During her live coverage of the Democratic National Convention on The Kelly File Tuesday evening, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly discussed the difference in Hillary Clinton’s and Donald Trump’s proposed approach to battle terrorism — specifically ISIS.
The murder of a French priest in Normandy on Tuesday sparked more dialogue and concern that there is no place safe from the reach of global jihad. Kelly explained Trump’s original strategy was to “bomb the oil fields” so the Islamic State would lose its main source of revenue. According to Kelly, he later reversed this statement. After Kelly elaborated on Clinton’s approach, guest Stephen Hayes jumped in, saying “It’s hard to figure out where Donald Trump is on a lot of these issues.”
After the show was over, Trump was quick to post on Twitter, seemingly irritated at Kelly’s segment: “You have no idea what my strategy on ISIS is, and neither does ISIS (a good thing). Please get your facts straight – thanks.”

This minor spat has been a common theme of this election cycle. Although Trump and Kelly have made up since their original feud beginning early in the GOP primary, it’s possible there may be more conflict between the two.
