Trump: “Most likely, I won’t be doing the debate”
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Presidential candidate Donald Trump in Iowa on Monday (January 26) said “most likely” he will not take part in the Republican debate which will be hosted by Fox News and Google on Thursday.
“See, the point is with me they are dealing with somebody who is a little bit different,” he said. “They can’t toy with me like they toy with everybody else.”
Trump has been engaged in a public spat with Fox News that began at a debate last August in which he said he was subject to unfair questioning by moderator Megyn Kelly.
“So, let them have their debate, and let’s see how they do with the ratings, and I said, I told them give the money to the wounded warriors, give money to the veterans….now let’s see how many people watch,” Trump said.
“Let’s see how much money Fox is going to make on the debate without me,” he added.
This will be the last one before the Iowa caucuses on Monday marking the first contest in the nomination race for the Nov. 8 presidential election.
