Trump to Skip Another FOX News Candidates Forum!
Fox News announced their next GOP event today, a town hall style event hosted by Megyn Kelly.
Four GOP Candidates will attend — BUT NOT DONALD TRUMP
The two-hour voter summit taking place in Houston, The Kelly File: Face to Face With Candidates, will feature the four additional remaining Republican candidates, according to Fox News. Those men are Dr. Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. John Kasich, who will join the event via remote. Audience members will pose questions to the candidates who will be onstage one at a time, according to the network.
Trump originally said he would attend the event but his campaign announced on Monday he was busy.
The Trump campaign said he has previous engagements.
“The campaign has a previous engagement in Virginia and then New York, which could not be rescheduled,” Trump spokesperson Hope Hicks said in an email to The Hollywood Reporter. “Given this was just proposed at the last minute, it was not possible to change our plans in order to attend.”
Donald Trump did not attend the last FOX News debate in January before the Iowa caucuses.
The GOP has ignorantly incentivized big media to eviscorate their candidates… So Trump declined this week’s forum.
Megyn Kelly famously bragged after the first FOX News debate that the candidates are in the arena – “And so am I.”
Trump knows it and has decided he doesn’t need to play their game. Why can’t the GOP figure this one out?
