Donald Trump Will Participate In Next Fox News Debate With Megyn Kelly Moderating

Suddenly, Donald Trump doesn’t have a problem with Megyn Kelly and he never did… he’d like you to believe. It has nothing – nothing, I tell you – to do with the fact that quitting the last Fox News debate may have cost him votes in the Iowa caucuses.

Suddenly, Donald Trump doesn’t have a problem with Megyn Kelly and he never did… he’d like you to believe. It has nothing – nothing, I tell you – to do with the fact that quitting the last Fox News debate may have cost him votes in the Iowa caucuses.

From The Washington Post:

“I’ll be there. I have no objection to being there,” said Trump in an interview today with Steve Malzberg of NewsmaxTV. “That had nothing to do with Megyn Kelly, the fact that I went out of the last one. It had to do with a memo that was sent out by Fox that was a little bit taunting.” In any case, Trump expressed no regrets for having skipped out on the Jan. 28 affair, saying that he held an event to benefit veterans that raised $6 million. “So I wouldn’t have changed places.”

And for the sake of history, that Fox News statement that Trump called “taunting”? That came only after Trump had been publicly blasting Kelly and musing aloud about whether he should skip the debate.

That’s right. Trump had lots of objections to Kelly before he claimed that his real reason for skipping the debate was the “taunting” press release.

It's hard to know if Trump's absence cost him a win in Iowa or not. But in his Fox make-up moves, Trump has said it might have.

So will this latest frame of mind stay with Trump up to and through the March 3 debate? And the bigger question in my mind is whether or not Kelly will pull any punches.

We’ll see.
