Trump Boycotts GOP Debate Because of Megyn Kelly
AP — Donald Trump is boycotting this week’s Republican debate because of Megyn Kelly.
Trump’s campaign confirmed Tuesday night that he will not take the stage if the FOX News anchor and debate moderator is also there. Trump claims Kelly asked him “gotcha” questions at another debate in August.
Trump told supporters in Iowa Tuesday he can skip the debate for one reason:
“I am going to be making a decision with FOX, but I probably won’t bother doing the debate,” said Trump. “I see they pick me as number one. Not only number one, number one by far. But probably I won’t be doing the debate.”
The network says it stands by Megyn Kelly.
Thursday’s match-up will be the last GOP debate before the Iowa caucuses.
