“Mr. Trump and I sat down together for a meeting earlier this month at my request,” said Kelly. “He was gracious with his time and I asked him to consider an interview. I am happy to announce he has agreed, and I look forward to a fascinating exchange — our first sit-down interview together in nearly a year.”
