TRUMP SAYS ‘NO!’ TO CURRENTLY SCHEDULED 2024 REPUBLICAN DEBATES
Trump strongly objected to the “hostile networks” holding the Republican National Primary debates in 2024, implying that he would not show up to the debates as they stand.
“I see that everybody is talking about the Republican Debates, but nobody got my approval, or the approval of the Trump Campaign, before announcing them,” he wrote on Truth Social on Tuesday. “When you’re leading by seemingly insurmountable numbers, and you have hostile Networks with angry, TRUMP & MAGA hating anchors asking the ‘questions,’ why subject yourself to being libeled and abused?”
The first Republican primary debate would take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the RNC announced in April. The second presidential primary debate will take place at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, as RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said last week.
Trump expanded on the second debate location, adding, “Also, the Second Debate is being held at the Reagan Library, the Chairman of which is, amazingly, Fred Ryan, Publisher of The Washington Post. NO!”
The first Milwaukee debate will be dubbed the “Fox News Republican Primary Debate with partners Young America’s Foundation and Rumble,” according to Fox News. The occasion is slated to occur in August 2023.
Politico claims that the GOP debate that year, when Trump was originally running for president as a first-time candidate, was held at the Reagan Library.
Trump has currently emerged as the undisputed front-runner in GOP primary polling. Who would be his main political rival for the 2024 nomination is unknown. The only other contenders at this point are businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, radio broadcaster Larry Elder from California, former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
RSBN reported this week that Trump recently took a 45-point lead over potential political rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), via Clarity Campaign polling.
