FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly said Monday night that she will not apologize for her questions to Donald Trump in Thursday's debate, saying "we agree to disagree."

"Apparently Mr. Trump thought the question was unfair and I was attacking him," she told viewers. "I felt he was asked a tough but fair question. We agree to disagree."

Kelly said she would not respond to Trump's personal remarks about her, which included a comment he made that was widely interpreted as a suggestion she was menstruating during the debate.

"I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism," she added.

Trump said on Monday that he's been assured "fair" treatment by Fox News after a conversation with the network's chairman and CEO, Roger Ailes.

Trump's claim comes just hours after he told MSNBC that he would not respond to questions about whether or not he'd spoken with Fox News brass about his feud with anchor Megyn Kelly.

On MSNBC's Morning Joe Monday morning, Trump declined to disclose any conversations with FOX, saying "my whole life has been led on the theory that I don't want to embarrass people."

Ailes later confirmed that he had spoken to Trump.

"Donald Trump and I spoke today," Ailes said in a statement. "We discussed our concerns, and I again expressed my confidence in Megyn Kelly. She is a brilliant journalist and I support her 100 percent. I assured him that we will continue to cover this campaign with fairness and balance. We had a blunt but cordial conversation and the air has been cleared."

Over the weekend, Trump doubled down on his criticism of Kelly's questions during the first GOP primary debate. He continues to deny that his comment that Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever" was intended to imply that her tough questioning was attributable to the fact that she was menstruating.
