Real-estate mogul Donald Trump announced in a Wednesday-morning tweet that he would not call Fox News host Megyn Kelly a "bimbo" because doing so would be politically incorrect.

"I refuse to call Megyn Kelly a bimbo, because that would not be politically correct. Instead I will only call her a lightweight reporter!" Trump told his nearly 6 million followers.

Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner, routinely shreds expectations of political correctness on the campaign trail.

In his speeches, Trump also sometimes sarcastically announces all of the mean things he "won't" say about his GOP rivals.

Trump drew some backlash last year when he twice promoted tweets calling Kelly a bimbo, a term used to insult women. One of the times Trump retweeted the insult was after Kelly, a moderator at an August debate, confronted him about past comments he had made about women's looks.

Trump has raged against Kelly and her coverage of his campaign since that debate. And the Fox host played a key role in Trump's big Tuesday announcement that he would not be attending this Thursday's Fox-hosted debate.
