sit-Down for Fox's Megyn Kelly Presents

Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly have put their differences aside for formal sit-down.

Fox announced on Monday that the Republican presidential hopeful will appear on Fox's hour-long special Megyn Kelly Presents this May 17, with extended portions of the interview airing on The Kelly File on Fox News the following night.

"I look forward to a fascinating exchange – our first sit-down interview together in nearly a year," Kelly, 45, said in a press release.

The release also notes, "For the first time ever, Kelly will explore how events unfolded with Trump after the August debate as one of the most prominent voices covering the 2016 presidential campaign of the front-runner. She will also examine Trump's successful campaign for the White House to date and his role in one of the most historic presidential runs in modern times."



Kelly told viewers on the April 13 edition of The Kelly File that she and the businessman had met at Trump Tower on April 13 to "clear the air."

Trump, 69, was critical of Kelly for months after he took issue with her question at the first GOP debate in August 2015, when the Fox News host asked him about previous quotes he'd said to describe women.

The two were cordial March 3 at another Republican debate, but later that month Trump once again targeted Kelly on Twitter, calling her "crazy Megyn" and announcing he would skip the March 21 GOP debate on Fox News, which was to have Kelly as a moderator. The debate was eventually canceled.

"Donald Trump's vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land," a Fox News spokesperson told PEOPLE at the time.

Trumps campaign fired back, calling her a "highly overrated reporter" in a statement to PEOPLE.

Megyn Kelly Presents premieres May 17 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
