Donald Trump Announces He Will Skip Upcoming Fox News Debate: ‘Haven’t We Had Enough?’

FoxTrumpA hit on this morning’s Fox & Friends on Fox News took an unexpected turn when Donald Trump made a startling announcement regarding the upcoming GOP debate… which is set to air on Fox News.

“Nobody told me about the debate,” said Trump during his phone interview, revealing that a longstanding commitment — a speech to what he estimates is “eight or nine thousand people” on the night of March 21 — is preventing him from attending.

The trio of Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade tried to negotiate with the master negotiator a bit, with Earhardt offering, “The voters love them though!”

“No, you know who loves them? The networks,” clarified Trump. “Haven’t we had enough?” he asked at one point.

The network announced the debate on Monday. Fox News anchors Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace are set to moderate the event, which Fox has announced will take place in Utah at the Salt Lake Convention Center.

“Would you consider reconsidering?” asked Kilmeade.

“You hit me with it yesterday… so I’m not going to do the debate,” said Trump.
