"He would send me press clippings about me that he would just sign 'Donald Trump,'" she said. "And he called me from time to time to compliment a segment. I didn't know why he was doing that. And then when he announced that he was running for president, it became more clear."

"But I can't be wooed," she continued. "I was never going to love him, and I was never going to hate him."

Trump unleashed a series of verbal attacks at Kelly after the journalist questioned him about some of his past controversial statements about women. The presidential hopeful claimed that the questions were unfair.

Vanity Fair contributing editor Evgenia Peretz weighed in on the situation with ET.
