Trump Won’t Participate in Thursday’s Republican Debate, Campaign Says

Trump Won't Participate in Thursday's Republican DebateDonald Trump is pulling out of the GOP debate hosted by Fox News this Thursday.

Ever since the first Republican debate, the Republican frontrunner has been at war with Megyn Kelly. The Fox News host moderated the first debate back in August, and opened with questions asking Trump about derogatory comments he’d made about women.

It looked a lot like typical Trump bluster. And Fox responded by insisting they’d lose Trump before ditching Kelly, and mocking Trump for being unwilling to stand up to their moderator of choice.

“We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president,” the Fox News statement read.

After the first GOP debate in Cleveland in August Trump said he thought the cable news anchor was unfair saying “you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”

Trump said he was putting Fox on notice that they can’t treat him like just any other candidate.

“The point is with me, they’re dealing with somebody that’s a little bit different,” he said. “They can’t toy with me like they toy with everybody else so let them have their debate and let’s see how they do with their ratings.

“Why should the networks continue getting rich on these debates?” Trump continued. “Give some to the Wounded Warriors. You’re making a fortune. Let’s see how much money Fox is going to make on the debate without me, ok? Let’s see.”
