If the primary polls are to be believed, Donald Trump will easily win the GOP nomination this year. Most of the national polls show the former president with a lead that nobody seems capable of overcoming.
It seems Trump has a huge advantage going into the new year. And he is likely to make moves that will capitalize on his momentum.
Next week, CNN will host another Republican primary debate. Several key figures will not be there, including Vivek Ramaswamy. And now, Trump has revealed what he is going to do instead.
From The Post Millennial:
Former President Donald Trump and Fox News have set up an Iowa town hall event to take place on the same day and time as CNN’s planned GOP primary presidential debate. The events are set for Jan. 10, at 9:00 p.m. ET.
“Fox News Channel will present a live town hall with former President Donald Trump in Des Moines, Iowa on January 10 from 9-10 PM/ET,” reads a press release on the event, which will be co-moderated by anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.
Despite previously criticizing the network, Donald Trump will return to Fox News to attend an Iowa town hall event. This event will take place during the next Republican primary debates, which will be aired on rival network CNN.
Trump has refused to attend a single Republican debate, pointing to his commanding lead in the polls. It seems he has little to fear from his rivals and decided to avoid exposing himself to unnecessary attacks.
Fox News will surely be the big winner of the night. Many Republicans will likely opt to watch the town hall—where the former president will answer questions from voters—rather than watch low-polling candidates argue.
Previous Republican debates of this cycle have been heavily criticized spectacles. The candidates avoided discussing real issues and opted to attack each other with seemingly petty jabs. Ratings have continued to decline as a result.
- Donald Trump will attend an Iowa town hall on Fox News during the next GOP debate.
- The primary debate will take place on CNN, featuring only a few of the candidates.
- Trump has refused to attend a single primary debate, citing his massive polling lead.
