In "Settle for More," the Fox News anchor writes that Trump had angrily called Fox executives the day before the first GOP debate, saying he had heard that her first question was "a very pointed question directed at him," according to The New York Times. 

Kelly would go on to ask Trump about his history of using disparaging language about women, kicking off a feud between the two.

"Why didn't Hillary Clinton announce that she was inappropriately given the debate questions - she secretly used them! Crooked Hillary,” Trump tweeted last month. 

"Crooked Hillary Clinton even got the questions to a debate, and nobody says a word. Can you imagine if I got the questions?"

Kelly also suggested that someone may have tried to keep her from the debate stage.

On the day of the debate, she wrote, an overzealous driver picked her up to take her to the convention center and insisted on getting her coffee. After she drank it, she felt violently ill, she said, even keeping a trash can under the debate desk.

She never said anyone poisoned her, but did say that she shared the incident with then-Fox News CEO Roger Ailes and a lawyer.
