Donald Trump Refuses To Apologize For 'Blood' Remarks Towards Megyn Kelly

Presidential candidate Donald Trump has responded to those suggesting he should apologize to Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly for making sexist comments towards her by refusing to apologize.

Trump says that he didn't cross a line with his remarks following a heated interaction with Kelly during Thursday's GOP debate.

During the debate, Kelly confronted Trump about some of the language he has previously used to describe women, such as "fat pig" and "disgusting." While Kelly was reading out the phrases he used, he interrupted her, saying that he has only ever used that language to describe one woman - Rosie O'Donnell.

The day after the debate, Trump said to CNN that "there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever."

In an interview on ABC's "This Week" Trump said that by "wherever," he meant her nose.

On NBC's "Meet The Press" Trump told host Chuck Todd that he would apologize if he was wrong, but insisted that he did nothing wrong in this situation.

Fellow Republican candidates, including Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina, have said that Trump should apologize to Megyn Kelly.

In response, Trump called out both Bush and Fiorina.

"What he said a couple of days ago, if you want to really get down to the important stuff, because what he said about women and women's health issues was ridiculous," Trump said about Jeb Bush, referring to comments Bush recently made about cutting women's health funding.

Trump also called Fiorina's time as the head of Hewlett-Packard "a disaster."

During the controversy, one of Trump's longtime advisors Roger Stone quit the campaign. The campaign said that Stone was fired, but Stone insists that he quit.
