A disprorportionate amount of chatter has flourished during the last week after Donald Trump's refusal to appear at the last Republican Presidential Debate on Thursday January 28, 2016, because Megyn Kelly will moderate the Political Event. Supposedly, Donald Trump was viciously grilled by Fox's Megyn Kelly during the first Republican Presidential Debate in 2015, and apparently Mr. Trump doesn't want a repeat of the harsh scrutiny before the American Audience in prime-time; Afterall, he is the percieved Republican Candidate for the Presidential Election this coming November (2016).
Upon a closer examination what is presented as a clash of personalities between Candidate Trump and Fox News Anchor, Megyn Kelly may not actually be what 'they' are leading us to believe it is. It seems to me that this might be a case of drawing attention to create interest. A ploy to pretend animosity when in fact it's done to achieve either favor or sympathy.

In 1983, the Reverend Norman Vincent Peale, described in a New York Times profile as Trump's "pastor" and "family minister," said that Trump was "kindly and courteous in certain business negotiations and has a profound streak of honest humility." Trump calls his own book The Art of the Deal (1987) "my second favorite book of all time", and has told campaign audiences: "Do you know what my first is? The Bible! Nothing beats the Bible." Declining to name his favorite Bible verse, Trump said "I don't like giving that out to people that you hardly know."
Trump has said that while he participates in Holy Communion, he has not asked God for forgiveness for his sins. He says: "I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don't bring God into that picture."
Trump has praised and maintains relationships with several prominent national evangelical and Christian leaders, including Tony Perkins and Ralph Reed. During his 2016 presidential campaign, he received a blessing from Greek Orthodox priest Emmanuel Lemelson.
Trump also has strong ties with the Jewish American community. Asked in 2015 at an Algemeiner Journal awards ceremony about having Jewish grandchildren, Trump said: "Not only do I have Jewish grandchildren, I have a Jewish daughter (Ivanka, who converted to Judaism before her marriage to Jared Kushner) and I am very honored by that … it wasn't in the plan but I am very glad it happened."
Both Megyn Kelly's and Donald Trump's personal info was found on Wikipedia.
