"The only reason it was a D was because we didn't care, we didn't give them the information," he said during the Republican debate Thursday on Fox News.

"With respect, we went back and looked at this," Kelly said. "The rating from the Better Business Bureau was a D minus. That's the last publicly available rating in 2010, and it was a result of the number of complaints they had received."

Trump claimed that the rating was elevated to an A, but Kelly shot back saying that information had never been publicly released.

"I can give it to you," he said. "I will give it to you. I will give it to you tomorrow. ... It was elevated to an A." 

The two continued a back and forth, talking about the lawsuit against Trump University, but without the enmity of the first Fox debate in August.

"Let's see what happens in court. This is a civil case, very easy to have settled, could settle it now, very easy to have settled. ... Let's see what happens at the end of a couple years when this case is over," Trump said.

"It's been going for five years," Kelly shot back.

"Yea, it's been going for a long time," Trump responded.
