On Wednesday, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump made a bombshell announcement about the next debate, set to be hosted by Fox News on March 21, by revealing that he intends to skip it.
He noted that he had already committed himself to delivering a speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s conference scheduled for the same day.
Plus, he complained about there having been too many debates.
“I think we’ve had enough debates,” he said while speaking on “Fox & Friends,” according to Breitbart. “We’ve had 11 or 12 debates.”
“I think we’ve had enough,” he continued. “How many times can the same people ask you the same question?”

Trump also asserted that he would not be willing to reconsider his decision.
Interestingly enough, the front-runner candidate made no mention of the debate moderators: Bret Baier, Chris Wallace and his longtime arch-nemesis, Megyn Kelly, with whom he began to again feud earlier this week.
According to Time magazine, Trump renewed his attacks against the Fox Host host this week after she pinned some of the blame on the violence in Chicago last Friday on him:
“Can’t watch Crazy Megyn anymore,” he tweeted on Tuesday evening. “Talks about me at 43% but never mentions that there are four people in race. With two people, big & over!”
Several minutes later, he added, “Watching other networks and local news. Really good night! Crazy @megynkelly is unwatchable.”
Did Trump really cancel hihttp://thefederalistpapers.org/wp-admin/edit.phps appearance at the debate because of the scheduling conflict, or did he do so because of his beef with Megyn Kelly?
Let me know what you think!
