Donald Trump DEBATE at Las Vegas Republican Debate CNN
Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN)Donald Trump — the billionaire businessman who is dominating the Republican presidential campaign — is suddenly on defense like never before.
As he prepares to take center stage in Tuesday’s CNN Republican presidential debate, Trump is under fire from party leaders — and many of his White House rivals — for advocating a temporary ban on Muslims from entering the United States. And after cruising at the top of the polls for five months, Trump now faces sharp competition in Iowa, where Ted Cruz has taken the lead in some polls.
Trump, who has shown an uncanny ability to withstand controversies that would have felled other politicians, will no doubt set the tone during the two-hour showdown Tuesday night.
