Megyn Kelly Grills Donald Trump For Lacking The Experience To Run For President

Fox News host Megyn Kelly isn't letting Donald Trump get away with claiming he's qualified to run for president.

When Trump hinted once again on "The Kelly File" Wednesday night that he would launch his 2016 presidential campaign in June, Kelly called him out for some unfavorable poll numbers and his lack of political experience.

She cited a Bloomberg poll from April showing that 62 percent of Republicans and independents would "never consider" voting for Trump if he were to run.

"That's because they don't think I'm running," Trump replied.

Kelly also pressed Trump on his qualifications to run for political office. "You haven't been a military leader and you haven't actually governed a state or been a lawmaker," she said.

"I make great deals -- I've made hundreds of millions of dollars against China," Trump shot back. "All over the world I make money, and I build great things."

The host suggested to Trump that he'd have to be a little crazy, for lack of a better term, to consider running.

"I want to make the country great again," Trump responded. "This country is a hellhole. We are going down fast. I'm conservative, but I have a big heart. I will take care of people."
