(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – On Thursday, it was announced that former President Donald Trump, who is currently leading the Republican primary presidential race, is not planning on attending the fourth primary debate scheduled for next week.
Jason Miller, a senior adviser of Trump, was recently asked by the Examiner whether Trump was considering joining the fourth presidential debate if it meant that he could spar with Megyn Kelly.
The Republican National Committee announced on that same day that the next primary debate was set to take place on December 6th in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and that News Nation was going to be the host. The moderators of this debate are scheduled to be Kelly, The Washington Free Beacon’s Eliana Johnson, and NewsNation’s Elizabeth Vargas.
Trump has thus far skipped all of the primary debates scheduled by the RNC arguing that his big lead in the competition means that he has no reason to attend. Thus far, he has also scheduled competing events that take place exactly at the times of the presidential debate and are usually broadcast.
In the 2015 Republican primary debate, Kelly who had at the time worked for Fox News was the moderator. During the primary, the two had often butted heads. Trump has also sat down for an interview on “The Megyn Kelly Show” in September.
On Wednesday, Trump once again called for the committee to stop organizing any more presidential debates, arguing that they were an attempt to push forward RINOs (Republican in Name Only) whom nobody is interested in voting for.
FiveThirty Eight’s last polling average on Thursday found that Trump who is polling at 56.6 percent is significantly ahead of the second candidate in the race, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who has won 14.1 percent of support.
