Trump took a gamble and skipped the last Republican debate to host an event for veterans instead. Trump maintains that his decision had nothing to do with any sort of “fear” or “conflict” with Megyn Kelly, which many have accused him of.
Fox will be hosting another Republican presidential debate in early March, and Megyn Kelly will be there.
So will Trump? As HotAir reports – he’ll be making a return.
Donald Trump’s climbdowns at the end of this week don’t stop with Ted Cruz, apparently. In an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg, Trump committed to attending the next Republican debate on Fox News on March 3rd, even with Megyn Kelly as moderator. He claimed that his boycott of the last Fox debate had “nothing to do with Megyn Kelly“:
“I’ll be there, I have no objection to being there,” Trump said Friday on the “Steve Malzberg Show,” when asked if he’d be at the Fox News debate in March
“And that had nothing to do with Megyn Kelly, the fact that I went out of the last one had to do with a memo that was sent out by Fox that was a little bit taunting and I said it was inappropriate,” he continued.
“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.”
As HotAir notes, Trump did protest the last debate on the basis that Megyn Kelly would be moderator. I don’t know what caused the change of heart this time around, but sparks are sure to fly!
