Conservative Talk Radio host Michael Savage welcomed the GOP frontrunner Donald Trump to his show on Tuesday night to talk about a range of issues most importantly whether the or not he would join Thursday’s television debate.
Savage asked Trump “why do we need all these debates, it’s a show for the media,” followed by the one sentence that probably propelled the businessman to change his mind because 30 minutes later Trump had told the nation he was going to skip the debate.
The “Donald J. Trump Special Event to Benefit Veterans Organizations” will be hosted by Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, with doors opening at 5 p.m. local time, and the event itself starting at 8 p.m. — exactly when Fox News lifts the curtain on its main stage debate.
The real estate mogul announced yesterday through his campaign that he will not be attending the debate over concerns about “bias” from Fox News anchor and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.
Trump blamed Fox statement for not participating in debate, insisting it wasn’t the Kelly feud.
At a pre-rally press conference Tuesday, Trump told reporters he planned to organize a charity event for the Wounded Warrior Project to help injured vets, but it remained unclear if the organization was involved in the special event unveiled tonight.
