Donald Trump Refuses Interview Because He Was Denied The Questions
October 25, 2016

After Trump has spent a considerable amount of time attacking the media for rigging the election for the Clinton campaign, it appears he's got a lot to answer for.

Jenna Bourne of Action News Jax claims to have found herself spiked, for not giving the questions to Trump’s media relations person upon demand.

“.@realDonaldTrump backs out of scheduled 1-on-1 interview w/ me after I decline to send campaign list of my questions,” Bourne Tweeted on Monday.

From there, the Trump campaign reached out over the weekend and asked for a “list of questions” Monday. Bourne, after consulting with station management, sent a few “general topics.” “We agreed that was the right course of action,” Bourne said.

The topics included Marco Rubio, “diplomacy in the White House,” “Hispanic Florida voters,” and “Refugees.”

From there, Bourne relates, the campaign “kind of just ghosted me.”

At the rally later on Monday, Bourne received conflicting narratives, ranging from a denial that the interview had been scheduled, to hearing that a “decision hadn’t been made.”

Bourne waited … and waited … but it “just never happened,” even as another local Jacksonville TV outlet was approached for its interview.

Would giving Trump the questions even help him?
