Trump Not Sure Debate Will Go Forward: "I Don't Know, I Have To Look Into It"
Advertisements [?]
Source: Media Matters

This morning, reality TV host Donald Trump visited Imus in the Morning to plug his new book and discuss the wheels coming off the debate he is scheduled to host with Newsmax later this month.

During the interview, Trump indicated he wasn't sure if the debate would actually happen, lashed out at the candidates who have chosen not to attend the debate, complained about the "very unfair" rule that he can't host The Apprentice and run for president at the same time, managed to squeeze two plugs for the finale of The Apprentice (coming May 16!) into the conversation, and said that he has no plans to abandon a potential independent bid for president.


When Imus asked whether the debate would continue with only Santorum and Gingrich attending, Trump responded, "I don't know. I have to look into it," adding: "They really want me to drop my status as a potential person to run as an independent, and, honestly, I don't think I'm going to do that. I'm not going to drop it."

Refusing to name names, Trump expressed disappointment that "some of them don't have the courage to do" the debate and claimed that "a couple of them called me and told me, 'Donald, I'm just too nervous to do it.'"
