Donald Trump Tuesday resurrected his battle with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, slamming her for a segment on her program in which she attacked the Republican nominee for having to discernible strategy to destroy the Islamic State.
Here’s Trump's post on Twitter:
In a panel at the Democratic National Convention that included Steve Hayes, senior writer for The Weekly Standard, Kelly raised the issue of the differences between of Trump and Hillary Clinton on terrorism.
"Even though these two candidates are very different, when it comes to how they'll battle terror, the lines are unusual," she proffered to Hayes. "He's talking about bombing the oil fields, so that he can decimate ISIS' money source — but then sort of reversed that later.
"She's more hawkish traditionally but seems to be pursuing more of the Obama agenda that's been controversial at least back here at home," Kelly said.
Hayes, long a Trump critic, then slammed the nominee.
"It's hard to figure out exactly where Donald Trump is on a lot of these issues. He's been for ground troops to fight ISIS. He's been against ground troops to fight ISIS.
"He uses expletives to describe what he's going to do to ISIS — and I think that gives people a sense that he's strong and would take the fight to them, but he hasn't really detailed how.
"Hillary Clinton, it's just hard to buy the argument that she's been tough on terror even though she has a reputation of being a hawk," Hayes said.
Trump's tweet marks the beginning of another round of attacks on Kelly that first began when she questioned the billionaire developer at the start of the first Republican debate in Cleveland last year.
They made up several times in the interim, with Trump even appearing on Kelly's prime-time special on Fox in May.
