Trump Is Going To The Next Fox Debate Hosted By Megyn Kelly
Donald Trump won’t run from the March Republican debate hosted by Megyn Kelly.
“No, I’ll be there,” Trump told the Steve Malzberg Show on Friday. “I have no objection to being there.”
Trump also claimed — somewhat questionably — that his last absence from the Iowa debate hosted by Fox News had nothing to do with Kelly.
“That had nothing to do with Megyn Kelly, the fact that I went out of the last one,” Trump stated. “It had to do with a memo that was sent out by Fox that was a little bit taunting and I said it was inappropriate. And what happened, is because I didn’t do it, I raised $6 million for the vets. So I wouldn’t have changed places. I mean, I did the right thing.”
On Twitter and in interviews, Trump’s campaign blasted Kelly and biased moderator who should be removed. In an radio interview, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski compared the Fox host anchor to DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, calling Kelly a “biased” moderator who leveled “unacceptable” personal attacks against Trump in the August Republican debate.
Trump then claimed on Twitter that his debate absence was a result more of a taunting Fox News PR memo. Trump went on to lose Iowa to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
